Default Freshlook Colourblends

I ordered these in monthly disposable, they arrived today, and are very very flimsy, especially the left one. They feel similar to the Dailies I tried in when I had my teach session with optician. My AirOptix Aqua were more solid and not at all flimsy, only had trouble with them after wearing for 2weeks 3 days(trail with fortnightly disposables)

I tried colourblends in, went in fine, applied make-up to take pics (I look awful with makeup but even worse without!)
When I tried putting them back in, they kept folding when I blinked and sticking to lower lashes, falling out of eye. I had to smooth them over eye to make them stick, so makes me think they sent dailies by mistake as I never had this trouble with the others.

I paid 14 for them, wereas optician charges 20 for them.

Are your colourblend monthlys this thin? Maybe I just need to be very careful with them?

There's a question very similar to yours about FreshLook Raidiance lenses here on Lens 101. Maybe this will help:

http://www.lens101.com/freshlook-radiance/19902-freshlook-radiance-floppy.html

As for the price, it's not unusual for eye doctors to charge more than a websites, because doctors have things to pay for things like electricity and staff, while Webmasters don't.

I'm getting the hang of inserting them now, just needed patience and care. They do roll though and half the battle is getting them sat right on my finger.

Do you put them on a wet finger? If you do, then maybe a dry finger will give you more stability.

Hang in there, atryec. You'll get the hang of it in no time.

No, I'm right handed, so use my little finger to nudge the lense upwards enough to grab it with left fingers, flick off as much solution as possible my wobbling it to and fro for a few seconds, not very good with floppy lenses hahahaha then pop it onto right forefinger tip.

Is that when you put them in or take them out? In your reply to FaceofBoe it sounded like you're having a problem taking them out, but here you speak of inserting them.

They can be fidly both going in and after removal. The left one curls in on itself when I have it in palm and squirt with solution to clean. Actually removing them is not a prblem.

Hi atryec. This is an active thread. Thanks for participating.

I looked up the issue about your curling contact lens on Google and everyone's talking about how the lenses curl up when they're inside out. I kept looking for a better answer, then it hit me. Could it be that as your cleaning your lenses you accidentally are pushing them inside out? It's a stretch, but it the only way I can connect your question with what I found in my search.

Not sure, but I'll definately check tomorrow when I take them out (they're already out for the night now)
I know when I put it in the storage pot it's right way out.

I love the way the British talk.

Let us know if it turns out that your lenses flip "wrong way out" when you try to put them in.

They are definately the right way out when I'm putting them in.

I must say I've gotten the hang of putting these in first go now. I guess it just took a little practise.

Not many people in work noticed the change in colour, those that did loved them

Cool. It sounds like you're on your way to a happy relationship with your contact lenses. I hope the information you found here was helpful.

I came up with an issue

One of my lenses flipped wrong side out, I flipped it the right way out (or so I thought) and after an hour it felt uncomfortable in my eye, so I flipped it again.
The problem is this, normally, with my airoptix lenses, when they are inside out, and you look at it sat on your finger, you can clearly see it's wrong way out, but with these colourblends, they look exactly the same either way, so I'm always confused as to whether theyre the right way out

No other problems though, easy in, easy out

I'm guessing the the color isn't a little lighter on the inside of the lens? Have you read the other posts on this site about checking to see if your contact lenses are inside out?

That's a cool idea, although it may not work so well for LeeRoberts up there.

Did you use some kind of Internet anagram generator, or did you do that yourself?

No, a friend thought it up for me years ago.

Funny, as I happen to like a band called Atreyu too, quite similar

Not found anything

But taking the grey ones out after work today, the right one managed to flip inside out when I was rinsing it after cleaning. I could see a difference in shape, and a slight difference in shade. The gemstone ones I really couldn't tell.

What about some of the other posts here about inside out contact lenses? Like this one?

I've never done it, I think it's kind of a "shaking" movement, as though shaking off the excess solution.

That makes sense. How many different ways can you get excess moisture off of a contact lens?

I dunno, I would think that the shaking thing would be all you would need. I wouldn't recommend a blow dryer.

