Hi liB. Welcome to Lens 101. It's nice to have you here. Your English is fine. Now let me see if I can answer your questions.

I can buy colored lenses of Solotika without number? If by "without a number" you mean "without a prescription" then the answer is no if you're ordering from a US company, but wrlens is not a US company (see below).

Is the lens of Solotika Comfort? How many hours you can put them without feeling burning in your eyes? I've never worn Solotica lenses, but some Lens 101 members do. Whether they'll be comfortable to you and how long you can wear them in a day, well, you won't know until you try.

They have the approval of the FDA? According to this thread in Lens 101, no, Solotica lenses are not FDA approved. http://www.lens101.com/color-contact-lenses/116358-solotica-light-eyes-please-help.html

What color is the most natural looking green on dark brown eyes? Natural colors mel or Hidrocharme mel or Solflex natural colors verde or Hidrocor verde? It's hard to say how these lenses will look on your eyes, and I'm not sure what you mean by "natural."

You know the site wrlens? Is he reliable? Good question. People have posted here on Lens 101 that they've ordered from them and they were satisfied with the service they got, but when I did a Google search for "wrlens" the second result I got (just below their home page) was "Wrlens Is A Scam. PROOF." I went to that site and someone was given the wrong lenses and could not get the problem corrected.
Then there were a few YouTube results followed by a result in ripoffreport.com that says "If you want to lose your money or receive defected [contact] lens, buy from Wrlens.com!!!"

Finally, did you know that wrlens is headquartered in Brazil?

By the way,
Here's a picture of my eyes.

Thank you all! Love!

-->Yes, you can buy Solotica lenses with no power or number (+-0.00). I know lensmarketplace.com sells them, and probably some other places as well. The delivery is faster with no power lenses because they keep them in stock and don't have to order them.

-->I find the Solotica Natural Colors lenses extremely comfortable. I often wear them for 12-14 hours at a time with no dryness or burning.

-->They are not FDA approved, because they are not sold in the US, but that doesn't mean there is some sort of problem with them. Perhaps they just haven't sought FDA approval.

-->When trying to choose what color to get, be sure to look at more than what's on the sites that are selling them. Those pictures really don't give an accurate impression of how they will look on the eyes. Instead, spend some time on this site searching threads about Solotica lenses, and you'll find non-retouched photos of lens101 members wearing different colored lenses. Also, there are a lot of videos on YouTube that will give you a good idea of the color.

-->One word of caution: for some reason, they say the "Verde" lenses are not recommended for people with really dark eyes. I think maybe the dark from your natural eye and also the large clear pupil hole where your brown eyes show through might make them look really fake. It's too bad, because the color on the website looks awesome.

-->You might want to consider Esmeralda in the Solotica Natural Colors line. It's a nice shade of green and looks pretty natural. The pupil hole is very small, so hardly any of your natural color shows through.

-->I've never ordered from wrlens, but, like FaceofBoe said, I've read both very good and very bad things about them, so that makes me not want to risk ordering from then. I had a very positive experience with lensmarketplace, and other users on lens101 have found several different websites that sell Solotica that have been really good.

Good luck to you. Let us know what you end up buying, and if possible, post a picture so we can see how great they look!

P.S. Your English is not bad at all! I hope what I wrote is easy for you to understand. If it doesn't make sense, let me know and I'll try to say it another way.

Wow how cute you are!
Thanks for your help!!

Now I have a few more questions lol
How to color quartzo? It will look natural on my eyes? I looked with some pictures and it looks very nice! The problem is that all the pictures I've seen are with the lenses, and I do not know what color were their natural eyes.

Lensmarketplace site is reliable? I need a prescription to buy color lenses?

Thank you all!!

The color quartzo looks really nice in all the pictures I've seen, and, for some reason, it is one of only a few colors that Solotica makes with a really small pupil hole, so it looks very, very natural. Hardly any of the natural color of the eyes shows through. Check this thread: http://www.lens101.com/introductions/131729-hello-everyone.html#post194881
There is a post by lens101 member Sylvia with several pictures. The last one is of her twin sister wearing the Quartzos. Both of them have naturally dark brown eyes. That picture makes me really want to order Quartzos! But looking at Sylvia's pictures of her Topazios makes me want those too! Both of those colors, as well as Esmeralda and possibly Ice (in the Natural Colors lenses), have the small pupil hole.

