Sclera lens review

9/16/2012

Hiya!

Okei, eli nyt vähän erilaista linssiesittelyä... nimittäin sain kätösiini kauan himoitut sclera linssit!
Kuten jotkut teistä jo varmasti tietää niin on siis kyseessä "koko silmän" peittävät linssit joita näkee esim leffoissa aika useesti.

Oon aina halunnut mustat sclera linssit mutta totta puhuen nää on aivan liian kalliita meikäläisen kukkarolle. Voitte vaan kuvitella miten hypin riemusta kun mulle tarjottiin fxeyes.comista sclera paria ilmaiseksi! Jouduin tosin maksamaan näiden toimituskulut mutta se on pikkuraha verrattuna linssien hintaan.

Fxeyes tekee täysin customoituja linssejä, ja myy myös valmiita tuotteita. Valikoimaan kuuluu sclera linssien lisäksi myös luonnolliset linssit mitä upeimmissa väreissä!

Mun linssit on "Black Sclera" linssit standardi koossa, joka on 22mm


Okay, so today i will give you a little bit different lens review... because i will review sclera lenses!
As some of you already know, sclera lenses are "full eye" contacts. You see them in movies pretty often.

I've always wanted a pair of black sclera lenses, but to be honest, they are way too expensive for my wallet. You can only imagine how happy i was when fxeyes.com offered me a free pair of these!

Fxeyes makes custom lenses and also has some lenses ready for sale online. They sell sclera lenses, but also natural looking lenses, and the colors are unbelievable gorgeous!

My lenses are "Black Sclera" lenses in standard size which is 22mm.


Varmaan eka kysymys mikä teillekkin tulee mieleen on; miten nää saa päähän...

Joo no samaa mietin minä kun avasin paketin. Tiesin että noi linssit on suuret mutta en tienny että ihan NOIN valtavat. Tässä siis mun tavallinen circle linssi jonka vieressä uusi sclera linssi.


Probably the first question that you are thinking is.. "how to put them on"

Well, i was thinking about th same thing when i finally received my package. I knew that sclera lenses are big but these were HUGE. Here's a picture of my new sclera lense, and next to it is just a normal circle lense.


No enigeis, kammoksuin hetken linssien kokoa mutta uskaltauduin kuitenkin yrittämään linssin asettamista paikoilleen. Ja hupsis, se olikin ohi parissa sekunnissa. Linssi liukui melkein itsestään silmän päälle ilman suurempia vaikeuksia.


Anyways, i was a bit freaked out for a moment because of the size of these lenses, but i still had the courage to try them on. Surprisingly, they only took few seconds to insert.
Ja sitten... kun se "jeejee jumalauta mikä simmu" fiilis meni ohi niin alko paniikki että miten saan ton linssin irti... Ja se olikin jo vähän vaikeempaa. Mutta sain kuitenkin pois ilman mitään silmän puhkomisia. Treenailin sitten pari kertaa tota linssin poisottoa ja nykyään menee jo helposti.

Taking the lens off was a bit more difficult, but it only took few minutes and i didn't feel any pain or anything. I practiced the inserting and taking them off for few times and now i don't have any problems with them.
Tänään morfaannuin jonkinlaiseksi zombie Britneyksi kun meikkasin näitä linssikuvia ja videota varten. Mulla on tosiaan nykyään vaalee tukka, siitä sitten juttua myöhemmin.


Today i kinda looked like some zombie Britney when i did my makeup for these pictures and the video.




Napsin pari tällästä kämästä kuvaa aamulla. Näytän vähän peuralta ajovaloissa.

I took some crappy pictures this morning, i kinda look like a deer in the headlights.




Noniin, varmaan haluatte jotain oikeeta tietoa näistä linsseistä. Okei, nää on ihmeen mukavat päässä, vaikkakin toisinaan näkee vähän tunnelimaisesti kun pupillien reunoilla vilkkuu mustaa. Mutta sehän ei oikeastaan mitään haittaa, hyvin näkee silti!

Näitä linssejä ei saa pitää kuin noin 4-5h putkeen, ite en oo tuntia pidempään vielä näitä käyttänyt.

