So pit, I got my circle lenses today. First I put them on right away not realizing that they are packed and shipped in a vial full of rubbing alcohol to keep them sterile. I'm not stoned. My eyes are just irate from the rubbing alcohol .
I'd like to know what the pit's opinion is.

Left eye is no contact the other had EOS Pink Super Nudy.

Were these lenses a good purchase according to the pit?

No. A waste of money and they look dumb.

naw, looks stupid and don't fit properly. throw them out, and get some normal contacts like an intelligent human being.

Just my personal taste.

so.. are you a dude or a chick? either way, i'd hit it.

-edit after looking at profile-
hey if you like em then keep em. basically wear whatever makes you feel most comfortable and confident. dont let the above knowitalls get you down if you actually like wearing them.

but shame on you if you're wearing it to try to look like a vampire or something

the fact that they're ****ing pink/purple, and we can still see the brown of your real iris.

I personally think they look really pretty. Definately a good wise purchase.

Edit: i think seeing the brown in the center makes it look even cooler. It's another layer of colour.

YUCKYUCKYUCK. NO.
I don't want to look like a vampire.
although Robert Pattison is a good actress in other films, I'd rather not look like a lesbian.

Can still see a little bit of the brown in the right eye. Other than that, I like them.

Its because the flash of the camera makes the pupil contract. Normally they fill up the gap in the color aside from a small 'halo' effect which I think is pretty cool since when I wear them in normal light the pinks kinda muddy and it looks like its blending from brown to pink

Like I just wrote. I used flash on my camera. IRL in normal light they look like a muddy pink that blands with the color. Also, thats called the halo effect

Ah, ok.

Well, you apparently didnt get them fitted right. So people might face palm you over that. But choice wise, whatever floats your boat. Doesnt matter what we think, really.


Im not personally a fan of exotic contact lenses, but I have a friend that loves em (he spent $300 on the things). So I say again, to each their own. But for next time, if youre gonna wear them, id at least get them fitted right.

edit: Oh, ok. Perhaps they are fitted right. Just looks off to me then I suppose. Like you said, maybe it looks dramatically different in person.

I bought mine online without getting measured for $22. They also had glow in the dark ones, rainbow ones, mirrored ones, and I fond a place where I can get custom printed ones. If he dropped $300 on a pair of lenses I kinda have to face palm. Unless they're prescription. Mine are plano

I think they look pretty good.

Thanks I wanted opinions from the pit cuz my boyfriend I think is a pit monkey but won't tell me and I'm afraid he won't like them.

Its like they think I'm going to f*ck them or blow them if they all of a sudden go "OH NO! I WAS KIDDING. THEY'RE GORGEOUS"

Quote by misterfarenheit
i know seriously, the whole vampire trend is retarded

I ordered them at the same time as a girl from school. She bought them from a different place and dropped $150 on "Edward Cullen Lenses". I found out they came in with a tear, and she put them in right out of the vial like I did (rubbing alcohol in the eye btw) but she left them in for like 8 hours like a dumbass.

Well I rather they walk as "vampires" than werewolves. Vampires are still suck though)

About the lenses: They look wierd. If you NEED lenses buy normal ones. I, personally, prefer glasses.

I don't need them for a vision problem. My right iris is 5 mm smaller than my left. It sounds petty but to me its like, a pinprick of an iris and for some reason it really bothers me.
I used to have to wear glasses, but they were irritating

Oh I did facepalm him. It was necessary as his friend ! But tbh, all is well. Spend money on what you want. However, its a bigger face palm now since he could have gotten them cheaper.


Ill have to tell him. Maybe there was a reason they were so expensive, I dunno. He found alot of crazy ones, like the glow in the dark you mentioned etc. Tbh, I really have no place mentioning fitting anyways. Im not an eye doctor. For all I know, you dont even NEED to be fitted

To be quite frank, I can't imagine _anyone_ walking around with pink contacts in public.

And no, I don't like them. But then again I'm a fan of the 'natural' look.

How so? Maybe I'm just used to seeing girly looking guys, but I thought it was a guy until I read the rest of the thread.

She asked for our opinions. We are being honest. Stop making it sound like we are just being dicks because we don't like them.

You need glasses weaker than your prescription. For example my case: -1.5 vision -0.5 glasses. You need to give some for your eyes to get used to the glasses.
In my platoon there were some dudes who had vision problems. Some would were contacts, some could see OK without vision enhancements but when going for a job all would put usual eyeglasses on. In contrary to popular belief eyeglasses DO NOT pop with the shards piercing into your eyeball. Eyeglasses are made of plastic. In addition they don't have a tendency to fall off in responsible moments. Even if they do it's easy to find them)

Unless he got like, custom printed ones with handmade solution from the milk of a Tibetan goat at the top of Mount everest and they light up I don't see a reason to drop $300 on something that expires in about a year.
glow in the dark ones are like $50 since it costs a bit more. And nope, there was no fitting to be done.

I don't have an official prescription for glasses. My eye dr told me to get medium power reading glasses because I cant see shit for about a foot in front of me. Well, I can, its just hella blurry
