View Full Version : Suggestion for blue Lightning contacts?
04-13-2012, 07:36 PM
I'm cosplaying for Lightning this year and am in the process of buying contacts.
I need prescription and have dark colored eyes. I had previously bought blue contacts but because of dilation, they were often blurry when indoors. I'm more worried about comfort rather than color. Anyone have any suggestions?

What is your prescription? I have dark eyes, as well as a prescription and recently got contacts from this site: https://extremesfx.com/. You might already know of it, but when I wore them, they were very comfortable (when my pupils dilated, it wasn't blurry but I could see the color of the contacts on the outer rim a bit).
However, you might have a different comfort level than I do. The majority of colored contacts on that site have a base curve of 8.6 and a diameter of 14.5.
Also, if you're on a budget I wouldn't recommend the site since it's close to 30.00+ for a pair with a prescription. But, you don't need to fax your information from your optometrist to get them; that's the convenient part.

I wore the Dolly + Blue lenses last weekend at a convention and they were very comfortable. The color is vibrant and they didn't make my vision blurry.
The Dolly Eye Blue are even more opaque and vibrant over dark eyes, but in my case they made my vision a bit blurry, though nothing major.

I think Macaron Aqua Blue are the perfect blue circle lenses. c:
I don't own them myself but I plan on getting a pair from that series. I heard that they are super comfy and is true to it's color. ^^

i like the beaucon vibrant match line for natural looking colour. And the old standby colourmax lenses. the vassen ruby lenses in blue are also really nice on dark eyes but less comfortable than the beaucon ones.
coastalcontacts.com also has a line of coloured circle lenses that are called clearly colours comfort curve. I love these lenses and they really are the most comfortable ones I wear. I have the green, amber, and violet ones. They show up perfectly on my dark eyes, even in photos.
