                                                                 Hello everyone!!!
                         Today i have a little game for you!Spot the difference in the two photos below!!

It is obvious that i'm wearing coloured lenses in the first picture.BUT!!!These are not just simple coloured
lenses they are Circle Lenses!!!!
But first what are Circle Lenses?

Circle contact lenses make one's eyes appear larger and come in a variety of colors and effects. They have been around since 2005 and are very popular in Asian countries such as South Korea,Japan,Taiwan and China.The diameter of regular contact lenses that are sold in the United States are on average 14mm–16mm, similar to the diameter of the cosmetic circle contact lenses.The difference between the two types of lenses is that circle contact lenses are tinted not only in areas that cover the iris of the eye, but also prominently in the extra-wide outer rim of the lens. The result is the appearance of a bigger, wider iris and create an illusion of large, doll-like eyes.The optical zone in the middle is transparent and it is large enough to provide clear vision.
The lenses are popular among Asian teenagers and young adults.Many people consider circle lenses to be a fashion accessory rather than a medical device. They are often used to create a look reminiscent of anime characters.They are also used to create the Kawaii look which is characterized by large eyes with anime-like features, or the Uljjang look.

                   Japanese model Aya Suzuki sporting some false eylashes with her circle lenses.

  Uljjang wearing brown circle lenses for a cuter and more innocent look.

The basic thing is that these lenses aren't used as a beauty mark but as a fashion accessory as said above.Asian girls can have their whole outfit based on the pattern and colour their lenses have.
It is part of their everyday fashion.

Are circle lenses safe though?

There is a controversy on whether circle lenses are good for your eyes or not but nothing has happened tome from my experience using them.The problem is mainly because circle lenses can be used for a whole year!!!I don't think it's wise to do so though.Half a year is super enough for their price!
!If you pay attention and take care of your lenses by keeping them clean
you will be alright.
 And where can i get circle lenses?

There are many online shops nowadays where you can get your circle lenses.
Most of them are based on Asian countries since this is their birthplace.
Some of them are pinkyparadise,koreabigeyes,candylens,eyecandylens.
I got mine from eyecandy lens their service was excellent!!! ^^
