Note : If my eye makeup and undereye concealer seem neither here nor there, or I look cross-eyed, try inserting and removing 3 pairs of lenses between running to the loo for best lighting. Nuff said.
Please read THIS if you wear or intend to wear circle lenses for more than 3 hours, especially the part on LENS BASE CURVE and ASTIGMATISM....You're blessed with ONLY one pair of eyes......Treasure Your Vision...FYI, I wear these thrice a week at most, and never more than 5 hours (if that) at one time.

I got these from Pinky Paradise and a short review of them is in my "Review: GEO Circle Lenses (Part 1)".
Check it out!
I don't want to sound conceited, but after trying out numerous pairs of circle lenses, I have come to realise that my irises are of decent-size :P Maybe a tiny bit above average. If they came out with 13.5 mm lenses, I'd jump for joy ^_^
ALL lenses chosen are 14 mm in diameter, and that's as far I can go without looking overly freaky. As it is, I don't think I have much "white area" to work with.
And why mostly brown lenses? Because I'm approaching my mid-30s, and I have nowhere to wear rainbow lenses. It's a no-brainer when it comes to colour selection, really...
If you feel uncomfortable with the lenses fresh from the sealed glass jars, try soaking them in your usual lens solution for several days - it helps (Scouts honour - GEO Honey Wing was awful when "fresh"). If you STILL feel discomfort, something's wrong, ok? Common sense, yo!
is very VeRy VERY subjective - what I deem as natural might not be for others, and vice-versa. Also, it depends on the size of your eye/iris. Of course I had to find out the hard way...Sigh...
I don't believe there's a thickness measurement, but I can definitely tell the difference when I clean, insert and wear them.
- "Halo Effect":
An effect produced by a pair of lenses with the extended colouring, but without the dark limbal ring. At the bottom [and often, sides] of the lens, a light coloured crescent is visible. This is caused by the lens' colour going beyond the iris, and over the white of the eye. Over such a light colour (white), the lens' colour looks super light compared to the rest of it, which is over your darker iris.
However, not everyone gets the halo effect, even from the same lens of the same size. If the lens' colour doesn't go too far from your iris' edge, then you won't have one, or not a very big effect. The smaller your eye is, compared to the lens size, the bigger the halo. (Extracted from here)
