Have you ever noticed girls with big dolly type eyes? Finally, the mystery behind those bright and colorful eyes is finally revealed. There is an extremely popular trend where girls are wearing color contact lenses called, “Circle Lenses,” to make their eyes appear larger. Circle lenses, also known as “big-eye” lenses, are special contact lenses that have boomed in popularity especially among young teenage girls in Korea, Japan and Taiwan.
The difference between these lenses and normal color lenses is that they are tinted not only in areas within the iris of the eye, but also have a dark outer ring tinted outside the iris of the eye. This creates a larger iris, thus making the eye appear larger.
Although Circle lenses have already become the new trend in most of Asia, they are still an emerging trend in North America of their scarcity in retail stores and online. However, if you look long and hard, you will be able to find a few retailers online. The most popular brand is by Geo Medical Co., Inc. which complies with CE 0434, ISO 13485 and KFDA safety standards.
It should be noted however that these lenses are not for everyone. If you are that person who is just looking for a subtle color change in their eyes, maybe normal color lenses are better suited for you. If you want bigger and more colorful eyes, plus a little more attention in the crowd you are with, maybe you should give Circle Lenses a try.
