contact lens reviewsWhile you are in a usual mode of a life - home, work, days off - and observe all doctor's instructions for caring of your contact lenses, using your lenses basically does not cause any problems. However, the situation radically changes, when you go away on holidays.

Spare contact lenses can save your holidays

Quite often patients realize importance of spare pair (and even two pairs) contact lenses only when they lose a contact lens, being away from home. It is especially true for those who wear conventional contact lenses.

So it is always best to carry an extra pair of contact lens, just in case yours are lost or damaged.
And if you wear daily disposable contacts, take the appropriate supply, plus a couple extra lenses.
