Before I start posting reviews on circle lenses, I thought I'd introduce them to people who don't really know what circle lenses are about. Circle lenses are commonly known as "big eye" contact lenses because when placed in the eye, they make the iris appear larger in size. Originating in South Korea, these lenses are commonly worn by females, although can be worn by males as well. A look commonly associated with circle lenses is the Ulzzang look, which is characterized by large eyes, small noses, and fair skin. Although circle lenses aren't sold in western stores, they are very very popular in online stores, forums and blogs as well!
The diameter of the lens of the average circle lens is 14 mm , which is 2 mm longer than the average iris diameter. The colors range from very very natural looking to very extreme colors, such as lenses used for cosplaying, etc. Some popular brands are GEO , Dueba, G&G, EOS, NEO and many many more.
* When purchasing, one must be very very careful as there are many sellers who sell fake GEO lenses online and there may not be anyway to tell. These fake lenses will be harmful to your eyes so one must be very careful when it comes to ordering online ! I will be telling you what to look out for in another post !
