The daily contact lenses are designed for comfort and optimum moisture. The brand has partnered with an internationally recognised and certified supplier to create lenses that have a tapered smooth edge, enabling low-foreign body sensation when blinking. What’s more, the lenses themselves are made up of 58% water which allow wearers to enjoy maximum moisture and comfort all day long thanks to Multilayer Moisturising Hyaluronic Acid agents. Waldo lenses also offer a Class 2 classification which blocks 70% UVA and 95% UVB rays. The aspheric lens design, which mimics the design of the eye’s cornea, mean the lenses also offer outstanding HD vision. Waldo lenses have a DK/t of 25 (oxygen transmissibility (DK/t) of 21 is needed in order to prevent any ocular changes to the eyes), so wearers can rest assured they are fully protected.

Waldo Original is available for just £12 (30 lenses), making them significantly cheaper than other brands of the same high quality. Meanwhile, Waldo Vitamin lenses available for £16 per box (30 lenses). Waldo Vitamin lenses are stored in a patented saline solution formula which boasts Vitamin B6, B12, E, meaning nutrients can reach the eye to leave them feeling refreshed and rejuvenated throughout the day.

With registered opticians in house and a customer service team waiting on hand, Waldo doesn’t add to your to-do lists but ticks things off. Eye-care should be a fun and positive experience, not a chore. Lenses suit prescriptions from -12.00 to +4.00 and are delivered throughout the UK.

Waldo Contact Lenses. Breaking the law and making misleading claims about the Oxygen transmission of their lenses

By Concerned

Waldo contact lenses claim on their website:

“An oxygen transmissibility (DK/t) of 21 is needed in order to prevent any ocular changes to the eyes. Waldo lenses have a DK/t of 25, ensuring Waldo wearers are fully protected.” Despite their claims, do not provide sufficient Oxygen to the cornea.

The Holden-Mertz criteria in 1984 for safe every day wear demonstrated an average Oxygen transmissibility Dk/t of >24 was required for safe daily wear. Waldo’s published Dk/t is 25, but that is for the centre of a -3.00 lens, when calculated average Dk/t over the whole of a -3.00 lens or a higher prescription (Waldo go up to -12.00), this is then below the Holden-Mertz criteria for safe wear.

More recently Papas revealed to a Dk/t of over 125 is required to reduce limbal redness (due to lack of oxygen). Waldo’s lenses are therefore well below this level.

Optometrists and academics are all in agreement that modern Silicone Hydrogel lenses, not hydrogels like Waldo lenses are the first choice lens design due to their significantly higher oxygen transmission.
Waldo’s lens design is from the mid 1990s. Would you rather wear a modern, safe silicone hydrogel lens which has been fitted and assessed by a trained clinician, or a Waldo lens which has not been assessed on your eye and is an outdated and less safe lens design.

By failing to require a valid contact lens specification to supply their contact lenses, Waldo are also breaking the law (section 25 of the Opticians Act).
They are being reported to the General Optical Council (Governing body for Opticians) and to the Advertising Standards Authority for making misleading claims about the Oxygen transmission of their lenses.
