I got my very first pair of contacts from pinky paradise this year.
They were fantastic! I would highly recommend them.

The diameter thing, is it important to know what number you are ?

Yes! I would say before ordering them at all, get your eyes measured and checked by an optometrist so that you know the numbers you would need to order. Also once you order, take them in to the optometrist to get them checked and cleaned as well. Some lenses can still contain dust or other particles. It's a good idea just to have them do a once over to see if they can fit you, some times they get cut weirdly, not always. Friend of mine ordered a pair off of ebay (worst decision she made) and they gave her the wrong sizes.

Oh yeah I should have mentioned that. Do not buy contacts without seeing an optometrist. You may find out you can't wear them, or that you have an astigmatism, etc. They will also tell you proper lens care and wear.

Sorry to bring out an old thread, but I didn't see a point in making a new one over this so! My question is - I have astigmatism, but I don't want to pay for the prescription. I have seen Toric contacts available at pinky paradise etc and I think you can get them as plano...

I was just wondering if that work? Or if any circle lenses will do if I don't want prescription?

I have friends who wear glasses, and say they have astigmatism, but get normal circle lenses and are fine... but i'd rather not risk messing up my eyes... thoughts? Thank you!

Hey! I have an astigmatism and I'm -0.05 in both eyes. The toric lenses on Pinky have not so good reviews, so I've never bought them. I just buy the normal circle lenses in my prescript. The -0.05 correction enables me to see clearly, but there is no correction for the astigmatism part. So I do see the "ghosting" and it's pretty annoying on high contrasting text or anything that glows. In general it really doesn't bother me or is always noticeable.

My husband also has an astigmatism, but his is so mild that his optometrist told him to save his money and just use regular contacts. Mine is bad enough that I do use toric lenses for my every day contacts.

So it really depends on the person. As long as you've been to the optometrist and they've given you the okay to wear contact then you should be fine. Just follow all the contact rules and you'll be fine.
