Air Travel With An Artificial Eye

Many people find it uncomfortable travelling by plane as their eyes get very dry in the air-conditioning.

This effect is even worse if you happen to have an eye prosthesis.

We’ve had lots of great feedback about Ocu-Glide.

This is a silicon based eye drop which is totally inorganic. This means that it doesn’t have a useby date – or to put it simply, it doesn’t go off.

You only need a little drop of Ocu-Glide to stop the prosthesis from drying out. It doesn’t need to be reapplied for several hours.

This can make a big difference to your comfort level when travelling.

Sadly, you can’t use it in your real eye – you’ll have to get other eye drops for that.

Other useful tips include;
– Avoid alcohol.
– Drink lots of water.
– Wear the little sleep masks over your eyes.

Ocu-Glide isn’t widely available. You can buy it over the internet or from some Ocularists.

Here is a link to their website if you would like to find out more: Ocu-Glide

Bon Voyage!

    this has been a very helpful read about Ocu-glide.
    Many thanks for this website.
    I have had many uncomfortable air journeys so will be keen to try it out. My next plan had been to remove prothesis and pad the eye – for the entire journey. Great news. janet K

  3. I have heard a lot about artificial eyes recently and my father has been looking into getting one since he lost his left eye a few years back. It’s very interesting that you had mentioned that it can be important to stay fully hydrated when flying to avoid the eyes getting too dry. My father doesn’t travel often but if he decides to get an artificial eye it might be helpful for him to know.

    Not long after I started riding again, I went on a rally and had quite a bit of trouble piloting the GSX home in the dark. It was dead scary but I got there in the end. One advantage of losing an eye was that i got to wear a black leather eye patch for quite a while. Weirdly enough it made women take more of an interest in me.
