Inwith At CES 2022
technology surrounding an eye


– Jonathan Swift


Imagine a patented technology that enables computer circuitry to be embedded into name-brand soft contact lenses like those already worn by millions of people. This makes our platform the ultimate discrete wearable XR technology.


This name brand contact lens by Bausch & Lomb has InWith’s XR Platform inside. This will enable millions of people to experience new vision technologies in a familiar contact lens.


Our patented platform enables a multiverse of applications within a single contact lens, from XR to tunable focus, to Biosensors, these are just a few examples.
