Your Contact Lens Prescription
Do I need a prescription to place an order?
You don’t need to send a prescription to Waldo when you place an order, however we do encourage you to upload your prescription as we may need to verify it. You can do this here
Can I purchase contact lenses with my glasses prescription?
No! Since contact lenses sit on the eye, your lens prescription is different from your glasses prescription. As a result, when you order our lenses you must have a current contact lens prescription which specifies the power and parameters of the lenses.
What should I do if my prescription changes?
You can update your prescription by logging into your online account on our Waldo website. If you have trouble with this, feel free to email us a copy of your prescription using firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be able to help!
Can Waldo give me a prescription?
We can’t give you a prescription at Waldo but we can give you some great optical advice courtesy of our in-house optician, Anita. Remember that before ordering, you will need to visit your local optician to obtain an up-to-date lens prescription.
How old must I be to order and wear Waldo contact lenses?
You must be aged 16 and over. If you are under 16, you need to see your optician to be able to order lenses.
Waldo Daily Contact Lenses
What are your lenses made of?
Our lenses are made of 42% etafilcon A and 58% water. Waldo lenses are made of hydrogel which has a higher water content and means many people find them to be a soft lens in comparison to other materials.
Do the lenses have UV filters?
Yes! Waldo lenses help protect your eyes against the transmission of harmful UV radiation to the cornea and into eye. Our lenses have a Class 2 classification which means they block 70% UVA and 95% UVB rays. However, you should never treat your lenses as a substitute for UV absorbing eyewear like sunglasses, which provide full coverage of the eyes and surrounding areas.
What is the base curve and diameter of Waldo lenses?
Our base curve is 8.5mm and our diameter is 14.2mm.
Why does Waldo sell lenses with a single base curve and diameter?
Waldo lenses have a base curve of 8.5mm, which is suitable for most contact lens wearers. As we grow, we will continue to expand our range further.

We don’t currently offer multifocal lenses, however we’re working on these! If you would like to be notified as soon as we have multifocal lenses please complete this form
Do you sell bi-weekly or monthly lenses?
We only sell daily lenses. We prioritise our customers eye health and according to our in-house optician, daily lenses are the most hygenic contact lenses to wear.
Can I use eye-drops with my Waldo lenses?
You are able to use eye drops while wearing your Waldo lenses, just make sure that the eye drops you’re using are compatible with contact lenses.
Can I clean my Waldo lenses with water or contact lens solution to store them?
We supply daily lenses, so Waldo lenses should not be worn more than once. Please dispose of your lenses after each wear.
Where are your lenses made?
Our lenses are manufactured by Pegavision, based in Taiwan.
Do you offer a free trial for Waldo Vitamin, as well as Waldo Original?

Are contacts difficult to insert and remove?
We appreciate that inserting and removing your lenses may take a little practice, so our lenses come complete with a guide containing instructions on how to insert and remove contacts properly. If you’re inserting your lenses for the first time and would like to chat to somebody hands-free, give our in-house optician a call on 020 3176 8063 and she’ll talk you through it. Our in-house optician is available from Monday to Wednesday, 9am-5pm.
Will it hurt when I put the contact lens on my eye for the first time?
Some wearers might feel uncomfortable inserting contact lenses for the first time, however most people are surprised with the level of comfort that they can provide. Initial fittings by professional eye care specialists should minimize or eliminate any problems associated with new lenses. If this is your first time wearing daily contacts, we ask that you visit your local optician to obtain an up-to-date prescription before ordering from us.
Can I swim with my contact lenses in?
We advise you not to swim whilst wearing your contact lenses. Water contains bacteria that has the potential to contaminate your lenses and cause infection. If you do swim whilst wearing the lenses, we recommend you remove them as soon as possible afterwards to reduce the risk of infection.
Can I wear my contacts in the shower or bath, or in a sauna or steam room?
We recommend removing your lenses before taking a shower, getting in the bathtub or entering a sauna or steam room. Tap water and sweat contain bacteria so they should never come into contact with your lenses, while soaps and other chemicals in your shower products can cause irritation to your eyes.
Can I wear contact lenses when playing sports?
Absolutely. Contact lenses are a fantastic option for people who enjoy playing sports. Forget steamy glasses and broken frames, Waldo lenses will stick with you until the final whistle.
