EOS V-202 in Gray has heavily colored black outer rim that little by little turns to a bright pixilated kind of gray. The black rim stands out because it is rather deep and the color is solid, unlike the normal color of the eyes. Since the gray part is slightly apart from each other, it doesn’t create a strong gray color when worn. The spaces between the scattered pray pixels allow it to mesh with the natural colors of the. Also, because its shade of gray is in the darker side, it isn’t too noticeable or overwhelming. Imagine how the eyes glisten, or some people call it “sparkle”, when light hits it? Well, I’d like to think the gray part imitates that “shiny eyes” look rather well.. Or maybe it’s just me. LOL! You’re free to make your own judgment when you see the last photo though. 🙂
I’d like to note that the concave part of the lens is colored differently. It has more gray than black so it’s easier to tell which side of the lens is the wrong side. This detail may not be much but for those who are new to wearing contact lenses, the difference in color could be pretty helpful.
From the looks of it, this pair maybe a tad bigger than my pupil although it is not the “creepy doll-like” lenses I strongly hate. I’ve always thought 14.2 mm is the normal size but now I’m not so sure.. or it could also be that since the outer rim is jet black in color, it fakes a bigger, more awake look. Anyway, regardless of its size in relation to my pupil, I still think it looks natural, size-wise. It isn’t too big so it doesn’t really bother me.
Like I used to say, as long as the grade is correct and it doesn’t irritate my eyes, I’m good with it! I do have minor complains about this particular pair and although they aren’t really that much of a problem, I might as well put it out there. So first things first, just like most of the lenses I’ve tried before, it’s kind of irritating to put on at first. It felt like something small is poking the sides of my pupil so I had to remove it immediately. As I said, it wasn’t anything major. All I had to do was rinse it with my contact lens solution a couple of times to remove whatever dirt or particles are stuck on it. Next, it isn’t super duper thick but it isn’t as thin as my EOS Flower Series in Blue (Read review HERE) pair too. I can still feel it inside my eyes and it takes a while to get used to – this is just a matter of one’s level of sensitivity, actually. After weeks of use, I’ve finally gotten used to it. Hooray! 🙂
Other than those unnecessary concerns that normally occurs when I use lenses, everything’s fine. I’m still able to use this pair and it is still completely functional. No major irritation, itchiness and redness. It doesn’t feel dry even after hours of use and it’s fairly easy to remove.
