Yay! I've finally got my camera back! It's the same model - Sony Cybershot W310 in classy black :)
I had to travel to a few stores to find a black model :$ I'm so picky.. I know :(
Anyhows, will be doing a review for you today on GEO's Conventional Lenses that I have purchased quite a while back for my upcoming formal :)

You can order these at very fewer websites, however, I got mine from http://www.cclens.com.au/ and it was $40 + $8 shipping.
$40 is ALOT for a pair of GEO Circle Lenses. I think it's WAY too overpriced. However, formal was around the corner and I really needed to find a distributor in Australia who has my prescriptions and the pair I wanted in stock... so yup.
Anyways... here is my experience with the Conventional Soft Lenses...
I found them to be quite uncomfortable when I just put them on.. very uncomfortable. Not to the point where it irritate my eyes, dries my eyes or make them super-duper itchy.
However, when I put them on, my eyes felt really tired and uncomfortable. Every time I blink, it seems that I really can feel the lenses... so it's not that great when you just placed them in.
After about 1 hour, the lenses became more comfortable for me to wear. It didn't make my eyes feel tired at all which was great :)
I don't wear these lenses everyday, just because I don't think I need to wear them everyday. I only wear them when my friends and I get together for a game of COD (yes! Cod!), when I'm driving or occasionally when I go out late at night... just because my vision is SO bad at night.
And to make things worse, I lost my pair of glasses Y_____Y
Yes Y____Y So when I first put them on, they are quite uncomfortable, however it gets better after an hour or so. I could wear this for the whole day without having them drying my eyes out (unless I sleep).
On my formal day, I wore them from AT LEAST 12PM till 4AM the next day without having the feeling uncomfortable after the first hour. Though, on the bus home, I fell asleep and when I woke up, my contacts disappeared and it took a few too many blinks for it to show itself :S But that's normal right?
These conventional lenses are like circle lenses with 14.00mm diameter, however, they are clear.. so yup :)
Available in 2 tints: Blue & Aqua and lasts up till 1 year after unsealing the bottle.
For your info, pinkyparadise do not carry these in their product range [unfortunately].
That is my experience with the 'Conventional' contacts!
Hope that helped you guys!
