How to Get a Perfect Circle Lenses

By Trungct902

Finding the perfect pair of circle lenses doesn’t have to be hard if you know what to look for. While you may have to spend a lot of time comparing, it’s worth it to make sure the lenses you’re purchasing are going to be the best lenses for you. Once you have a good idea of the kind of circle lenses that are going to work best for you, it will be easier to shop for them in the future because you’ve removed the guesswork from the situation. Let’s help you get an idea of your style, how they fit, and what they’ll look like on you, and what you should look for in a retailer to customize your shopping experience.

How to Get a Perfect Circle Lenses

Always Shop from a Reliable Retailer

You want to make sure the retailer you’re purchasing your lenses from has been approved by a countrywide organization for medical safety. Reliable retailers will list their licenses on their websites so you know your lenses are coming from a trusted authority. There’s no reason to be suspicious of lens stores that have the proper approval, because you know the product that you’re getting has been deemed safe to use. It’s the ones who don’t have approval that you need to watch out for.

Pick the Size That’s Right for You

Circle lenses come in diameters, and each of these diameters will give you a different look. These range from a more subtle effect to an extreme doll eye effect. If you’re not sure exactly what you’re going for, start somewhere in the middle. If you purchase a pair of lenses that are a midpoint, it will be easy to determine whether you want to go smaller or larger with your future lenses. If you don’t already know exactly how they’re going to look on you, this method will help you find out.

Do You Want a Limbal Ring?

The limbal ring will make a world of difference in how your lenses look on you. The limbal ring is the black band that occurs subtly in our eyes which separates our iris from our sclera. In a contact lens, the limbal ring is often more pronounced. They come in different sizes and thicknesses, and some lenses don’t have one at all. Stronger limbal rings will provide more of a doll-eyed look and does more to make your eyes look larger, while a thinner limbal ring will give you a more natural effect. No limbal ring doesn’t always change the appearance of the size of your eyes and will mostly effect the appearance of your iris.

Selecting Colors

If you want your lenses to change the color of your eye, there are some things you need to take into consideration. If you have very dark eyes, you’ll need to select a stronger, more opaque color to block your natural eye color from showing through. If you have lighter eyes, you’ll find that there are less limits to your options. Lenses that are more translucent in their colors aren’t necessarily a bad thing, particularly if that color is going to work well with your natural eye color showing through. It may even create a more realistic effect. 

Deciding on Tones

Lenses come with or without tones. Usually, very opaque lenses tend to be limited to one color. Lenses with different tones are designed to mimic the appearance of your natural eye. If you look closely at your eyes, you’ll notice that they aren’t necessarily one solid color. You’ll have darker shades, lighter shades, and maybe some flecks of color that are completely different from your main eye color. Tonal lenses will use blends of colors to create a similar effect. If you want a very animated look, lenses that rely heavily on tones may not provide one for you. If you’re going for a delicate and dainty look, you’ll probably find that you prefer lenses with tones. Tones will also help blend colorful lenses into dark eyes if you’re having a difficult time finding lenses that work for that purpose.

How Long Do You Need Them For?

Lenses expire at different times. If you know you’re going to wear your lenses often, you might want to invest in yearly lenses. This means the lenses will be able to be reused for approximately a year before you dispose of them. Weekly lenses work well if you need your lenses for a costume or a weekend event, and likely won’t desire to wear them after the fact. Daily lenses are better for people who want to change up their lenses frequently, or who only need them for single use purposes. Things like photo shoots or modelling pictures are suited best to daily lenses.

Do You Want Fun Lenses or Everyday Lenses?

Before you answer this question, take a moment to think about how daring you are. It would be a shame to be disappointed because your selection didn’t work for you. Circle lenses will dramatically change your face, and you need to consider the way you want to do that. If you’re bold and brave and want to wear a lens that’s going to give you the appearance of a fantasy character, you need to be committed to that idea. These generally aren’t the kinds of lenses you’ll want to wear to work, but they’re fun on the weekends or special events. Natural looking circle lenses are bold and make an impact, but they’re more adaptable to your everyday environment. If you want to meet somewhere in the middle, you can always choose a very dramatic style in a natural color to get the best of both worlds.
