A circle contact lens, also known as a big eye contact lens, is a special contact lens that makes the eye's iris appear larger; this product was originally invented in South Korea. The contact lenses are generally used to give a larger appearance to the eyes. They are very popular in Asian countries. They are used to create the Ulzzang look, which is characterized by large eyes, small noses and fair skin.

Circle contacts have the color covering a majority of the contact, causing the color to go beyond the iris and manipulating the ratio between the iris and the eye, thus, the appearance of a larger iris. It comes in a variety of colors, and effects. The diameter of the lens is on average 14 mm (more than 2 mm longer than the average iris diameter). The lenses themselves range from natural-looking colors to special effects. There are other types of lenses as well, such as Super Angel Eyes, Magic Lenses, Tearful Circle, Two Tone Lenses, and Hurricane lenses

These lenses are Conventional Wear-Lathe Cut; with proper care, our lenses will last up to one year.

It all began with the color contact, which promised to change your dull eyes into bright baby blues, or violets, or even vampire-esque blood red for Halloween (or an Eclipse-themed party). Then came the Christian Dior contacts, which promised to brand your eyeballs with the famous CD logo.

And now, who better to jump on this eyeballs-as-accessories trend than Lady Gaga — who is the queen of strange fashion accoutrements. Fans went wild after seeing Lady Gaga’s cartoonish eyeballs in her Bad Romance video. So wild that they needed to know how to get themselves a pair.

The New York Times reports, Lady Gaga’s wider-than-life eyes were most likely generated by a computer, but teenagers and young women nationwide have been copying them with special contact lenses imported from Asia. Known as circle lenses, these are colored contacts — sometimes in weird shades like violet and pink — that make the eyes appear larger because they cover not just the iris, as normal lenses do, but also part of the whites.

FROM foot binding to corsets and towering stiletto heels, women's pursuit of fashion has often involved an element of pain and risk. Now it is the eye's turn to be manipulated in the name of beauty.

Circle lenses are a new breed of cosmetic contact lenses which are bigger than the iris, giving the wearer a wide-eyed, doll-like look. Originating in South Korea, they are becoming popular among teenagers and women in their early 20s.

The lenses rocketed to fame when Lady Gaga wore them in her Bad Romance video clip. They are now sold on countless websites and an internet video explaining how to to re-create the Lady Gaga look has been watched nearly 10 million times.
