Flights dry your eyes out

Going on a plane this summer..?

If you are planning a journey by air this summer, here are some handy tips for lens wearers:

  • Bring some eye drops in your hand luggage and use them whenever your eyes feel dry during the flight.
  • The air conditioning on planes recirculates the air and can dry up the surface of your eyes. This can cause them to feel uncomfortable and irritated.
  • On long flights it is advisable to remove your contact lenses and wear your spectacles during the flight. This will help stop your eyes from feeling gritty and tired, leaving you ready to enjoy your holiday.
