So you have decided to travel to another city or country for the Halloween party or the cosplay convention? Worried about how to care about your contact lenses? Don’t worry we will tell you how you can care for your white contact lenses while you travel for the upcoming festival or event.
Your lenses require proper care and maintenance, especially while you are traveling. You need to get the accessories right and everything else. Then there is a small matter of the safety and precautions which are associated with contact lense.
Below are some important tips for you.
- Limit contact lens wear during a flight.
I don’t know if you are going to wear your crazy lenses on the flight or not. Or if you are going to use the normal coloured contact lenses and plan to wear them on the flight, for any reason, limit the wear time. That is because the lenses require some level of dampness in the atmosphere as they are 70% water content. The problem is that the humidity drops from almost 60% on the ground to 25% on the flight. It will cause abrasion in your eyes. It is not safe. Or you would be required to use eye drops every now and then
- Stock up your supply before you leave.
Where ever you are leaving to make sure you have all the supplies you need for your contact lenses, whether they are coloured lenses or crazy Halloween white contact lenses. That is because you may not find the accessories of your contact lenses in other place or may require them during the flight. Keep all the solution and cases you need.
- Pack some contact lenses in your overnight bag.
You may face an unexpected problem, like your luggage not arriving with you at the airport. It is quite normal that your luggage gets late. In that case, you will be left hanging waiting for your lenses.
In order to avoid such problem, it is advised that you keep an extra pair of contact lenses in your hand carry. That is why it is also suggested that if you are traveling for events and convention, you should buy an extra pair of crazy contact lenses.
Keeping a pair in your hand-carry will save you in at times of emergency. Make sure you have all the necessary accessory with you in the bag.
- Daily contact lenses free up packing space
You may be traveling to places who have restriction laws with regards to the things you can carry in your luggage or your hand carry. Some countries have restrictions over carrying certain fluids which may include your solution. In that case, you should rather carry daily contact lenses, after all for Halloween and conventions those are best because you will be using them once.
This will help you free some space also and you can carry other important stuff you thought you had to leave behind.
- there are more solutions to your problems.
It is possible that you cannot find daily contact lenses. In that case, you can go and buy weekly disposable contact lenses. Even though you would be required to care for them but it will work great as an emergency solution.
- Brand Names are worthwhile
It is possible that you are forced to buy contact lenses in the place you have arrived. In that case, you would need the brand from whom you buy contact lenses. Now it is highly possible that you will not find that brand over there.
It is always a good idea to search for the brand which sells the products equivalent to the products sold by the brand you prefer. You can ask your doctor or do your research on the internet.
- Keep them clean
The pollution levels differ in every place you travel to. What would you do if the country you have arrived in has more air pollution? It would be difficult for you to keep wearing your lenses for a longer period. It is advised that you keep your lenses clean every time, before and after use. You cannot allow any particles to stick to the lens and enter your eye.
Clean your lenses with a solution and clean your eyes properly.
- Give your eyes a rest
Wearing a lens continuously is not a healthy option always. Lenses no matter how comfortable and gas permeable, they provide a hindrance to your eyes in collecting oxygen. Wearing lenses too long is going to stress out your eyes. That is why you must give your eyes some rest while you are on a vacation, believe me, for the sake of your eyes you should allow them some rest. You need to provide your eyes some time to breathe properly, take off your lenses when you are not doing anything.
