Hurricane Preparedness and Your Eyes

Essential Tips from Caruso Eye Care

Hurricane Preparedness Kit

As we approach hurricane season in beautiful Palm Beach, Florida, it’s essential to ensure you and your family are prepared for any storm that may come our way. At Caruso Eye Care, we understand the importance of holistic health, which includes taking special care of your eyes during emergencies.

Preparing Your Hurricane Kit for Eye Care

When assembling your hurricane preparedness kit, it’s easy to focus on the basics like water, food, and batteries. However, your eye health is just as crucial. Here are some essentials to include:

  • Extra Contacts for a Minimum of 2 Weeks: Ensure you have an adequate supply of contact lenses. Disasters can disrupt supply chains, making it difficult to replace them quickly.

  • Backup Glasses: In case you lose or damage your contact lenses, having a pair of backup glasses is a lifesaver. Make sure they are up-to-date with your current prescription.

  • Contact Lens Solution and Case: Proper hygiene is essential to prevent infections. Pack enough contact lens solution and a clean case to maintain your routine.

  • Contact Lens and Glasses Prescription: Keep a copy of your prescription in your emergency kit. This will be helpful if you need to replace your eyewear urgently.

  • Protective Eyewear: Flying debris during a hurricane can pose a significant risk to your eyes. Wear protective eyewear if you need to go outside during or after the storm.


Avoid Rubbing Your Eyes: Dust and allergens stirred up by the storm can irritate your eyes. Wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your eyes to prevent infections.

Stay Hydrated: Proper hydration is crucial for overall health, including eye health. Dehydration can lead to dry eyes, so drink plenty of water.
