Hello~ As I’m typing right now, I’m sitting on the airplane on my way to San Diego for Comic Con 2014! Can’t wait till I land since I have a minor headache, hehe.
The Lens Story Eye-N circle lens are 2 week lens. Unlike your average circle lens that lasts for a year, these are only good for 2 weeks after it’s been opened.
I personally like lens that have a shorter life span since I think it’s more sanitary and safer for your eyes to switch more frequently. You’re average non-colored contacts that are soft lens are usually disposed after 2 weeks, so I think this is very normal. If you have the money to buy daily lens, I highly recommend those as well! Check out my review for 1-Day Acuvue Define Natural Shine and FreshLook Illuminate One-Day circle lens.
Each box comes with 8 lenses (4 pairs), all with the same power. Since each of my eyes have different prescription power, I had to get two separate boxes. The price for 1 box is $27.00.
With one 2-week box (4 pairs), it should last you about 2 months. The 1-day box (Acuvue and FreshLook have 15 pairs), which would only last you half a month (while costing more per box).
There’s nothing particularly special about the packaging. Each individual lens comes in its own container. Unlike Acuvue and FreshLook who have the lens containers joint together (forcing you to break them apart), these ones are all separated. I actually prefer them separated since it’s more convenient for me, but I can see how someone may prefer them to be joint too.
The expiration date for the Lens Story Eye-N circle lens is in 2018, giving you a significant amount of time to use. This is great for a couple of reasons: 1. Because it means that KLensPop.com isn’t selling old lens, and 2. You have plenty of time to use it.
The Lens Story Eye-N comes in two different designs: Brown and Black
I chose to go with Sweety Brown, because I wanted more lens that I could wear to work and look respectable in.
While I was photographing these lens, no matter how much I tried to focus on them, I couldn’t quite get as clear of a photo as I would have liked. But that’s when I took a closer look at the lens and realized that it was because the design isn’t as sharply pixelated as a lot of other circle lens. Somehow, the design of the Lens Story Eye-N has a softer look.
A little about the Lens Story Eye-N:
- Brand: Lens Story
- Diameter: 14.2mm
- Graphic Diameter: 13.3mm
- Base Curve: 8.6mm
- Type: 2-week disposable soft lens
The main problem that I tend to run into with these daily or 2-week lens is that the enlargement factor isn’t as great. These lens are no exception. The enlargement is mediocre, but somehow less noticeable for me in comparison to the daily lens. I think this is because the overall color of the lens tend to make my eyes look darker. These lens are more of a dark subtle brown color.
Here are some photos of my eyes under different lightings. I’ll let you guys make the call for whether or not you think these lens are good looking!
My conclusion: Overall, I find that these lens are very comfortable and that I have no trouble with them at all. The enlargement is acceptable for me, but I can understand if some of you think this is too small still. Color-wise, I find that these brown lens feel a little more complex than your average “give me brown eyes” circle lens. These ones look fairly natural but have little hints of beauty in it.
Lens Story Eye-N 2 Week Circle Lens (Sweety Brown) Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
What’s your opinion on 2-week circle lens?
If you are interested in shopping for disposable lenses (there are 1-day, 1-week, 2-week, etc.) available on KLensPop’s website. I urge you to check them out as they are a much healthier alternative to the circle lens that you are most likely wearing right now.