You don't need a prescription to order from lensmarketplace because it isn't required in the country where they are located (Brazil). But it's important that you see an eye care professional before you order so you know if it is safe for you to wear any contact lenses, and if the base curve and diameter of these lenses would be a good fit for your eyes. Even if you aren't getting vision correction, you still need an exam to determine the best fitting lens. The doctor can write a prescription with no power, but it will have the numbers for your base curve and diameter. I also recommend visiting an eye doctor after you get your lenses, so they can be sure the lenses fit well. A poorly fitting lens can damage your eyes, and we don't want that!

I've only ordered one time from lensmarketplace, and it was a very good experience - good price, good communication, order filled properly, product was as advertised, shipping time was reasonable (considering it was an international order). Other members here have ordered many times from them and I can't recall reading anything bad about them. You might want to wait a bit to see if any other members respond who may have had negative experiences. Good luck!

What is curve and diameter?

How can my doctor know if it appropriate for me?

Have written information on the lens and the material of which they were made? So I can show to the doctor?

In the past I was wearing lenses And I have not consulted with doctors and everything was fine

By the way

What kind of lenses were those? I think you'll be a lot happier with Solotica. The pupil hole will be smaller than what you had, so less of your natural brown color will show through. This makes the contacts look much more natural.

I'm not an eye care professional, but I'll tell you what I have been told about why it's important to see a doctor before wearing contacts.

The base curve is the measurement the doctor takes that tells how steep the curve of your eyeball is. I guess some people have eyeballs that are more "flat" than others. This is important when wearing contact lenses, because if you buy a lens that has a base curve that is too flat, the lenses will fit too loosely and slide all over your eyeball. It will be uncomfortable, you won't see well, and it will look bad. If you buy a lens with a base curve that is too steep, the lenses won't slide, and they won't necessarily be uncomfortable, but they will fit extremely tight on your eyeball, almost like a suction fit. This can cause your eyes to not get enough oxygen, and this can lead to medical problems, including possible corneal damage - nothing to mess with.

The diameter measurement tells the size of your iris (the colored part of your eye). Not everyone has the same size. I believe the reason this is important with colored lenses is because, if the colored lens is smaller than your iris diameter, you will have a ring of brown showing on the outside of the lens. If the diameter is bigger than your iris, the color of the contact would overlap on to the sclera (the white part of your eye) and that might look strange too.

Solotica lenses are made in the most common base curve and diameter, so they fit *most* people. Maybe your other lenses were like that too, and that's why you didn't have a problem. But unless you see a qualified eye care professional, how will you know? The material the Solotica Natural Colors lenses are made from is: 62% Polymacon, Hydration: 38%, and the measurements are: Diameter: 14.2 mm, Base curve: 8.7.

Hope this helps!

Hanita Lenses are an Israeli company, but they do not produce the kind of person. That's why I need new lenses.
Now I look on the box of my old lenses and I see
8.60 curve
14.0 diameter
And materials are those materials
I can conclude that for solotica?

Thank you for that good explanation of why knowing your base curve and diameter are important when buying contact lenses. I hope it discourages people from trying to get contact lenses without seeing a doctor first.

Base Curve doesn't have be exact so you should be fine with Soloticas at 8.7

My BC is 8.6 and Soloticas fit me just fine

You might want to order from Viallure.com instead of Lens marketplace though, because of the shipping time.
Last time I ordered Waicons from Lens Marketplace and the shipping was fast, but I ordered Soloticas 12/20 and they still haven't even shipped--turns out it takes 2-3 weeks for them to get the Soloticas from the manufacturer which is annoying =/

Doesn't a prescription list a brand name, too? Did you doctor prescribe Soloticas with a base curve of 8.6? Of not, how did you get them?

Soloticas are not available in the US--you can only order them online---Prescriptions are not required in those countries

I have been wearing contacts for 16 years and have been prescribed lenses with base curves between 8.5-8.7--it depends on the material and the brand. Most people's base curves are in that range and they can wear a lens in that range without problems. If your base curve is 8.3 though you would probably find that the Soliticas slide a lot--not dangerous to your eye but not an attractive look

That makes me wonder. The US requires a prescription for every contact lens order, so does that mean that American contact lens sellers are too careful, or that the other countries aren't careful enough?
As an American citizen, I know what my answer is . . .

*sigh* americans are so arrogant. As an american I'm allowed to say that lol


Americans love to hire lawyers and sue for millions of dollars for something that happened because of their own stupidity. That is why shampoo bottles have to specify that they are for external use only, and that is why contacts must be bought with a prescription. In other countries, if you are dumb enough to buy a contact lens in the wrong power and base curve and suffer health consequences, you have no one to blame besides yourself. In America, you would be a millionaire.

