Selling unopened contacts?

I hate to see my collection got to waste but I've sadly come to the conclusion that my eye are just TOO small to fit contacts on and wastes three set to prove that.

I have 4 pairs and one single seen here. The green ones I used in the photo for practice and are gone and I have a pair of Gothika Blood Red ones as well. All are plano.

I asked a couple of friend if they wanted them but they only wear perception one. And I'm also sure I can't list them in the Marketplace here or on MUA.

I wondering if anyone has some advise on getting them a new home.

maybe someone with a table at the AN fleamarket can help you out? A lot of people search for last min things like contacts and wigs at the con itself and I know they allow used wigs and cosplays to be sold at the fleamarket this year.

that's a bit silly because circle lenses/coloured lenses need at least 8 hours of disinfecting after opened before you put them in your eyes

damn if i didn't need a prescription i'd take them off your hands

How are you putting in your contacts, and are you ordering ones with a base curve to your actual eye size? My eyelids/eyes are quite small, pretty much Asian-sized (no offense to Asians, but you know what I mean; hooded/covering-most-of-my-eyes eyelids that don't let me open my eyes as wide as a typical caucasian), and I can still get contacts in with little difficulty. Sometimes you just really need to pry your eyelids apart to open your eye up enough, and if your ordering ones too big for your actual base curve, then that's why they'd be not fitting properly.

I'll give my geo red ones a go then and the clearly once has an extra 4mm of clear ring around the design that I keep catching one.
I just can't pry my lids open any more without and extra hand involved to literally fold the lids back.... which is not ideal.

If that fails I'll be doing the AN Nominoichi VIII next year.

After you take them out of the packaging, you should rinse them off with contact solution and then put them in your lens case, with your contact lens solution, and let them soak for at least 8 hours.

The fleamarket is on the fri night. they would still have time to use them at the con. That's why everyone rushes there and to the dealers room on fri to look for last min costumes. ><;

Yes I was them first with a Clear Care No Rub solution that my friend sews by first. Then I use saline solution to wash them and put them in the case.

I really like the amber ones, are you selling them? How much would you be willing to part with them?

If you're selling the bullseye contacts I'll take them off of your hands

Please do not offer purchase of contact lenses on this thread. Take it to PMs or off site so that your transaction is not out in the open.
