As you travel for summer vacations, family reunions, and work trips, be sure you pack everything you need for your eye care needs! Here are our top three eye care tips for your summer travel:
Have you ever had that feeling of panic after you lose your wallet or cell phone on a trip? The feeling is similar, or even worse when you lose your eyeglasses or contact lenses. You’re in an unfamiliar place, struggling to read street signs, and unable to drive your rental car because of your vision issues.
When you pack your extra glasses or contact lenses, store them in a separate place from your primary pair. This way, if your handbag with your everyday pair of glasses or contacts gets lost, you won’t lose the spare as well.
If you plan to soak up the sun while traveling, keep your sunglasses on hand. UV rays can cause long term damage to your vision, and even burn the surface of your eyes through a condition called . Provide even more sun protection for your eyes with a hat or visor.
Sometimes you won’t notice subtle changes to your vision until you move outside your normal routine. You can drive home from work without needing to see street signs because you’ve memorized the path. You don’t wear your glasses inside your house because you’re so familiar with every item’s location. But when you travel to a less familiar place, you’ll begin to notice that your old eyeglasses aren’t cutting it anymore!
With EyeQue’s tool, you can check your refractive error and get EyeGlass Numbers® anywhere to verify whether your vision has changed. You can even use the EyeGlass Numbers generated by VisionCheck paired with EyeQue’s app to order new eyeglasses online while you’re on your trip!
