Colored Contacts: Where to buy & Which to choose?

For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to get colored contacts. I do not need glasses but I have always wanted to brighten my eyes or even go another color. I have finally decided now is the time. I will overcome the fear of contacts.

I have spent some time searching online for best price and nice looking ones. I have narrowed down my search to two online stores and I think I have actually narrowed it down to a few different ones also. I am also trying to keep the first pair under $35 including shipping and handling.

Now why am I posting this? I would love your thoughts. Do you wear contacts? How do you like them? Are they hard to put in/take out or wear? Have you purchased from either of these online shops? Where do you buy your contacts?

Here are the few I have been thinking about. Remember I have light blue/gray eyes. My goal with my first pair is to brighten and enlarge my eyes.

The prices range from $19.90 to $21.95. Shipping is $5 at Candy Lens and $2 a pair plus $9 (flat handling) at Special Lens.

  2. I've done contacts off an on. I find getting a box of latex gloves helps with putting contacts in and taking them out. It has to do with the minor amount of static charge that helps in both endeavors. I can't stand to touch my eyes so gloves help :)

    @Joy - The milky blue and bambi blue are the two I am leaning towards the most as of right now.

    @Renee - thanks for the tip. I think the whole thought of my finger at my eye is what freaks me out. But I want to try contacts.
