Travelling with prosthetic eyes

If you have a prosthetic eye, traveling can sometimes feel like a daunting task. However, with a little extra planning and preparation, you can make your trip a success. Here are some tips to help you travel with confidence and ease:

  1. Pack your prosthetic eye securely. When packing your prosthetic eye, be sure to place it in a protective case to prevent damage. You may also want to pack it in a separate bag in case your luggage gets lost or stolen.

  2. Bring extra supplies. It's always a good idea to pack extra supplies, such as adhesive and cleaning solution, in case you need them while on your trip. Be sure to check the expiration dates on these items before packing them.

  3. Keep your prosthetic eye clean. It's important to keep your prosthetic eye clean while traveling to prevent infection. Be sure to clean it regularly and avoid exposing it to water, dust, and other potential contaminants.

  4. Be prepared for airport security. Airport security procedures can sometimes be a cause for concern for those with prosthetic eyes. However, most airports have special protocols in place to accommodate travelers with prosthetic devices. Be sure to inform the security officer about your prosthetic eye and follow their instructions.

  5. Stay hydrated. It's important to stay hydrated while traveling, especially if you're flying. This will help prevent dryness and discomfort in your eye socket. Be sure to drink plenty of water and avoid caffeine and alcohol, which can dehydrate you.

By following these simple tips, you can make your trip a success and enjoy your travels with confidence and ease.
