These are eyewear travel packing list items that you may want to take on your trip. Picking the appropriate eyewear is very important. Obviously, if you cannot see well you won't enjoy your trip. Also, you want to protect your eyes, especially from the sun. You want proper UV protection. If you wear eye glasses you will obviously need to bring these on your trip. You may also want to bring a spare pair in case you break or lose your glasses or just for fashion reasons. Many people still wear contact lens. If you wear contact lens then you will most likely need to bring contact lenses on your trip. You probably also need to bring some extra pairs. Contact lens are relatively cheap these days and can even be bought online. Along with your contacts you will most likely need all the accessories such as a contact lens case, contact lens cleaning solution, saline solution, and/or multi-purpose solution. Along with your eye glasses, you will probably need some accessories. You will probably need a glasses case. Also, you may want to take a glasses neck holder so you can take off your glasses or sunglasses and let them hang from your neck when you aren't using them. Sun glasses are also very important to bring, especially if you are travelling to a sun destination. We know many people who are getting older now and are requiring cataract surgery. So, we highly recommend that you protect your eyes from the sun as much as possible. We even use clip-on polarized sunglasses on our prescription eye glasses as much as possible to protect our eyes! Also, as we get older we are finding that we require reading glasses to read comfortably. We never thought that this would happen to us, but it has!
It is always a good idea to bring a copy of your eye prescription with you on your travels in case you break or lose your eyewear. We usually bring our prescription so that we can buy cheaper eyewear in foreign countries. We recently bought a pair of prescription eye glasses that were less than half the price of what we were quoted at home. So, don't forget to pick out the appropriate eyewear to take on your trip and to put on your travel packing checklist.
