Default Freshlook colorblends: (Review): Gemstone green, sterling grey, brillant blue.

I have tried like the title reads, FreshLook ColorBlends sterling grey, gemstone green, and brillant blue. Those are three newest colors for freshlook colorblends. The biggest issue I have with freshlook colorblends is my Blurred vision. No matter what, they blur my vision constantly and give me headaches, which is why I've given them up since they are probably not good for my eyes. The best color I liked was Sterling grey. I really liked the color they produced, it was a light grey and many people thought they were blue. However the print on the lens is not the most natural, the pupil hole is a solid circle which give it the sticker effect and the pattern is okay I suppose, but when up close to someone they would be able to tell its a contact lens. Gemstone green was also a nice color, it was a vibrant yet medium dark green color, it was very nice as well. Now for the last color...... brillant blue.... ugh, the memory of its hideous color still makes me twinge. It did not look good on my dark brown eyes, the color of the lens mixed with my dark brown eyes produced a nasty fake blue color that no person would ever have, really bad, they looked like novelty contacts. The other two looked really nice on dark brown eyes except for the technical problems i mentioned above.

It's too bad your eyesight is blurred with those contacts. This is kind of a stupid question, but I think we should just clear this up. You did get those contacts from your eye doctor right? He or she made sure the lenses fit properly before you left the office?

Yes I did, and they still caused blurred vision, I don't know why they would do this, but they do. I just don't think the brand was made for me lol

Okay, so you got the lenses from your eye doctor, he or she put them in your eyes and had you read an eye chart to make sure you could see clearly, and you could? Then you left the office and discovered that your vision was suddenly blurred? That happens sometimes. Is that what happened to you?

I've heard of that kind of thing happening too, Tony. People get new glasses or contacts, and everything's fine until they leave the office, then their vision begins to blur.

I wonder if Miros is going to respond? Where did you go, Miros? Did you go to return those lenses?

She'll be back. Maybe she's busy Christmas shopping or something.

Didn't I read in another post that FreshLook ColorBlends lenses have been discontinued? Maybe that's why.
