  • GNG Contacts/Big-eye effect Contacts

    Hi cotters! Just want to know more about the GNG contacts, or those big-eyed kinds that's so popular now. Modders, I tried to search on this topic but came up with nothing, so I decided to create my own. Sorry if it's a repetition.

    Do they look real? Cause I'm scared that if I wear it, I will look like I have two big black holes for my eyes, like a ghost out of those horror films. Are they able to like, reflect light like normal eyes?

    Also, will the 1 year contacts really last for 1 year or not? Or will there be a lot discomfort like after half a year or so...

    Which brands do you recommend?

    I'm wearing the GnG lenses right now, those brown ones, but for a month only, so cant tell you if longer will be uncomfortable anot.. But it seems more softer than the usual lenses so quite comfy..
    Before this I was wearing the freshkon big eye effect.. At 1st do look weird, I thought I look like Sadako, but after a few days, got used to it & love the effect.. If u're eyes is on the small side maybe can choose those not so black ones..

    Any idea where to order theGnG lenses, 'cause the one I went on spree no longer..

        That's what I want to know also... Because I got a pair last time but my eyes became ultra painful whenever I put the contacts in after 2 months or so. Plus my friends say they don't dare to look at me in the eye cause my eyes look very scary.

          I remember there was a story about this Taiwanese lady who took out her cornea together with such a lens. It seems that you need to be careful about wearing them for too long at a time. Don't want to scare anyone, just be careful, okie?

            Oh ya, I also heard about the accident...quite gross that her entire cornea was stuck to the lens. But I think GNG should be quite safe?

                  ive been wearing GnG in gray for about a year. but the lenses dont really last a year for me as i'll change them every 2-3 months or so as it will get uncomfortable and "prickly" to wear. colour wise gray is very natural blended with a tinge of purplish-blue so under sunlight everyone asks me if im wearing blue or gray.

                  enlarges the iris sufficiently and doesnt look sadako-y.

                  HOWEVER. i had encountered this incident which i hope is one-off while using GnG. my eyes became very sensitive. there was a point of time where i believed i might have an infection as my eyes got teary easily and there are alot of excretions from the inner corners of my eyes.

                  and it will hurt whenever i insert any lens into my eyes. it took me about a month to recover and 3 trips to the GP for eyedrops. i refrained from wearing lenses for about 1 month.

                  its only recently that i start wearing my contacts again.

                        just becareful of who you buy from.. and i think the market rate is about $45 for a yearlong pair right? i just wear mine for 2-3 months then i'll change already.

                        or just buy locally from reliable sources. i spent more than $100 on my eye infection treatments at the GP, and even had a referral to go to the National eye centre.

                              prettyeagle,

                              Was your infection/irritation caused by the lenses?

                              I gave up on wearing any coloured lenses a long time ago. My eyes immediately feel very dry and itchy and I see the stripes of colour! But I'm addicted to regular lenses though...
