Do you want anime eyes? Here's your chance ~

Wide-eyed and not-so-innocent?

Anyone who's seen Japanese comics, cartoon videos, anime art or - Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" video - will instantly be struck by the uncommon look of the girls - big eyes that, by making the rest of the face look small, add the cuteness and sex appeal prized by many Japanese men. Since no amount of cosmetic surgery will make actual human eyes larger, some girls are trying another way to up their cute quotient: extra-wide contact lenses!

The extra-wide contact lenses are made by a variety of companies including Geo and Dueba, and cost in the $30-$50 per pair range. It seems they're not just cosmetic - send in your prescription and the lenses will be made to order.

  • Nah..but thanks!! I I have heard that not only are they unregulated, but a lot of opticians/ophthalmologists are concerned that people buying them off the internet are not fitted for them and that can damage the eye.
