Winter Ladakh - Query

Postby Jinesh » Tue Jan 10, 2017 8:23 pm

Hello,

Am going to Ladakh on 29th Jan, 2017. It is going to be a 7 day trip with only 1 day on the Chadar and the remaining days in and around Leh.

I wear contact lenses, so wanted to know if wearing them in minus temperatures would be an issue?

Does the contact lens solution freeze in minus temperatures.

I tried googling this. But came across contrasting answers for the same.

Hoping to get an answer here.


Thanks !!!
Jinesh :)

Better talk to your eye consultant and tell him about freezing conditions. Though it should be an issue but I am sure there will be some precautions he can suggest and eye drops to keep eyes wet and protect from dryness.

I am currently putting up in USA where temperatures are around -13 to -19 on some days but I don't see people with contact lenses having trouble. I may be wrong though because I don't know if they use special solution to keep them dry. Best will to carry your glasses too and do talk to your doctor.
