Vitamin-enhanced contact lenses launched

Waldo has released contact lenses that are designed to fight dry eye by replenishing tears and boosting comfort

Waldo lenses

An online eye care start-up has released contact lenses that are packaged in a saline solution containing vitamins E, B6 and B12.

Waldo states that the contact lenses remove the hassle of taking supplementary vitamin eye drops.

Waldo in-house optician, Anita Mistry, highlighted that the lenses provide a hydrated feeling.

“Our Waldo vitamin lenses help dry and tired eyes feel refreshed on insertion,” she added.

The contact lenses will cost £32 for a one-month supply and can be delivered anywhere in the UK.

Waldo founder, Ashleigh Hinde, said: “While special contacts for dry eyes are available on the market, they are not supported by a solution containing the additive vitamins which relieves the strain on eyes. We wanted to make these lenses universally accessible at an affordable price point and we’re proud to be bringing such a unique product to the market.”
