Travel Tips

When you set out to see the world, take good care of the eyes doing the seeing for you.

On the go? Here are a few tips to help keep your eyes comfortable and healthy while traveling:

  • Get your lenses ready. Before you travel, clean and disinfect your contact lenses properly with a multi-purpose solution like renu®. Remember, saline solution does not disinfect lenses!
  • Keep your body and eyes hydrated by drinking plenty of water before you go, as well as while you’re on the move.
  • Keep multi-purpose solution, rewetting drops and a clean contact lens case handy while you’re traveling. We offer renu® fresh™ multi-purpose solution in a bottle size that’s under the 3oz TSA carry-on limit. You can pack a 2oz bottle of renu solution along with a .72oz bottle of ReNu MultiPlus® lubricating and rewetting drops in a clear, quart size, zip-top plastic bag in your carry-on luggage.
  • If your eyes start to feel dry or uncomfortable, moisturize your contact lenses while wearing them with ReNu MultiPlus® lubricating and rewetting drops. If they continue to feel uncomfortable, take your contact lenses out and put them in your contact lens case along with multi-purpose solution.

Your eye care professional can help determine which solution is best for you. Schedule an eye exam annually and follow their directions for the best contact lens wearing experience.
