When I was younger and I went on holiday I didn’t worry too much about how much I was wearing my lenses or my glasses, and as I only really had to worry about getting up and sleeping/reading a book by the pool I didn’t need to worry about seeing anything! However this all changed when I had the children and they started running about round the pool, then it was essential to be able to see. I mean you can’t just wing it when you have kids and water and the sea or the pool can you? It’s important to be able to see at all times!
I have glasses, I have sunglasses and I even have prescription sunglasses, but I am most comfortable in my lenses. I have my contact lenses on repeat order and get 3 months in advance but what usually happens is that just before I am about to go away I realise I am low on lenses and need new ones. I have also, once, been in the horrific situation of getting on holiday and realising that I didn’t have my lenses with me! Argh!
What I was thrilled to find out recently was that if I am on holiday and I have forgotten my lenses, or I’ve run out. I can actually order them online from Vision Direct and if I am in a European destination they could reach me in 2-3 days. They will actually ship to Canada and the US too but the speed of the European delivery service really shocked me, I mean they would arrive in a useful amount of time!
My next thought was that they might be able to get them to where I was but it would be horrifically expensive. Not so, apparently worldwide delivery starts from just £4.98! Who knew!
