The most prevalent problem associated with wearing contact lenses while flying is the discomfort associated with dry eyes. The relatively low humidity associated with the pressurized cabin of an airplane can make eyes feel dryer than usual. Using rewetting eye drops prior to the flight and as needed during the flight can help to prevent the eyes from becoming dry and uncomfortable during the flight. Contact lens wearers should also avoid sleeping during their flight because this can worsen the dry eyes condition. Carrying eye glasses and a storage case and solution is also recommended in case the dry eyes become too uncomfortable.
