Dear Christine,

We want to keep you updated on some information that you may need to know.

Vision Changes…and so do Airport Security Rules.

As you’ve probably heard, new security rules are being enforced at airports for everyone’s safety. Many liquids have been banned from carry–on bags. As a result, many travelers with contact lenses are being affected since only small bottles of rewetting and cleaning solutions are still allowed.*

However, there is good news for contact lens wearers!

As an alternative to carrying solutions, you can consider wearing contact lenses that can be worn for one day and then thrown away. There’s no lens care, cases, or solutions required.

To enjoy the no-hassle, healthiest way to wear contact lenses, you can talk to your eye care professional about 1•DAY ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses. Click here for a FREE** Trial Pair Certificate.

Have a comfortable trip!

Travel Tips

  • Currently, you are allowed to carry up to 4 oz. of eye drops with you. Volumes greater than 4 oz. are only permitted in your checked baggage.*
  • Place your lens case and solution(s) in a zip–lock bag to avoid leaks in pressurized environments.
  • For a truly comfortable trip, consider applying a fresh pair of lenses when you reach your destination.