No, that would probably just knock it on the floor, and you wouldn't want that to happen.

Just wanted to say, after using colourblends for a few months now, I know when they are inside out, as it feels itchy, so if Itake it out, flip over, back in, yay fine.

And they have gotten easier to get in also, flimsyness isnt an issue.

Have dropped one once, and was a fast mission to retrieve it before the dog ate it!

Nice move, atryec. Way to keep the lens from the dog. What is it about dogs eating anything that drops on the floor anyway? Something hits the floor, Fido doesn't sniff it first, he just gobbles it up, just in case it might be something edible.

Anyway, this isn't a dog forum. I have another question. Is there a way you can tell your contacts are inside out before they make your eyes itch? When you put your contacts in inside out, do they start to itch right away or does it take a few seconds?

When i put the lense in, after blinking a few times, if it doesnt feel comfy, I take it out and flip it. if it feels ok I clearly know it was wrong way round.

I can't tell by looking lol

So it's kind of a trial-and-error thing. Put it in and then check to see how it feels, right?

I disagree about them being hideous. What do you consider hideous about them?
I like how they fit, and look.

I've not tried freshkon lenses, and will admitt the colours look great, I may try them in the future, but for now I'm happy with colourblends.

I guess everyone's entitled to their opinion. In my opinion, the ColorBlends look very nice. These are the Amethyst ones.

Wow, those are some nice contact lenses. It's a unique color, but it doesn't look fake.

Hmmm that pic looks like an airbrush promo pic to me


Here is a green eyed girl wearing the amethyst

And a brown eyed girl wearing them, on brown eyes they just give a hint of purple

Yeah, that girl's skin does look unnaturally smooth, now that you mention it. Thanks for providing more pictures.

I like how they fit, and look.

I've not tried freshkon lenses, and will admitt the colours look great, I may try them in the future, but for now I'm happy with colourblends.
with the excepetion of the three new shades color blends look muddy on my and in natural light u can hardly tell there is even a difference. I have med brown eyes and they are not opaque enough for my eyes to even make a difference.

Freshkon colors fusion dazzlers are oqaque, blend better, yet vibrant with a total color change.

I think part of the reason for the difference of opinion, aside from, well...the inherently subjective nature of opinions is that, if I recall correctly, atryec has naturally green eyes. I think the FreshLook ColorBlends look pretty good on people with naturally blue or green eyes, and on atryec, all the colors she's modeled here look really nice. It's the brown or hazel-eyed people that usually get the "muddy" effect, or no color change at all. Also, a lot of people don't like the larger pupil hole on the FreshLooks.

Question for luvbostonxo2's: what are the pupil holes like on the Freshkon colors fusion dazzlers you love so much? How do they compare with the small ones on the Solotica Topazios, Quartzos and Esmeraldas? They're inexpensive enough that I'd consider trying them, but I can't seem to find any photos of the Freshkons except for doctored retail pics, which are no help at all. Would you be willing to post some authentic photos of them? Where is a good place to buy Freshkons from? How are the quality control standards in Malaysia? I'm a little nervous because there's very little info online about them, aside from places selling them. In fact, you're the only person I've ever even seen recommend them. Are you from Malaysia?

I tried colourblends in, went in fine, applied make-up to take pics (I look awful with makeup but even worse without!)
When I tried putting them back in, they kept folding when I blinked and sticking to lower lashes, falling out of eye. I had to smooth them over eye to make them stick, so makes me think they sent dailies by mistake as I never had this trouble with the others.

I paid 14 for them, wereas optician charges 20 for them.

Are your colourblend monthlys this thin? Maybe I just need to be very careful with them?
Hi,

I do have the freshlook Colorblends, and I totally dislike them, they are so thin, they tear very easily, I can't tell you how many lense I had wasted due to this tearing problems. Personally I also do not find them very comfortable at all, i have been wearing them for a year , but i finally ordered a different brand. Good luck with them.

Sorry those FreshLook ColorBlends didn't work out for you, Mickey. How do you like the new ones?
