Are you a prepper? Do you wear glasses? Then this article is for you!
I’ve been wearing glasses since I was a toddler. I have poor vision without glasses, though I can still kinda make out shapes, just not details, everything is blurry. For some, they may only need glasses when they read or may only need them when they drive. Or maybe need them simply because they’re getting older.
Let me tell you a quick tale of my brother. Long, long ago, he was on a solo camping trip. As he was leaving, he was crossing a creek and all of a sudden, BLAM, there goes his glasses into the creek. He looked for them for a bit, but couldn’t find them, no doubt was swept away by the water. Luckily, he had cell service and he was able to call my friend who had a car (I didn’t at the time) who could get him. He’s like me, his vision is blurry but can make out general shapes and could get to where he needed to go to meet us. We met him off the side of a road and picked him up.
That was a wake-up call to me that vision is essential, especially when you’re galavanting out in the woods.
BONUS: Take a multivitamin. There are a lot of studies that are coming out that taking a regular multivitamin can help keep our eyes strong.
BONUS #2: If you plan to carry contacts with you in your kits, make sure you have plenty of solution and a backup pair of contacts in all of your kits, along with the contacts container.
BONUS #3: To prevent your glasses from falling off your face even more than just keeping the screws tight, you could get something like a glasses strap. They aren’t nerdy, they may just very well save your sight!
Do everything you can now to keep your eyes healthy and to stay prepared to keep your sight during an emergency or disaster.

Love this! Each time I get new glasses, I put my old pair in my emergency bag. Then I take out the oldest ones and donate them in the Lions Club box at our optometrist’s office. I do invest in both regular and sunglasses, so I always have backups for indoors and out. And repair kits everywhere – especially in the truck console. I hate how Murphy’s Law will make you lose a screw in the floorboards!
Good advice and I agree with all of it. I’ve also worn glasses since I was in grade school. I find that my eyesight has actually gotten better (slightly) since I stopped wearing the glasses for everything.
