Before y’all start screaming at me that they are illegal and could make me go blind… I have to say that I have a few comments about the controversy.
I’ve been wearing contacts since I was 17 years old. I have used many types of contacts from daily wear to colored contacts to disposable ones. So I have nearly two decades of experience with contacts.
That said, circle lenses come from Korea and Japan. The circle lenses are thicker than disposable ones and some daily wear ones. Also they cover more eye surface. So if you wear them improperly, then potentially you can deprive the eye of oxygen. You can say that about many contact lenses that are FDA approved. Unless the lens states that it’s oxygen permeable, then you run that risk.
You have to follow the basic rules of contact lens usage:
Clean hands = clean lenses
Always inspect the lenses for tears/defects
Make sure the lenses is not inside out
Have rewetting drops handy at all times
Never wear contacts for more than 6 – 8 hours on a daily basis (occasionally,10 – 12 hours)
Use eye cosmetics that are safe for contact lens wearers.
If your eyes begin to hurt, become red, or you see halo or starbursts: remove your lenses immediately and go see your optometrist.
now on to the review. I got these because I wanted to get dolled up for NY Comic-Con/Anime Festival coming up next month.
