Daily disposable edible contact lenses

I wear daily disposable contact lenses and at the end of the day, it would be really convenient if I could take them out and pop them in my mouth, knowing I'm getting a healthy vitamin boost.

Think of the landfill savings. I'm sure it's possible and you could even flavour them.

       Well, if they were hygroscopic, they'd at least water your eyes enough to make you think twice before eating them -- like onions.

       I swallowed one one time. Don't ask.

       My Graddaughter ate one of her mother's contacts-- eighty bucks later...! It would be better it they were made to taste nasty.

       I don't know that I would want to put something in my mouth that had been in my eye... i mean, it's all gooey and there's that crust in the corners in the morning. Even thinking about it, I have to suppress the gag reflex

       The color could indicate the flavor. Like skittles.

       I once slept over at a friend's and forgot to bring solution for my disposibles. I put my contacts in two glasses of water overnight. In the morning she was thirsty and drank one of them. She is still alive, so I believe they technically are edible. Plus, if you don't clean them that often they are like a protein supplement.

       Less tasty than molluscs, but equally less likely to cause allergic reactions. Nutition : minimal In short : another example of the pointlessness of nouvelle cuisine.
