Tip #1 - Carry a Spare
Spare glasses belong on your list of holiday things. Countless holidays have been ruined by lost or broken glasses.
You're in an environment that is not an the ordinary. Don't be surprised if your glasses went for a walk - or when accidents happen.
Carry a spare pair with you.
Tip #2 - Prescription
If you are far away from your home, its a good idea to have an up-to-date prescription with you. It's the second best thing to carrying a spare set of glasses.
You can head to the local optometrist in the area and get another pair of glasses made up without an eye exam - saving you time. Be wary that optometrist maybe closed over a holiday period and the glasses may take time to be made up.
Tip #3 - Contact Lenses wearers: Take you Glasses
If you intent to wear contact lenses the entire time on holiday, take you glasses with you.
It's normally a good idea to give you eyes a break from contact lens wear. In addition to this, at the unfortunate instance you eyes get infected, you must cease wearing your contact lenses (and see an eye care professional) until your treatment is completed.
Tip #4 - Cleaning Cloth and Spray
You glasses will get dirty during your stay-away. Using tissues or your garment to clean your glasses will surely damage your lenses.
It will be a good idea to pack a clean microfibre cloth and lens spray.
Tip #5 - Sunglasses
