First time lens buyer.

I'm looking at gray lenses from Candy Lens, specifically the Geo Extra Crystal Nudy Gray circle lense.

1) Has anyone ordered from this site, and if so, how was your experience?
2) Any other recs for gray lenses in the $20ish range? I have blue-green eyes and I really want to make them pop.
3) I've never worn contacts before, are circle lenses comfortable and easy to wear? I do have slight astigmatism but I'm getting plano lenses since I wear eyeglasses.

4) My insurance doesn't cover contact exams and before I buy any lenses, I think it's in my best interest to at least find out my base curve so that I don't injure my eye at all. Anyone know where I can get a lens exam for not too much money? I think Costco does it for $55, which isn't too bad, but I don't know if Walmart or Target does it for cheaper.

I can answer your 2 and 3 since I haven't bought from them before :P

2. Prices for lenses all depend on the seller/website, so really it's just picking a type of lens and then looking for it online. Some sellers will price it $30 and others will price it $20. There's no 'set' price for lenses.

3. Circle lenses and how comfortable they are all depend on the person, so it can be comfortable on you, but irritating for someone else. They're just like conventional soft contacts, and take time to get used to.

Yeah, I figured that the people with more experience would know general pricing.

I'm going to shop around for a cheap contact exam to find out my base curve before I buy anything, just in case. I think Costco does them for $55.

I know that wearing the wrong size lens can hurt your eyes and I don't want to risk it.
