    Comparing Solitica Hidrocor Mel to Freshlook (not sure if it is Colorblend or not):

    you have to cut and paste the links, it won't let me embed the images... or maybe i'm just doing it wrong.
    Maybe you can just tell us what's on those pages. Sometimes people don't trust links to other sites. Others may just be impatient. Would you mind?

    oh yes, i forgot about all the spammers on this forum!
    I would embed the pics but when I try I get "all rights reserved", so I guess it wasn't my fault - they can't be embedded.

    Perhaps if I take a screenshot, it will work....

    In any case, the first pic shows a comparison of the same eye wearing Solotica vs Freshlook and the second pic shows a comparison (I don't think the exact same eye) between the same line of Solotica (Hidrocor Mel) and a green Coopervision Expression lens...well a pic is worth a thousand words so i'll try to figure out a way!

    the effect in my opinion is much softer and more realistic with the soloticalenses. Ive actually seen patients with that eye color and effect where there is a little brown mixed in.

    the picture on the left loooks much more artificial.

    That first picture looks very different than most of the ones I've seen of the Mel color. I wonder if it's an old photo. Most of the pics I've seen recently show the Mel color as a dark brownish/yellowish green. But then, I've heard that Solotica has had some issues with color inconsistencies and varying opacity, so maybe the Mels look very different from batch to batch. They sure look nice in these pics!

    Haha I am a proud Solitca-person

    I think mb the Mel looks lighter because this particular eye is a golden brown. Mels looks so absolutely gorgous on some people and pea-green on others....also I am afraid of getting yellow leakage on the whites of my eyes because of my smallish irises, that would be gross

    Agreed...if thers alot of lens movement like one of the pictures above it makes it look doubly fake. Steeper base curves need to be used for fitting that eye.

    I'm not worried about lens movement (luckily Soloticas fit me quite well) as much as the colored part of the lens being larger than my iris. My irises are on the small side (something I never new before my foray into the world of color contact forums).
    I saw a woman with small irises wearing Solotica Hidrocor Mels and it looked really weird - like she had liver disease or something!
    Unfortunately there is no way to really know for sure without buying the lens....unless someone out there measures the colored part of their hidrocor (hint, hint).
    The diameter of the lens is useless info.

    yes i tend to agree with this....opaque lenses have to fit still...without alot of lens movement and the pupil hole needs to be more feathered to blend more with a brown eye.

    This is where i think alot of opaque lenses fail....I use to wear cibavision illusions....They were made with a grey grid to mimic and cover the iris underneath with a cibasoft tint on top. The great thing about illusions is that it blended away the pupil hole so that you could not see brown showing thru. unfortunately nobody worldwide has this tint technology. The illusions soft blue really looked like a light baby blue eye.

    You do realise there is no such word "alot"?

    How about my question? Is the pic accurate of a solotica hidrocor or has this been touched up?

    I think I will once I've had my annual check up! I'm testing el cheapo options at the moment, just to get a feel for what works and what doesn't.
