Prepping with bad eyesight
I won the genetic lottery when I inherited absolutely terrible eyesight from my Dad’s side of the family. I mean TERRIBLE. Without my contacts or glasses, I couldn’t drive, couldn’t do just about anything that wasn’t 1 foot in front of my face.
From a preparedness perspective, not being able to see because I lost / broke my glasses or ran out of contacts is kind of a big deal!
Wondering what others in the community with bad eyesight have done to ensure they aren’t stuck in a situation without the ability to see clearly?
Also from a get home / bug out bag perspective – what should I have in there for this? An extra set of eyeglasses? A backup pair of contacts & travel eye contact solution? Potentially both? I’m thinking what if a contact pops out while heading home on foot in a crisis? What if I fall and break my back up glasses?
Should I just save up and get my vision “permanently” corrected as part of my preparedness strategy? That’s kind of what I’m leading towards.
