Bring an Extra Pair of Glasses When Going on Summer Vacation

Vacation is a time to relax and get away from the everyday grind. To make sure you enjoy every minute of your hard-earned getaway, take some time to prepare before you leave and don’t forget to pack everything you need to see clearly!

Bring an Extra Pair of Glasses
No matter how careful you are, there’s always a possibility of breaking or misplacing your glasses. While this can be an annoyance at home, it can be extremely frustrating while on vacation and away from your optometrist and eyeglass retailer. Avoid the stress altogether by packing a spare pair of glasses.

Additional Tips for Travelling with Glasses

  • If flying to your vacation destination, pack an extra pair of glasses in your carry on. You don’t want to lose your glasses if the airline misplaces your luggage and there’s a greater chance of glasses breaking when being loaded and unloaded from the plane.
  • Don’t forget to bring your prescription sunglasses! If you’re heading away to a tropical beach location and are expecting a lot of sunshine, you’ll want a quality pair of prescription sunglasses to protect your eyes!
  • Stash a few lens clothes in different bags and purses so that you always have one handy. If they’re readily available, there’s a greater chance you’ll use it over something that can cause scratches or abrasions.