Hygienia on näiden kanssa erityisen tärkeää, niinkuin muidenkin linssien käytössä. Kädet pitää pestä ennen asettamista, pois ottamista jne. Näiden linssien linssinesteet pitää vaihtaa joka kerta kun linsseihin koskee, ja suosittelen muutenkin huuhtelemaan linssin linssinesteellä ennenkuin sitä lähtee asettamaan silmään. Ihan vain siksi, että nää tosiaan täyttää suurimman osan silmästä ja on hankala ottaa pois. Joten jos sinne linssin väliin joutuu jotain niin varmaan on tukalaa yrittää saada sitä jotain pois.


So, you probably want some real information about these lenses. Okay, so, these are surprisingly comfortable, even tho sometimes you may experience some "tunnel vision". 

These lenses can only be worn for 4-5hours per day.

Hygiene is really important with these lenses. You have to wash your hands everytime you want to touch the lenses. Also, you have to change the lense solution everytime you take the lenses out of the case. I also clean the lenses with solution completely on my hands before inserting them.
Wondering why these things are so important?
Well, as you know, these things cover almost your whole eyeball. Imagine that something (maybe a hair, dust or something else) gets stuck between your eye and this lens. Not so cool. Must be painful.


Vaikka näitä kutsutaan koko silmän linsseiksi, niin kyllä tuonne jää vähän valkoista reunoille. Ja hyvä niin, muuten näitä olis mahdotonta ottaa pois.

Multa on nyt varmaan sata kertaa kysytty että sattuuko nää linssit. Vastaus on; ei satu. En oo kertaakaan tuntenut minkäänlaista kipua näiden kanssa vaikka pois ottamiset yms oli aluks vähän hankalaa. Linssit ovat todella mukavat. Ehkä nää näyttää jotenkin kivuliailta? Haha

Scleralinssejä saa myös vahvuuksilla, joista mulla tosin ei ole kokemusta kun itse en vahvuuksia tarvitse.



Even tho these lenses are called "full eye" contacts, you can clearly see some white around my eyes. And that good. Because it would be impossible to get these out without having some free space around the eye.

Usually people ask me if these lenses hurt. The answer is; no, they don't. I have never experienced any kind of pain when wearing these lenses. Not even when inserting them or while taking them off. Maybe these lenses just look very painful? hahaha

You can also order sclera lenses with power, i don't haver any sight problems so i don't have experience with power scleras. They are slightly more expensive, if i remember right. Since all scleras are custom made.


Kuvailin myös lyhyen videon missä näytän vähän "muokkaamatonta" materiaalia linsseistä, elikkä elävää kuvaa. Myöskin näytän videolla linssien asettamisen paikoilleen ja pois ottamisen. Sori että näytän noin kämäseltä.


I also made a short video where i'm showing you guys some "non edited" material. Also i'm showing how to insert the lens and how to remove them.




Sitten ihan näin lopuksi; 
Varmaan kaikki ymmärrätte että näinkin suurilla linsseillä on omat terveysriskinsä, esim juurikin tuo hankautuminen, väärä koko tai vaikkapa silmien haavat/tulehdukset. Tietenkin nämä riskit koskee ihan kaikkia mahdollisia linssejä mutta haluan selventää että näin suurilla linsseillä riski on suurempi. 
Ihan vain siksi kerron, etten halua että joku käyttää paljon rahaa näihin linsseihin ja onnistuu sitten tuhoamaan omat silmänsä vain siksi ettei ole tietoinen asiasta.

Niin ja myös siksi kirjoitin että kun se joku anonyymi tulee kertomaan kuinka idiootti olen kun tungen tälläisia vapaaehtoisesti silmään; joojoo tiedetään jo, ja toistaiseksi olen vielä elossa.


FYI, i am aware of all the risks that comes with contact lenses, especially with big ones like these.
Hopefully you will also be aware of them before buying this kind of lenses. 
Thank you.

  7. As for the cleaning, it's also important that you get any residual make-up and other dirt off of them before you store them. I can recommend hydrogenperoxide solutions, I use them for my circle lenses and they basically kill everything that sticks to them :D

    I think they look eerily beautiful.

  8. Wow, those are huge.

    The hygiene bit is exactly the same as mine usual-lenses routine was, so I wonder... how do people take care of their non-sclera lenses usually :D ?
