It is always good and wise decision to do some research before placing your first order of contact lenses. You only have one pair of eyes, so take care of them and pay attention to the following details to find the most comfortable lenses for your eyes.
Big Eye Circle Lens
Big eye contact lens or big eye circle lens is a cosmetic contact lens or non corrective contact lens that makes your eyes appear larger and that come in variety of colors and effects.
All big eye contact lenses have a diameter bigger than 14.0mm and can go up to 18.0mm. On Solution-Lens.com website big eye contact lenses are available in 14.20mm, 14.50mm, 14.80mm and 15.00mm.

These big eyes lenses become a trend throughout South Korea, Japan, Thailand and many countries but most of the time it is not legal to sell contact lenses bigger than 15mm.
Limbal Ring Circle Lens
A limbal ring is a dark ring or the darkest color around the iris surrounding the whole lenses. It is often in black color for the limbal ring. The darkest color or the limbal rings are considered attractive and imply youthfulness like byby’s eyes.
Circle Lens Base Curve
Everybody should know his eyes base curve before buying contact lenses. Knowing which base curve you need is one of the most important aspects when ordering contact lenses online. Base curve is actually the shape of the lens and a correct base curve will fit on your cornea. Most of the time people base curve is 8.6mm or 8.7mm.
Contact lenses with an incorrect base curve for your eyes is one of the most common reasons for discomfort, too large or too small base curve always bring a very uncomfortable feeling to your eyes.
You need to visit an eye specialist to know the base curve that match your eyes. The right base curve will fit properly and cover the entire cornea, your lenses should move slightly when you blink your eyes.
If you feel dryness, itchiness, irritation or if the lenses are moving a lot, it means that the base curve is wrong, it is too loose and you need to take off these lenses immediately.
If the base curve is too tight, oxygen might be blocked by the lenses and your eyes will be irritated, your vision blur.
Most of the lenses have a base curve of 8.6mm and fit well on most of human eyes.
Plano Circle Lens
Plano contact lenses are cosmetic non corrective contact lenses that can be purchased without prescription. Most people wear plano contact lenses for the purpose of changing their eye color. We sell only plano contact lenses on Solution-Lens.com, for specific order please contact our shop for more information.
Circle Lens Diameter
This is the size of the lens. The bigger the diameter is, the more obvious the big eye effect you will get. The limbal ring on the lenses will offer more enlargement effect compared to lenses with the same diameter but without ring.
We recommend you to start with small diameter 14.0mm or 14.2mm if you are a beginner and never tried circle lenses.
Circle Lens Water Content
This refers to the ratio of water in the lens. Contact lens with high water content will be more flexible and might lose its shape easily when handled.
If water content of a lens is too high you might feel discomfort but too low water content will also result in dryness for your eyes because oxygen won’t pass through the water.
Most lenses with huge diameter have higher water content than small diameters lenses. You need to decide what type of lenses you want, natural looking lenses or enlargement effect like a doll eye.
It is not harmful to wear lenses with less water content than the maximum possible and most of companies are making contact lens with 38% water content.
If you have sensitive eyes, you need to be more careful when wearing lenses and choose contact lenses with 42% or more water content for a more comfortable experience.

Single tone contact lenses are available in only one color and have no limbal ring. Most of single Tone contact lenses are made for a very natural result. We have a wide variety of 1-tone lenses of any colors as brown, black, blue and others available on our shop.
