See the world in HD - travelling with glasses

Now that you have a lovely new pair of specs, it’s time to get out there and see the world for what it really is – a place of absolute wonder and beauty! While glasses wearers don’t generally have any more trouble travelling than our perfectly-sighted friends, there are a few things you’ll need to remember in order to keep your glasses safe; after all, if you don’t, you won’t be seeing anything very well!


Double up

Take an extra pair. This is a no-brainer, really (depending on where you’re travelling to), as you can’t expect to always find a convenient location to repair them or buy another pair if yours are damaged or lost.

Bring another case

Keep one in your bag and one in the car, or your hotel room. The spare will ensure that you’ll almost always have a safe place to store your glasses when you need to take them off, even if you are out and about but accidentally left your glasses case in your accommodation room.

Put them away

Similar to the above tip, whenever you take your glasses off your face, put them directly into your glasses case. For most of us, it’s convenient to store our glasses on our head or in our shirt pocket, but doing so will increase your chances of losing them dramatically.

Leave them in your suitcase

Most of us have accidentally left something in a hotel room, and it can take weeks to get the item back – if at all. So you don’t want this to happen to your precious glasses, do you? Even if they are a wonderfully priced pair of Frankie Dean’s! The solution? Whenever you take your glasses off, get into the habit of storing them in their case, within (or right next to) your suitcase. This way, you’ll never leave them behind.

Take them on the plane

Even if you don’t need your glasses during your flight, it’s a good idea to store them in your carry on luggage. This is handy if you suddenly realise you do need them mid-flight, but it will also keep them safe from damage during transit.

Chain them up

Even though we know you’re going to follow our advice and pop your glasses into their case after you’ve used them (
