Circle lenses are cosmetic contact lenses that are indented to make your iris appear larger than they are. This is an Asian beauty trend which is very common in countries like South Korea, China, Taiwan and Japan among other Asian countries. It is also in these countries where there is huge production of such lenses. They are very popular among teens and young adults and most people consider them to be fashion accessories rather than medical devices.

Their diameter ranges between 14 mm and 16 mm, but most of them have an average diameter of 15mm since a larger diameters can damage the eye if worn on daily basis. When a circle lens is described as 16mm or 18 mm, you only talk about the provided visual effects brought about by the circle lens. In circle lens, it is not only the area covering the iris is tinted, but it also includes the extra outer rim of the circle lens. This results to a bigger and wider appearance of your iris creating an illusion of large eyes. The major difference between the circle contact lenses and the normal color lenses is the tinted area, unlike circle contact lenses, normal color lenses are only tinted on the area that covers the iris. The middle of the lens (optical zone) is designed large enough and transparent to provide you with clear vision.
