Choosing the Right Pair of Glasses for Your Holiday

Going on holiday means a lot of preparation, from booking travel and accommodation, arranging activities and remembering to pack everything you need. If you want to make the most of your time away and look stylish, it’s important to find the right glasses to take with you.

Something versatile

If you’re trying to travel light and reduce how much you spend, a new pair of Ray-Ban’s could be a good investment. Their stylish frames go with most looks and you can choose from your favourite colours to find the pair which suit you best. The lenses are also available for wearers who have trouble seeing long distances, or in multifocal for both long and short distances, those who need glasses for reading, or fashion-conscious wearers without a prescription.

Consider the weather

If you’re travelling somewhere warm, you can find a stylish pair of sunglasses, with or without a prescription.

If the weather is going to be more uncertain, wraparound glasses offer wind protection. This is great if you’re spending a lot of time on outdoor activities such as cycling, horse riding or sailing.

This lets you make the most of your holiday without worrying about the wind making your eyes sore, or having your vision obscured when it’s crucial to see what you’re doing and observe your surroundings.

Matching your outfits

The good thing about glasses is most styles will look great with your outfit, whether you’re dressed for the beach, attending a sporting event or exploring the local area.

If you like to have a choice of glasses, you could buy several cheaper pairs, besides your main pair. This lets you choose a style depending on your mood, and can protect your main pair if you’re taking part in activities where they could get lost or broken.


If you are worried about breaking your glasses on holiday, opt for a more durable pair. Thinner frames may be lighter but can break easier depending on the materials they are made from. Stainless steel frames can be more durable. So can titanium frames, though these tend to be more expensive. It’s important to think about the durability of your lenses too. Polycarbonate or trivex lenses are the best and most widely available options if you’re hoping to reduce the risk of damaging them.


If you’re only packing one pair of glasses, it’s important to make sure they’re comfortable before you leave. If you’re buying a new pair, wear them for at least a few days before your holiday. This gives you enough time to discover any discomfort they might cause. You don’t want to be away from home with only one pair of glasses, which are uncomfortable to wear.

Getting the right pair of glasses for your holiday lets you get on with everything you planned to do, without having to worry about your glasses. They’ll go with most outfits and help you look and feel stylish while getting the most out of your holiday.
