0012-704Contact lenses can enhance your holiday, enabling you to wear sunglasses, dive masks or virtual reality headsets with ease. On the other hand. a red eye or sore eye can really take the shine off your trip and make life quite difficult. Dr Reece Hall from Wellington's Bowen Eye Clinic asked for our input on how to eliminate contact lens problems while travelling and has created a handy document which you can  download here. Travelling with Contact Lenses PDF .

 As you'll see, single use contact lenses ( also called 1 day lenses) work really well on holiday and most prescriptions are available in 1 day lenses now. And yes, that does include multifocals and lenses for astigmatism. If you'd like to be refitted with one day lenses, contact us.

In addition, we can provide all the  optical components you might need for your holiday - eye drops, travel size contact lens solutions, sunglasses and we can even email you a copy of your glasses and contact lens prescription
