Each of the bottles would also have the design name and colour labelled on top of the cap so that you can identify them. Over here, you can see the labels for my Iris Green and Iris Brown bottles. They are also labelled with eye power so that you wouldn’t mix them up.
How to open
Amongst the three designs, I prefer Icy Grey the most because it blends into my eye colour better than the other two. Although, it could use a bit more pigment on the grey since the colour is a little harder to notice from far. The second design that I’d go about is the Iris Green and the last would be Iris Brown. Quite frankly, after wearing these lenses, I personally do not prefer Iris Brown because it looked more like a gold-hazel than a brown. While I enjoy looking like a Cullen, I actually still prefer my eyes to look more natural, especially when I’m still a mortal. (This is a Twilight reference.)
* These are based on the critiques that I have on these particular designs only. From my blogger friends’ photos, their chosen lenses looked pretty okay.
Just as some of my friends would agree to this, the comfortability of these lenses varies from day to day. I’ve tried lenses ranging from RM45, RM60 to RM80 and each of these price range offers different comfortability so I’m just going to assess the comfortability of these Barbie Eyesland lenses based on the RM25 price tag.
Stated on the packaging: 62% Polymacon, 38% water
They are surprisingly okay. I was able to see through the lenses without being blocked by the designs. Sometimes I wear them from morning till night and I’m still able to drive around safely because my eyes were still clear. However, when it gets dry, it gives me a headache. I had a bad headache once after wearing it for 2 hours but I let it subside by consistently breathing and blinking more. I would also occasionally get the blurry vision out of nowhere. The frequency of getting blurry vision is slightly more than lenses with higher price tags.
Wearing these lenses, you really need to blink a lot. I would suggest wearing it no longer than 4 hours just to make sure that you don’t stress your eyes out.
So far my experience with Barbie Eyesland has been going well. The lenses are doing fine and the staffs are really quick at resolving issues. During the highest peak of CNY, they had to send out a large number of orders before PosLaju closes for CNY and because of that, I received one wrong item which I immediately messaged them about it. They were super quick about the issue and sent me the correct item a.s.a.p. when they returned to work after their CNY holidays.
My preference still stands for lenses that are slightly more expensive mainly because I have a strong preference for comfort. Not to say that these aren’t comfortable but they can definitely be more comfortable than they already are. However, if I need some affordable lenses immediately, I would buy from Barbie Eyesland. They really do arrive quickly.
- Shake the container to see if there is any tearing on the lenses. You should do this before opening the packaging so that you report product defect and exchange for a new product.
- Make sure your hands are clean before doing anything else and you have to keep the lenses either within your palms or your eyeballs. Never drop them anywhere else.
- Open the packaging, remove the lenses from it, rinse with the multipurpose solution and then place them into contact lens casing. Soak the lenses with the multipurpose solution for a few hours before wearing (sometimes I just ignore the soaking part and wear them after I’ve rinsed them with both the solutions).
- When you want to wear it, wash your hands again and take the lenses out. Remember to rinse with the multipurpose solution then saline water before applying them onto your eyes. Slowly aim your iris while you leave the other eye to see (don’t block it with your hand/palm). Keep calm when you do it and use one finger each to keep the upper lid and lower lid open if you need to. Move the lens around until it fits nicely onto your eyeball without any air bubbles.
- I use ring fingertip for lower lid while the inner side of my index finger holds my lashes and upper lid up so that everything is out of the way.
- Dump the solution in the casing, wash it and let it air dry. I always rinse the casing with the multipurpose solution before I put my lenses back in.
- The multipurpose solution is to kill germs and cleanse the lenses. Saline water allows your eyes to take in the lenses easier because it resembles tears in our eyes. I do not recommend wearing lenses directly after the multipurpose solution without rinsing with saline.
- When you want to remove it, wash your hands again, use your index fingertip to move the lenses away from your iris while you look away. Then pinch the lenses to remove it from your eyes. Once removed, rinse with multipurpose solution, rub the lenses with your fingertip to remove the protein and dirt off the lenses and then rinse one last time. Place the lenses into the casing and soak them with the multipurpose solution.
- You’re suggested to change the casing every month but I usually change it after my lenses got expired after a month or three.
- You’d get a free casing every time you buy a set of solutions.
- I do not prefer getting cheaper solutions because they don’t feel as good as those that have quality (which, unfortunately, costs a bit more too).
