    I really want to try this. But I've never heard of the company before, so I'm a bit skeptical. Sorry it's irritating, Mooms.

    Default "Big Eye" contact lenses

    BANGKOK, Thailand -- For Thai teenagers, Japan and Korea emanate all that is hip: candy-colored sneakers, saccharine-sweet pop bands, hair spiked in impossible directions.

    Now, in Bangkok's after-school hangouts, a new trend has emerged. Thanks to imported cosmetic contact lenses, girls' irises look cartoonishly huge.

    "They make my eyes so pretty and colorful," said Ganika Kamsatta, 16, still in school uniform with her boyfriend at Bangkok's Siam Square shopping plaza. "All my friends wear them."

    In Thai youth fashion, cuteness is a high commodity, and the lenses give girls twinkling doe eyes. The contacts layer their irises with colors such as "Angel Violet" and "Nudy Celeb Gold," which can be matched to the day's outfit. The wearer resembles characters from wildly popular "Anime" cartoons, a fantasy animation genre also imported from East Asia.

    "It stems from Korean pop stars and their power to influence Thai teenagers," said Patchalin Puattrakul, owner of the BigEyeShop.com, an online cosmetic lens store. "Some girls want really black eyes. They don't like the whites of their eyes. It makes them look more child-like, more adorable."

    Thailand's culture and health watchdogs, however, have campaigned against the "Big Eye" trend. A Food and Drug Administration committee is now considering tighter regulations on the contacts, which are too often used incorrectly. Teenagers who share the contacts, officials say, could also share ocular diseases and even HIV.

    Girls strolling Siam Square with "Big Eye" contacts -- there are many -- admit to minor irritations, such as discomfort and bloodshot eyes. But none confessed to swapping lenses with friends. "I'm only a little worried," said Supatcha Manusong, her eyes glittering turquoise. "We just have to be careful to keep them clean."

    Stricter import guidelines have already inconvenienced BigEyeShop.com, said Patchalin, whose orders have been delayed at customs several times. But she's hardly worried. The store continues to sell about 10 pairs each day at about $30 a pop.

    "Some girls buy two pairs each month. It's a fashion accessory," she said. "You can't wear the same set of clothes all year, right?"

    Maybe it's because they don't photograph well, but they don't look freakishly huge or anything to me. A tad bigger, but nothing too weird.

    (shrugs) I don't think I'd put a thing in my eyes that wasn't medically necessary, though. It's kinda stupid to do this just for a trend.

    They didn't look that noticeable to me, either.

    I think they make the eyes look alien like, not liking that look at all.

    Those contacts are called circle lenses. They come in all colors and different styles; not just black/brown. I considered getting some lenses, but I keep hearing it's not good for your eyes...something about not letting the eyes 'breathe'.

    I wear contacts and glasses. It's true that covering your eyes with contacts doesn't let them "breathe" so much, but it depends on the contact lens. Some are thinner, some thicker--some are more permeable or whatever. I have no clue what category these fall into.

    But as long as you don't keep them on all day and all night every day, you'll be fine unless there is something wrong with your eyes, like dry eye syndrome.

    If you like these, I'd say just try it out. If your eyes start bothering you, wear them less often.

    These are the same as other contact lenses (same size, material, etc)...but because people see them as cosmetic they tend to share them or not take care of them as well.

    EW! Double ew!

    I only buy disposable contact lenses, so I take almost no care of my lenses. My doc says that's almost all he sells nowadays.
