Trends: Natural-Tone and Silicone Hydrogel Circle Lenses in Korea, Taiwan, and other parts of Asia

The days of bold and colorful circle lenses seem to be quickly passing as more natural lenses are taking the scene. Seen on celebrities, in the magazine, and all over the streets in Asia, natural looking lenses are more popular now and seem to be complementing the move to a more natural complexion as seen in makeup trends in Asia.

Some of the top trends seen in circle lenses are: 

-Slightly enlarging natural brown lenses
 -Silicone hydrogel lenses
-Monthly, weekly, and daily circle lenses

About Silicone Hydrogel Circle Lenses: 

Silicone Hydrogel lenses were introduced when many people were having issues with oxygen flow wearing normal contact lenses in the 1990s. The lack of oxygen flow causes Hypoxia which leads to red eyes, infections, and discomfort. Silicone Hydrogel lenses claim to be more comfortable to wear than regular lenses and enable up to 5 times more oxygen flow than from regular lenses. 

Some things to keep in mind is that Silicone Hydrogel lenses are not for everyone. Some people have been found to be allergic to the material and some find it more uncomfortable than regular lenses. It's always best to check with your optometrist to see if Silicone Hydrogel lenses are a good fit for you. 

New and Popular Circle Lens Styles in 2015: 

Clalen Iris Lenses: 
Natural ring lenses that have a graphic size of only 13.3mm. They have very minimal enlarging and accent effect. The colors available in this line are in natural colors like brown and black and do not have any bold colors. These are daily disposable lenses with Bae Suzy as the face of this contact lens line.

Geolica (Geo) Eyevelyn lenses in Brown and Choco:
These lenses are manufactured by the popular circle lens company Geolica (Geo). I believe this is the first Silicone Hydrogel lens offered by Geo and it comes in two natural colors; Brown (light/red-toned brown) and Choco (dark brown). These lenses claim to offer increased comfort, oxygen flow and UV protection. It is also approved by the USA FDA.

Neo Dali Brown series: 
These lenses have been popular for several years now. They boast moderate enlargement and a natural accent on the eyes. They are natural but more bold than those above. This series offers three brown colors at 14.2mm: Dali Sweet Chocolate (ash brown), Dali 2 Brown (dark choco brown), and Dali Premium Brown (red-toned brown).

Geolica Coco30 Brown:
Another one of Geolica's circle lenses, the Coco30 brown is a monthly-disposable lens that claims to have a beauty-camera effect. It gives your eyes a natural enlarging effect without photoshop or editing. This lens uses the dual coating technology so the contact pigment does not have direct contact with your eyes.
