Q: What are "circle lenses"?

A: Circle lenses are cosmetic contact lenses that have a black ring meant to enlarge the appearance of the iris. Originally from Korea, these lenses were made popular by ulzzangs ("best face" celebrities) and pop stars. IE, Kim Namji is very famous for wearing circle lenses, as are most Chinese/Taiwanese "Pretty Girls" (Mei Nur). They give the appearance of clear, doll-like eyes and are available primarily to the Asian market.

Q: What is the difference between colored and circle lenses?

A: Both are available in a variety of colors and designs as cosmetic lenses, but regular colored lenses do not have a black ring around the outer edge of the iris. They are meant to change the color of your eyes. Circle lenses are means to make your eyes appear larger with their notable black ring.

Q: Is circle lens safe to wear?

A: As it was made of material approved by FDA and manufactured with the advanced sandwiched method, the colorant do not come into contact with eyes and will not permeated. Considering how many cosmetic contact lenses are sold and the few complaints we hear they are surprisingly safe if proper instructions are complied with. That means washing the hands before handling the contact lens, not sharing your contact lens with others, disinfecting the contact lens on a regular basis, using the proper contact lens solutions and not wearing the contact lens any longer than your doctor has recommended.

A: Tear lenses are lenses that have slit designs around them. I chose these because as the name states, they give a teary like appearance. The teariness ultimately gives you a little depth and a glossy, doll-eyed look.

Q: Can circle lenses be prescribed?

A: Yes, there are degree 0.0 to 6.0 (0.50 steps) available. If you have 20/20 vision, you can buy non-prescription/plano/0.00 lenses. If you wear glasses or are unsure of your vision stats, have an eye exam with your local optometrist.

Q: Can people with astigmatism wear circle lenses?

A: This depends on the brand and seller. For example, G&G DOES make circle lenses for astigmatism, BUT these are not the same as their circle lenses or cosmetic circle lenses. Research the brand to find out the best choice so you don't order the wrong kind.
However, if your astigmatism is over 150, it is really RECOMMENDED to NOT wear circle lenses. Are you going to lose your vision just for beauty? You really shouldn't wear them if your astigmatism is over 150.

Q: Can I use an eyeglass prescription to order a contact lens?

A: Not really because the eyeglass and contact lens specifications are not the same. Also, you need to be evaluated and fitted for the contact lens and given instructions on the care and handling of the contact lens so you don't wear them out prematurely. If you currently wear glasses you should go back to your doctor and ask to be fitted for a contact lens as well. Don't forget to ask for a copy of your contact lens specifications.
