Is it normal to have decreased vision while wearing circle lenses?

I put on my circle lenses for the first time today and I guess I wouldn't call it a decrease in vision to much as everything seemed a little darker.

Just wondering if this is normal. My eyes weren't red or anything, lights just seemed dimmer and it was sort of weird.

I would guess that the coloured part of the lenses is going over the pupil a bit.

Makes sense, my pupils are naturally pretty dialated. I just got a bit nervous that something went wrong.

Most colour lenses will do that- a combination of the lens sliding over your pupil on occasion, and the base curves rarely being exactly the shape that your eye should be wearing/wider than normal. In my optician-bought freshlook lenses, I can't read any small print or the like unless it's also very brightly lit. My dolly eye lenses are actually a bit better, but I get more fatigued if I have to do something with small things to look at.
