Rain or shine, I can always count on my lens fairy, Valerie of Dull to Doll. I received my 2nd pair of contact lens from her few days ago. Let me just tell you that what design and color of lenses I’ll be getting every time is a surprise so when my sister texted me that a packaged arrived, I hurriedly went home. So excited, I opened the LBC plastic and all the bubble wrap. I became even more excited when I saw the usual lens packaging from Dull to Doll, a nicely done peach ribbon on a small paper bag with matching letter from the ever so sweet owner of the shop.
|As usual, contact lens set from Dull to Doll always comes with a free case.|
After opening it completely, (to my horror) I was greeted by 2 EOS bottles containing these huge green lenses. And I was like, seriously? With my morena skin, green talaga? I was slightly disappointed. This is actually my 2nd green contact lens. The first one was from an auction. To say that I look like a freakin’ snake with my first green lens (which was a tri-color green lenses, by the way) would be an understatement.
So I was kinda hesitant to wear my EOS WM-201 Max Pure Green at first. But after a few days, I finally mustered the courage to go out of my comfort zone and try it on. I kept looking at myself on my vanity mirror and came up with my final conclusion, Valerie really knows her thing! She’s making me fall inlove with the most unconventional colors for morena skin. Who would’ve known… green talga. *wink

Life Span: 1 year
EOS WM-201 Max Pure offers a slight enlargement effect but not like those obviously-fake anime eyes that, for me personally, shouldn’t be worn on a daily basis. They’re cute for cosplays and events like that but definitely not for school. Anyway, that’s just me.
14.8mm is just few mm bigger than the normal size of our pupil which is somewhere between 14-14.5mm making it more eye-catching and expressive but without making you look unnatural and F-A-K-E.
After not being able to wear contact lenses for a whole month, I have now learned my lesson. From now on, I will strictly follow my doctor’s advice which was to wear my lenses for only 8-10 hours a day.
As usual, I did experience a bit of itchiness and discomfort during my first attempt to wear this particular pair of contact lens. No redness occurred though. Then after cleaning it twice with a normal solution, putting this on became a breeze. I just have to make sure that I add a drop of solution before putting it on. That way, I wouldn’t feel any dryness and discomfort throughout the day.
Every thing is in HD when I’m wearing my graded lenses. LOL! As long as I get the right prescription lenses, I can see clear and that’s enough for me. I didn’t experience any blurred vision nor did I notice any wrongly positioned lens details or defects that might cause dizziness or obstruction of my sight.
I’m just loving this green tone to bits! It’s not overly light so I don’t look like a snake with this pair on. I feel like a true blooded Lasalista especially during Friday’s when I am obliged to wear our Lasallian Centennial Shirt to school. You guessed it! Of course our shirt is green. LOL! My blockmate even thought I bought this lenses just to match our dark green shirt. So cool!
What it looks like on me:

For those of you who follow me on Twitter (and I suggest you do) would already know that I caught a weird eye infection almost 2 months ago. Rest assured that it wasn’t due to the last contact lens I did a review on. I was so scared of going blind so I asked the ophthalmologist what caused the infection just so I can correct it. She said it maybe from my laziness to clean my contact lenses before and after wearing it. Plus, I have this thing going on where I only get 1-3 hours of sleep at night, sometimes from pulling an all-nighter, then I wear my lenses which causes strain on my precious eyes.
Here are some tips I got from my doctor:
I suggest you follow them too.
First, contact lens cases should be changed every 3 months. Next, contact lenses should only be worn for a maximum of 12 hours a day so don’t forget to bring your eye glasses with you. When wearing your glasses, try to remove it every hour or two for 5 minutes to relax your eyes. Another thing is to avoid wearing your lenses when you lack sleep. Lastly, always always make sure your contact lenses are authentic.
My over-all verdict: 4.8/5!
So what do you think of my new contact lens?
Is green my new color? I’d love to hear what you think.
