    The circle contacts are also called big eye contact lenses because they will make your eyes look bigger once you wear them. They are very popular in Asia such as South Korea, Japan and China. A lot of people consider circle contact lenses as fashionable accessory rather than medical device. However, there are many risks concerning the quality of circle contact lenses. In western, few people wear circle contact lenses because they pay more attention on the eye health. In US, the FDA forbids the circle contact lenses from Asia to be sold. I guess you must have decided whether to buy them or not.

    As you say, many people especially Asian people wear circle contact lenses. Similarly, we can see more people wearing the glasses at the party. However, we should be clear that circle contact lenses are not good for our eye health. Especially, the teenager, you should wear circle contacts as less as you can. As your eyes are not fully develop yet. If you really want to wear it, you should choose the good quality glasses. At the same time, you have to pay attention to less than 12 hours. If you wear them longer, you may feel sore, tired and perhaps it could cause keratoconjunctivitis, trachoma or even lose your sight.

    Circle contact lenses with the other name big eye contact lens is in fact a cosmetic contact lens that makes the eye's iris appear larger. It is said that this kind of lenses stem from South Korea. Circle contact lenses are tinted not only in areas that cover the iris of the eye, but also prominently in the extra-wide outer rim of the lens, which result in the bigger appearance of your eyes. They are available in various colors and effects so that attract a lot of young people. It is said that many circle lenses are manufactured in Asian countries where there are no guidelines or supervision over the production of the lenses. So it may be risky to wear them. Be very much careful when you choose circle contact lenses.
