My Opinion Counter: Circle lenses


Circle lenses have been made popular throughout Asian countries, but these lenses actually originated from South Korea. This then started that whole “Ulzzang” or doll-like frenzy all around Asia. However, its popularity has now sky rocketed and has now spread through different parts of the world including the United States.

Now, you might ask, “what is/are circle lenses?” and “are they the same as regular contact lenses?” Well, for starters, circle lenses are practically the same as regular colored contact lenses aside from the fact that they give the illusion of a much bigger iris. Most of these lenses have a thick outer rim to them, while some do not. However, these lenses do vary in sizes depending on how enlarged you want your iris to appear. These lenses vary from a 14.0mm which is the smallest, to as big as 16.0mm. This is another reason why they are called “circle lens” instead of just the regular term, contact lens.

Circle lenses also comes in a huge variety of styles, and colors. From the natural looking lenses that will give you just the right amount of enlargement and a slight boost in color, to the very extreme unrealistic looking lenses that looks almost costume-like.  

Another thing that you might need to know about these lenses is that, since they are a little bit thicker than the usual contact lenses that your optometrist prescribes, the time that you wear them will also differ. As the circle lens are a little thicker, your eyes will need more oxygen to breath, hence less time to wear these particular lenses. Usually, a minimum of 5-6 hours of wear, but for some lenses, they are so comfortable that they could be worn for much longer.

I, personally have been wearing circle lenses with prescription for the past 2 or 3 years now and I have not gone blind whatsoever. So, although, the United States’ FDA has not actually approved these lenses, it is up to you to proceed with caution in regards to trying them, especially if it’s your first time.
