Circle lenses can be described as cosmetic lenses which encompass a generally wide and black ring on its posterior which widens the iris making your eyes appear bigger than they actually are. These lenses are referred to as big eye circle contacts in medical circles. Most people wear the non-prescription types which do not have any underlying effects on the user’s vision.
A large number of people wear these lenses for a number of reasons such as the following;
To enhance looks depending on special occasions such as Halloween and anime parties.
People would also like to add a bit of fun and magic to their looks.
Others simply wear them in order to imitate the appearance of their favourite characters such as manga, anime and Naruto.
These lenses differ from the normal lenses in that they make the eyes seem larger than they actually are. In addition they cover both the iris and the outer rim of the eyes which makes the iris seem bigger.
Before choosing the right circle lenses for your eyes you should consider certain factors:
Ensure that you understand the enlargement effect of the lenses. To do this you need to check both the diameter of the lens and the limbal ring in order to get the right effect.
Secondly the comfort level is very important for you. Ensure the lenses have a water content of between 50 to 60 % In order to allow oxygen permeability. However you should consult your doctor to establish the right moisture content for you.
Additionally you should ensure that the lenses blend well with the lenses. Choose a colour that is in tandem with the colour of the iris.
If you wish to achieve a natural look with these lenses go for those without the limbal ring and blend well with the color of the iris.
Finally the despite the circle lenses having the effect of making you look exquisite and being cheap, they have the disadvantages of having short lifespan with limited wearing time each day and also few dealers are authorized to sell them.
