New vitamin contact lenses claim to be the answer to dry, sore eyes

If you suffer from uncomfortable eyes then these new vitamin-enhanced contact lenses could solve your problems


Contact lenses are great - they don't fall down your nose or steam up when you're making a cup of tea. The downside is the dry, tired and scratchy feeling they can give your eyes by the end of the day.

If you've been stuck in front of a screen, or travelling, then the discomfort can get even worse.

But, eye care brand Waldo thinks its found a way to ease the pain for contact lens wearers with a brand new invention: vitamin-enhanced lenses ( £32 for a one-month supply ), which it claims is a first in the UK.

The individual lenses are stored in a pink saline liquid, which contains vitamins E, B6 and B12 - all of which will supposedly help alleviate swelling, discomfort and eye muscle fatigue.

The lenses also allow more oxygen to reach the eyes, which makes them less likely to feel sore by the end of the day, and means you might not have to rely on eye drops.

Though Waldo says the vitamin benefits are enough to make a big difference to contact wearers, the brand has also designed them to help prevent users from developing conditions like cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration (age-related burring or no vision).

How? The material of the Waldo lenses has been made with class two UV protection which blocks 70% UVA and 95% UVB.

Since macular changes can be caused by UVA exposure and cataracts by UVB - wearing these will give extra protection to your eyes.