That is also the reason why all of these American vial lenses that have been beloved for so many years are being discontinued, leading more and more people to the international market. Simply, they don't trust us to know how to sterilize a lens and take care of it so that it lasts a year.

If you buy contacts from another country from a respected brand and a trustworthy website you have nothing to worry about--as long as you know your power and base curve of course.

So it's not that American sellers are too careful, they're just afraid of being sued?

It is that American sellers must obey American laws--the laws are in place in order to prevent lawsuits

America is one of the only countries in the world that requires a prescription to buy contacts that must be updated once a year. People in other countries do not have these restrictions and yet somehow they manage not to blind themselves.

Umm of course AMERICAN sellers should obey AMERICAN laws, especially since those laws are protecting them from being sued--but it is ignorant to imply that buying contact lenses from other countries is dangerous simply because they are not subject to American laws.
On the forum I have heard countless times that you shouldn't trust brands like Waicon or Solotica because any site that will sell you contacts without a prescription is untrustworthy. Such assumptions are ludicrous--the majority of countries do not require a prescription for purchase of contact lenses. It is perfectly legal to buy contacts from outside of the US without a prescription, neither side is breaking the law.

Bausch & Lomb and Acuvue have colored (and circle) lenses available for purchase without a prescription overseas that are not available in the US--does that mean that these companies are producing lenses that will injure your eyes?

The American requirement for a prescription may not be due to anything wrong with the lenses, but--I speak as an American--it might have something to do with the people who will potentially wear them.

Very true, and also the propensity for stupid people to look for someone to blame for their own stupid choices!

That's very sad, but very true for some people.

Me, personally . . . I'd rather just say "It's my fault, I was being stupid" than to say "It's your fault this happened!" only to have someone calmly say, "No, really it's your fault. The evidence is irrefutable. If you had been doing what you were supposed to be doing, this wouldn't have happened."

I hate it when that happens . . .

Thumbs up My personal experience...

Ordered my Solotica Hidrocor lenses (marine) through lensmarketplace dot com and sent USPS, basically snail mail and received them 2 weeks later.. they send them 'Registered Mail' which means I had to sign and that's great. They were definitely worth the wait and dealing with Alex was a pleasure. Extremely helpful and friendly individual.

If you're going to order Internationally, I suggest giving these guys a try. They came in all original packaging, everything included. All you need to invest in now is some contact lens solution for cleaning.

These lenses are beautiful if you want a happy medium between blue and green or somewhere between lighter and darker (deeper).. they're bright but still deep and colorful. This used to be the natural color of my eyes, so I know it's very close to REAL and they blend in nicely with my color now which has developed flecks of yellow and I can see hints of yellow through the lenses, very pretty!

Thanks lensmarketplace!
Seattle, Wa

p.s. Because my experience was so positive, and Alex professional and courteous, I thought I'd share. This report doesn't make sense as far as my experience went. I've heard of companies filing false reviews to harm the competition and maybe that's exactly what's going on here. Just a thought. I'm ordering more lenses from them.

Default Solotica Hidrocor

To answer your Q: They are super natural and feel comfy once you've had them on a few minutes.. they settle on nicely over your eyes.

You can buy Solitica through lensmarketplace, not sure what you mean about a number?

If you lubricate your eyes hourly with drops, there should be no irritation.

Not sure why they wouldn't have been approved.. but they are more comfortable than most lenses I've tried and seem to have a longer good-thru date to expiration.

I've heard Mel is a great color for that, but the Hidrocor Verde or Marine is beautiful and so natural looking.

Do not order from Wrlens... it is not reliable. Order from lensmarketplace and be prepared to wait to receive your lenses.. can take some time!

I want to buy green colored lenses without number, and after searching in Internet I saw the lenses of Solotika look very natural.
And now I have some questions ... and I hope you can help me please ...

I can buy colored lenses of Solotika without number?

Is the lens of Solotika Comfort? How many hours you can put them without feeling burning in your eyes?

They have the approval of the FDA?

What color is the most natural looking green on dark brown eyes? Natural colors mel or Hidrocharme mel or Solflex natural colors verde or Hidrocor verde?

You know the site wrlens? Is he reliable?


By the way,
Here's a picture of my eyes.

Thank you all! Love!

You can buy Solitica through lensmarketplace, not sure what you mean about a number?
If I'm not mistaken, a "number" is a prescription.
