Travelling With Clear Vision

We all have those moments stressing about what we need to bring in our luggage, and what might be better left at home. When travelling for longer periods of time, myopic travellers have a few extra things to consider than those who are not. If you are myopic, many of you would have to bring:

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a common eye condition that causes blurred vision. The condition can be hereditary and is usually already present since birth. It can also increase or decrease over time. It commonly occurs together with other vision conditions such as nearsightedness (myopia) and farsightedness (hyperopia).

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is long-sightedness caused by loss of elasticity of the lens of the eye,
occurring usually in middle and old age. In Chinese, it is called ‘lao hua yan’.
Your eyes slowly lose the ability to see things clearly up close. Many people start to
notice they have presbyopia after age 40.
