Contact lenses and airplanes
When flying on a plane, has anyone here checked their contact lenses with their baggage instead of their carry-on? Is it okay to do? I recently checked my lenses with my luggage on a recent flight. They seem okay, but thought I'd ask.
The Acuvu website says
"When traveling by air, try to keep your lenses, case, and solution in your carry-on luggage. DONíT pack your lenses in checked baggage Ė unless you want to risk your lenses landing in Cincinnati while you fly to Honolulu!"
That makes me think it's okay. If the worst thing that can happen is the luggage gets lost, it's not a big deal.
