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
