Trying to find affordable toric circle lenses is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. It's difficult to find and nearly impossible-- but it is possible to find them. I'm pleased to announce that I found a retailer that sells them at a reasonable price.
Eye Candy's sells their toric circle lenses from $48-$63. Yes, they are still quite pricy compared to the non-torics, but if you have astigmatism you may be left with no choice. As an Asian girl, I too have fallen for the circle lens craze. They've become an essential part of my beauty routine when I'm not wearing glasses. I have small eyes and circle lenses give me enlargement that I need. So toric lenses are a life saver.
I digress, Eye Candy's was nice enough to send me a pair of torics to review. They sent me Neo Dali Extra Brown toric lenses. I was ecstatic because when I used to wear regular circle lenses Neo Dalis were my circle lens of choice as they are the most natural looking and are the most comfortable at 45% water content. Without further ado, here's my review on these lenses.
Neo Dali Extra Brown Toric Circle Lens
Sponsored by Eye Candy's
Despite it's low total score, I really like these lenses. I may be biased, as I am partial to Neo lenses. I gave it 7.5 on style because it is a fairly basic and "boring" circle lens. However, I love natural looking lenses and I am looking for a natural look as such, the enlargement is fairly low scoring -- but it still enlarged to a certain extent. Let me just say that I wore these lenses for my passport picture and no one said a thing -- people often don't notice I'm wearing circle lenses either. Comfort wise, it stung at first because my eyes were not used to the circle lenses but after a few minutes it felt like it wasn't there!
Not included in the score is the packaging and the service. I don't have much to say - packaging was alright. It was small and compact. It came with the circle lens vial and a basic case. The service was good, the people communicated adequately throughout this whole process -- the lenses itself, since they're toric, take 1.5 - 2 months and they let me know the status of the order consistently. I wish it were a more speedy process.Thanks for reading the review. There will be a giveaway sponsored by Eye Candy's later on and a coupon code: BONJOURGAZEL (which can be used to redeem a free gift when purchasing).
