Exclamation Colored Contacts with an 8.4 base curve?

My contacts from all of my regular vendors have been uncomfortable lately, and I found out that my base curve for my contacts should be 8.4 when most websites only have 8.5-8.9! BC is really crucial to comfort and safety, so I don't want to take any risks. I have found one website that has my base curve, but they are natural lenses.

Has anyone else had the some problem and does anyone know where I can get 8.4 BC colored lenses from a reliable site?

Thank you so much

That's really hard to find. I use contacts from Clearly.ca. I looked and couldn't find any with a BC smaller than 8.5. They have larger ones (up to 8.7) but nothing smaller. Good luck!

Someone else with an 8.4!?
I just ordered some with 8.5 and 8.6, so I'll let you know how that turns out for me... it seems neigh impossible to find a good selection of 8.4 and I don't wear contacts every day... I just really wanted to try something new in my OC stuff

An optician told me once that 8.6 is the most common base curve, hence why it's by far the most common one to find for especially cosmetic lenses. I think that it's gonna be really hard to come by something as small as 8.4 in circle/colored lenses, unless you pay for custom orders.

I've been through most big overseas circle lens stores extensively and I'm pretty sure I've rarely, if ever, seen a 8.4 curve.

UPDATE!

I ordered two pairs of 8.6 lenses from Pinky Paradise, and they were both comfortable and fit well all day at SDCC. So yes, that means with the heat, sun (i don't own non-perscript sunglasses... lol), humidity and everything else con/weather related.

I highly recommend checking them out!
