Didn't see one in the archive.
I recently bought some honeycolor lenses and they were so comfortable all day, I was afraid I'd fall asleep with them in!
Now that I've opened them, how often should I be changing the contact solution to keep them good between conventions and events?
They say to change with every wear, but I've been wearing contacts for over a decade now with no issues, and I only change my solution when I see shit floating around in it, or if the lenses feel like they just need fresh solution. You can feel when your solution is dirty, even if it looks clean.
When should you throw out circle lenses, especially if they've been hardly worn? I know rule of thumb is 8 months for open pairs.
Also, anyone know a reliable shop that sells G&G A21 brown lenses? Bonus points if they're in Canada. I used to order with Kiwiberry1 but they've closed down.
I've been wearing circle lenses for 3 years now, but I've bought some lens recently that gave me some weird problem. When I put them on, one goes up and the other down, I seem fucking cockeyed. Even if I quit them an put on the oppossite eye; what the fuck is happening?
>Now that I've opened them, how often should I be changing the contact solution to keep them good between conventions and events?
I'm curious about the same anon I usually do it every 30 days of not wearing and always after every wear.
I'd say weekly. Even with the lids closed you will get some evaporation of the liquid in your contact solution which changes the concentration of the stuff in it and can irritate your eyes, plus even with the best hygiene ever you'll have some bacteria in there so it's best to keep the solution fresh each week to avoid letting them multiply in a stagnant pool of fluid
I have that issue too and I'm pretty sure it's because the base curve isn't the same as my eye. I usually have less issues of that happening with larger diameters but I always have that issue with smaller diameters.
>When should you throw out circle lenses, especially if they've been hardly worn?
This/ I change out my solution every week for lenses I've had for about a year now (opened) and only wore twice for maybe an hour total.
Your base curve is often different with different materials and diameters - mine is 8.5 in my daily lenses which are a different material but same diameter to the monthly ones I previously tried with a base curve of 8.7 (both checked on my eyes for fit by my optometrist). I asked her about this and she said it was related to the different material and thickness - obviously the dailies are thinner and softer. She also mentioned larger diameter lenses can change the base curve, something like 0.1mm of base curve for every 0.5mm of diameter
Can anyone give me recommendations on lenses for Mami and Madoka? If this question isn't allowed I'll delete it.
I thought a while back anons were complaining because it started asking for a social. It might have had something to do with them not accepting PayPal anymore? Idk, I guess I'll check to see if they'll still take PayPal. Thank you for the response!
Recommendations of non-demonic red contacts, preferably in prescription?
So I'm working on my Giffany cosplay and I really want to find some contacts that scream cheesy anime. Any one have any good recommendations?
Suggestions for Akuma Homura? Her eyes seem to be fuchsia or in between purple/pink/red. Most of what I've come across is too bright or true to the color.
If you have dark eyes, Venus Eye Wine Red could work. They look more natural, exactly like a wine red, unless you have light eyes, then they'll probably look too bright.
Any of GEO's Anime series lenses
I actually got a pair of blue ones from that series lately and they're ridiculously comfortable + bright.
How about these anon? Closest I could find.
SORRY FOR THE WAIT
Here's some pictures of Hana SPC Barbie Circle brown on dark eyes.
These lenses are HUGE and very comfortable. It blends well on my dark brown eyes.
Bottom pic is in somewhat natural light (It was cloudy outside, sorry gulls)
Ask away if you got any questions
Venus eye Blue, coming up
I didn't get that many pictures of these, because it got dark outside and they really didn't show up in natural light anyway.
VENUS EYE BLUE
Very comfortable, yet not as comfortable as Hana SPC Brown.
Enlarging is good. I like this enlargement, not too much, not too little!
As I said, the color actually doesn't show up well on dark eyes. A bit dissappointing since I owned the Aqua lens in the past and they showed ok.
I got these lenses from uniqso if anyone want a review
Barbie Puffy 3-tone Grey
I.codi Colors of the Winda in Milky Lilac
Geolica Euro Celine Blue
Expect people to be a bit creeped out just. I wore red lenses on a halloween party (!) and that seriously freaked out one of my friends, so i can just imagine people's reaction to it on a regular day on the tube
I bought a pair of contact lenses and they came in May of this year, but I was always too afraid to put them in so I haven't gotten around to really trying yet. I changed the solution quite often but I'm wondering if it would be a bad idea to try to put them in after so long or if I should just buy new lenses to practice with. What should I do?
