-- Want to create that Japanese big-eye effect effect commonly seen in animes? There's now a way to get those big anime eyes you've always wanted. They are called circle lenses. The popular trend of circle lenses started in Asia, mainly Japan, Korea and Taiwan. Studies have shown that over 40% of teen girls in these 3 places alone wear circle contact lenses for cosmetic purposes. The new trend of circle lens fanatics has emerged mainly because contact lenses have become much more affordable and effective compared where you can buy circle lenses with a yearly usage for only $35-$50 a pair. If you were to buy the same lens at the eye doctor, it would cost an upwards of $200. The main difference between circle lenses and normal color contact lenses is the tint in the outer ring of the lens. The color tint on circle lenses actually both the area of the iris and a dark outer ring which surrounds the iris of the eye, while the tint on normal color contact lens only cover the area of the iris. This dark outer ring that surrounds the iris is what makes your eyes appear larger. The most popular brands of circle lenses are Geo, Neo and G&G lenses. However, you should make sure you purchase from an authorized reseller as some private sellers are now importing fake circle lenses from China. Although circle lenses have created a new fashion trend in most of Asia already, it is still an emerging trend in North America which is why it is almost impossible to find circle lenses sold in retails stores. Circle lenses are currently only available through a select number of authorized resellers online. Lastly, circle lenses are not for everyone, if you're the type of person who only wants naturally looking eyes, which people won't notice, then maybe normal color lenses are a better choice for you. Circle lenses are only for people who want to stand out of the crowd and have bigger and more beautiful looking eyes for people to admire. So if you want your eyes to appear larger and more colorful, maybe you should give circle lenses a try.
