Help! I have special eyes!

Lol, but really. All of the circle lenses sites don't have my prescription because my eyesight is so bad. Does anyone know of a place were they sell -5.25 (R) and -5.00 (L) circle lenses? Or is it just a lost cause? Thankss!!!!

Pinkyparadise (www.pinkyparadise.com) should turn up plenty in that strength (most go from 0 to -8).

I second that, I have a friend who have one -9 and one -10, and she orders from pinky, so you should have luck there.

Sadly, Pinkyparadise doesn't have -5.25. After -5.00 they go by 50's, so they skip -5.25.

You may be able to do a -5.00 for both eyes. Just from personal experience, wearing contacts that are just under your prescribed correction work well enough. For a while my contacts were actually a weaker correction than my glasses. While I didn't have nearly the clarity when wearing my contacts as I did my glasses, it wasn't too bad. I don't know how this will affect your vision since you do have a slightly different 'script for each eye.

my eyes are worse than yours! don't fear. like others have said, pinky paradise has prescriptions in the -5.00 variety. another option is honeycolor (i believe they're kind of the exact same website? correct me if im wrong). i recently bought a pair that was -5.50 and -6.00.

There is also LensVillage. I poked around about them and they seem to be in the same areas as pinky and have a lot of the same contacts. I had to go there for the pair I just bought because I'm -3.00 in each eye, and though pinky had that for my right eye, the options for my left were either -4.00 or -2.25, neither of which would work.

I do however agree with wanders_alone, you'll be fine if you stick to 0.25 within your script.

You may also want to talk to your eye doc and see if he's willing to even you out. I had a 0.25 difference between my eyes since I started wearing glasses, went to a different eye doc once, and he said that my eyes were so close together that he was just going to even me out (hence why I now have -3.00 and -3.00). I find it way more convenient because I don't have to buy 2 boxes of contacts now and I don't end up with that awkward single lens that managed to not get used.
