It did take them a few weeks (three and a half?) to get here, but I'm used to waiting for overseas orders so it wasn't that big a deal. Each pair of lenses came with a free case, so yay!
I had to try the Twilight Gray pair first.
I could tell while transferring the lenses into their cases to soak that they are a little bigger than what I normally wear, and also the center hole is a bit bigger than I would ideally prefer. However, for $15/pair I'm not going to complain too much about that.
From a "normal" distance the big hole isn't that noticeable, or if you're in an area dark enough to really dilate your pupils. Since the lenses themselves are on the bigger side I did notice them in my eyes from time to time, but they weren't at all painful. Like... if you're not used to wearing contacts. I felt them, but not all the time and not in an uncomfortable way.
Here you can see the discrepancy between my pupil and the pupil-hole. I really wish manufacturers weren't so afraid of obscuring peoples' vision. lol What's the point if you can tell right off that they're contacts?!
Next I tried the Twilight Green pair.
Isn't that a gorgeous color?!
Taking into account my skin, hair and natural eye color - I think I prefer lighter colored lenses. lol The extra darkness makes me look kind of evil.
As with the gray lenses, these were noticeable in my eyes from time to time, but not painful and I had no physical discomfort with them.
Both pairs retail for $23/pair not on sale which is still a pretty good deal. (back in the 90s these would have been about $80/lens so... yep) Overall I do recommend LensVillage for their periodic sales; even though it doesn't look like they accept paypal I didn't have any problems using my debit card as a credit card and that gets a thumbs up from me. On a personal blind-person level I still prefer Pinky Paradise (despite their flip-flopping payment methods) for the sheer selection of Rx lenses they offer. Both sites offer quality lenses (they don't feel too flimsy or rigid and arrive in the glass vials you'd expect) and the Rx power has been perfect from both sites. If I do have issues in the future, y'all will be the first to know.
I really like the gray ones. *teehee*
I think I covered everything I wanted to. If you have any questions at all feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer. In the meantime I believe I'll take a hot shower and a nap before dinner. *cough~cough* >_> lol Y'all take care out there and stay well! There's something going around... it's not horrid, but definitely annoying. See you in a few days! (^_^)"/"
