A few weeks ago, I was sent a pair of circle lenses courtesy of Pinkicon. For those of you who aren’t familiar with circle lenses, they’re a type of contact lens that is super popular in Asia. They come in various colors and usually have an enlarging effect on the iris.
For this post I was sent a pair of lenses from the brand GEO in fire cat grey (you can find them here). I’ve never had the chance to wear circle lenses before this, though I’ve worn regular colored contact lenses in the past. In comparison to the normal “American” contact lenses, the circle lenses were much larger (mine were 15mm in diameter!). I really loved the grey color and thought they blended well with my eyes and they were quite comfortable as well. I could comfortably wear them all day without irritation.
Another difference between these lenses and regular contacts is that they last for 6 months with proper care, while regular contacts last around 2 weeks. So, while they seem expensive ranging from $20-$50 per pair, they do last a lot longer than normal contacts.
