Waldo Contacts VS Hubble Contacts

Updated: Nov 19, 2021



I just got my eye exam and I was going to buy the contacts my Optometrist recommended. So what did I do? I used Google for a deal. I ran across two companies who were offering a trial for their daily lenses. I am not a fan of daily lenses but as I've gotten older my eyes have been more dry and my contacts don't seem to do well if I wear them more than two days, no matter what kind I get.


*Please note I don't have any special eye needs such as Toric lenses, I am unsure pricing or any details for these needs. My prescription is -2.50 in each eye.


Trial Details


Waldo

www.hiwaldo.com



You get 10 daily pairs of contacts for a total including shipping for $2.95.


If I choose to continue with Waldo, pricing breaks down as follows for Daily Lenses:

Monthly $39.00. I assume it is 30 pairs of contacts because the box has 10 each.

Quarterly $108.00 ($117.00 originally for a 7% savings)

Bi-Annual $204.00 ($234.00 originally for a 12% savings)


I do not know if there is any additional fees such as shipping as I am still in the trial term.

I can change the dates of when it will ship but the frequency is less flexible. If I choose with a monthly plan that I don't wear contacts daily, it switches it from every 4 weeks to 6 weeks.


I had to tell them when ordering who my Optometrist was. It took a total of 7 days from time ordered to receive my order.


If you ordered the Monthly pack, it breaks down to $1.30 a day with as little as $1.14 a day if you sign up for the Bi-Annual to get the best discount.


Hubble

www.hubblecontacts.com



You get 15 daily pairs of contacts for a total including shipping for $1.00.


If I choose to continue with Hubble, pricing breaks down as follows:

$36 for a monthly amount of contacts plus $3 shipping and handling. I am unsure if that is 28 or 30 pairs of contacts as that is not exactly clear. Since the boxes I got where 15 each box, I am assuming it's 30 pairs.


You are able to skip delivery dates and they are slightly more flexible with 14, 28, 42, 56 day terms between deliveries. It only looks like you'll get the assumed 30 pairs no matter the time frame between deliveries.

Comfort


Waldo & Hubble. They are both very comfortable, it's like I am not wearing anything at all except the fact that I can see. I cannot tell the difference between either brand.




I cancelled both my subscriptions after a few months. I didn't need that many contacts. Both companies require you to call to cancel. Waiting time for each was less than a minute.


Overall, which will I choose. No clue. I think maybe I will stock up on both. I didn't like one over the other for any reason. So far my experience with both is the same.


Thank you for reading.
