1. Pay attention to your eyewear prescriptions

At least a few weeks before you pack your business suit or bathing suit, get your eyes checked to make sure your contact lens and eyeglass prescriptions are up to date. This is especially important if you’re going to be away from home for an extended period or if you’re headed to another country.

Aside from bringing a backup pair of glasses with you, put copies of your prescriptions in an accessible bag in case of an emergency.

The numbers that appear on your prescriptions are recognized around the world, meaning you can order new contacts or glasses in Texas or Taiwan.

  1. Pack all your eye care gear

In addition to contact lens solution and a backup pair of glasses, as well as a few leak-proof contact cases, spare contacts and any other eye care supplies you need. You may not use all of it, but it’s best to be on the safe side.

Very important: Always make sure you discuss and make decisions about your eye care based upon a formal appointment with your optician.