I haven't tried out the milky lilac ones yet, I will do it this weekend
These are the Geolica Euro celine Blue. They are really nice and natural looking. They are only 14,2 mm so they don't enlargen that much. They were also a bit hard to put in, I had to try at least 3 times on each eye
hey i am 1st time using contact lenses for cosplay. I am also waring only glasses, so i need lenses with strengh. Unfortunatly the shop have lenses in -0.5 range so i don't know if i should pick -5,5 or -6. Maybe someone can help.
I had the same issue over a week ago during their sale. I tried twice to make a payment and failed. maybe their sale is ending? When I tried to re order the prices went up so I placed a new (less expensive) order.
I had to spend $75 to get free express shipping, and now you have to spend $100 during their "sale".
Any recommended places to order some sclera lenses for Genos (OPM)? Most of the sites I visited looked pretty shady. Uniqso was the only site that I was actually familiar with and carried the black/yellow sclera lenses. And I'm guessing it'd be impossible to find any prescription sclera lenses?
I got mine (prescription) from Samhain (http://samhaincontactlenses.com/index.php?option=com_wbcatalog&task=item&id=48&Itemid=18 is the listing in case you're curious). He's done the lenses for egg sisters cosplay and some other pretty famous people and he's done lenses for theatre companies. Very pricy, but they look excellent and are very comfortable
depends on what kind of blue. i have grey/blue eyes so grey works wonders for me! if you have more greenish/blue look for contacts that have more tones to them, or go with a green. for brighter blues it's a bit harder to match but getting something that's reviewed to not be very vibrant is a good bet to blending well(in any case actually) any you were considering?
could anyone rec me a good brand of pink lenses? the ones i have right now are eos dolly and i HATE them, they're past expired anyways so i might as well just get a new pair. the only other color contacts i've used are superpinky which i really like.
my eyes are hazel, more green than brown usually. and i need prescription. thanks!!
I've been trying to find lenses with designs on them such as hearts or stars, but I can't find anything that ships overseas or that I can actually understand at all. Do any international shipping places sell them that I've missed, or will I just have to get in touch with an SS willing to translate what Google can't make sense of?
Need advice for Alluka/Nanika. I want to do something similiar to pic related, which contacts should I use?
I'd suggest some grey lens for one eye and then a black scelera for the other.
Thanks! This is exactly what I was looking for
I bought the Puffy 3 Tone in Blue and threw them out without even wearing them for more than 10 minutes. I was beyond disappointed with how dry they are. They would cloud up after a minute no matter how many times I cleaned them or let them sit in solution, similar to how old lenses get. I hope that yours don't have the same issue, maybe I received a defective pair?
Bluest contacts for dark eyes?
Does anyone own or know of any pair of lenses that look very blue (more of a royal blue) on black/brown eyes? Been searching on YT for reviews but most of them look kinda dull in normal light.
I had those in green. It wasn't quite as bad as yours, but they just weren't pleasant to wear for too long. They were vibrant on dark eyes, at least. I'll give them that.
Moved onto to the princess bambi mimi apple green, and I've never owned a comfier lens!
I have a pair that I've worn for over a year. I change the solution every week or so, whether I've worn them or not. They feel fine, and I've never had a problem as far as infection, but they have become increasingly difficult to put in. I don't know if that's what happens when they get older, but I'm going to order new ones. So I'd say about 15 months max, from personal experience, and if you take good care of them and rarely wear them.
Yeah, the pairs I have are about 10 months old (had them opened since April), changed the solution regularly but like you mentioned, have become difficult to put in. I'm just going to toss them as they're just not being worn.
Does anyone have an idea what lenses these are? She never answers when people ask.
I want to cosplay a Hex Maniac and I don't really want to use those typical spiral contacts because I feel like they'll look retarded (they also seem to be sold out everywhere all the time?), so I'm trying to find some way around them.
Does anyone have any recommendation for preferably large circle lenses that I could use as a replacement? They don't need to have spirals, they'd just have to fit in with the character, like look "creepy" or unsettling in a way.
