Get ready for the final stretch of the year with the right contact lenses

Thursday, 1 December 2022 by Vision Direct

2023 is just around the corner, and as we wrap up 2022, we may find ourselves a little more stressed. As we bounce between Christmas lunches, company dinners, seasonal getaways and trips to the mall for the best Secret Santa gift, nerves are bound to be a little on edge. Wearing contact lenses that make your life a little easier can be the key to ending the year without a hitch. Here are some tips on how to make this final stretch of the year as bearable as possible:

Purchase gifts in advance

Is it your turn to be Santa this year? If shopping for yourself can sometimes be overwhelming, shopping for others can be a bigger challenge. Entering crowded shops, searching for gifts in overheated stores and waiting in long queues can dry out your contact lenses. Ensuring that you wear contact lenses that offer maximum hydration and comfort for longer days will be a great way to make your holiday shopping evenings a breeze.

Plan a Christmas getaway

Whether you're planning an end-of-the-year getaway to the Christmas markets in Germany, Lapland or any other winter wonderland, we recommend that you wear daily contact lenses. This type of contact lens will give you much more freedom during your holiday, allowing you to set the pace of your days off. Forget about lugging bottles of multipurpose solution in your suitcase and having to follow a hygiene routine when you arrive at your hotel. With daily contact lenses, all you have to worry about is enjoying yourself.

Get ready for winter sports

At this time of the year, snow is just around the corner across the cooler climates. Perhaps you’re already thinking about heading to the mountains in the next few weeks to practise your favourite winter sport? If you want to dominate the slopes and still have maximum vision protection, remember to follow these tips when skiing with contact lenses. Keep your eyes protected from the sun with UV filter lenses and sunglasses, and practice your favourite sport without taking any risks.

Have you got your New Year's Eve dress?

There's no New Year's Eve without a New Year's Eve party and no New Year's Eve without a great look, so forget about foggy glasses that could smudge your make-up. Make the last night of the year the most fun thanks to fresh and healthy eyes. Dance until the sun comes up without any discomfort wearing breathable contact lenses that provide long-lasting hydration.

After a whole day working in front of the screen, what's next? Your company Christmas dinner. Maybe your eyes are already exhausted after a long day of work, and the last thing they need is dinner with your colleagues. By wearing contact lenses with a smooth surface design, you'll give your eyes maximum comfort by allowing friction-free blinking, and you'll end the day with the softness and moisture your eyes need.

Whether you’re mad about Christmas or not so keen on the holiday, one thing is clear: wearing the right contact lenses can make the season as bearable as possible.
