I would bring your regular glasses and sun glasses.

AnswerNo, but you won't be able to see for a while, anyway. AnswerI just got back from an eye exam. The optometrist told me to wear my contacts, but throw them away when I take them out for the night, and put on a new pair in the morning. He said sometimes the drops could contaminate the lenses and re-dilate my eyes in the morning.

I'm nearsighted, not sure if it's different for people that are farsighted.
