How to Take Care of Prescription Glasses While Travelling

“What’s the one thing that you cannot go on a trip without?”

Most people will respond to this with the expected response of, “my phone”, a select few who wear glasses may pause, and ponder over the question and then very pragmatically say: “My glasses”.

If you wear glasses, then this statement would resonate with you as well. It is completely understandable, because when you think of something that you absolutely cannot function without, your vision would be at the top of your list.

Understanding that approach, we have put together a list that would help you take care of your vision over your travels in the best manner possible.

So without any delay, here’s a list of suggestions that will help you enjoy your travel experience without you having to function without your glasses.

Get an Extra Pair of Glasses

When you are traveling to a new location, you have to make sure that you have a backup of all the essentials such as any required medication with you so that you  can minimize the aspects of having to run around in a new place for the essentials.

Glasses fall in the same category, because they fix a perpetual problem for those who wear them. Therefore, whenever traveling, ensure to get an extra pair handy with you in case of an unforeseen event of cracked lenses or a broken frame.

Thanks to the internet, getting a pair of prescription glasses

is not that difficult even if you are in a hurry.

Ensure to Keep Them Clean

If you are traveling for leisure, then chances are that you will be exposed to outdoor conditions, these conditions might involve grains of sand, specks of snow, or droplets of dew.

In order to not lose your glasses to scratches and smudges that would not come off easily after a few hours, ensure to keep a lens cloth and lens cleaner handy with you, so that you can enjoy the sights without the effects of a blurry vision.

Do Not Wear Them in Places Where They Can Fall Off

We get it. The thrill to bungee jump off of a mountain or to dive in a swimming pool of your luxurious hotel is something that you want to enjoy with a perfect vision; however, you have to ensure that you do not have to part ways with your glasses so unceremoniously where they end up crashing in a deep valley or landing at the side of the pool.

Whenever delving into adventurous activities, make sure to take your glasses off to avoid unnecessary risks. Where to keep them in the middle of nowhere, you ask? Well, the next tip was born to answer that question.

By following these basic yet helpful suggestions, you can appreciate your trip to the fullest without coming back home sporting blurry vision.
