Contact Lens Fluid on carry-on

I'm going to Italy in a week. I read, somewhere in my past - that contact lens fluid was one of the only fluids that you could carry on that could be more than 3 oz.

Anyone know anything about this? We're flying Delta.

Yes that is true--but it's a TSA rule, so the airline doesn't matter. I have been told to put it (and any liquid meds) in a second quart bag.

It's allowed as I understand the rules. However, what really matters is how the TSA agent you have to deal with understands the rules.

Yes, contact lens solution can be carried in hand baggage in sizes larger than the 3.3 oz limit that applies to other things. See http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtrav...rial_1059.shtm
If you are worried, print out the pdf of the TSA memo and carry it with you.

Don't know what brand you use, but some come in 2oz travel size. For example, I use Clear Care, and they come in 2oz x 2. Good enough for 2 weeks.

Saline solution. But I think it's OK as pr the link Seamus gave me above. IT's under "Medical Conditions" which I guess can mean wearing of contact lenses too?
