EOS Adela Green Lenses

Hello! Time for a lens review :) Today I'll be reviewing the new range from EOS called Adela and the pair that I received from MukuCHU was the green pair. They're currently not in stock however they are available for pre-order if you're interested.

SHELF LIFE: 3 YEARS
MANUFACTURER / ORIGIN: SOUTH KOREA
MATERIALS: 2Hema

DIAMETER: 14.8mm
WATER CONTENT: 38%

Source: MukuCHU

I've noticed that new lens styles and patterns have become more fancy and less 'natural-looking' which I totally don't mind because these days if I want to wear circle lenses, I wouldn't bother with a 'natural-looking' colour or pattern i.e. brown... something because I don't need to wear glasses or lenses (my vision is fine) and natural lenses don't make much difference to my eyes... to me anyway.

Also, most new style of lenses are plano only (perhaps they want to see how well they sell first and then introduce prescriptions?) which again is perfect for me but those who do need prescription I assume would need to wear glasses while wearing the lenses.

Anyway, enough rambling. Let's get onto the review!

Sup. Here is a picture of myself with the lenses on
(I know the watermark is placed quite oddly... on my chest lol)
Excuse my static hair~

I want to talk about the pattern first. Like wow, it looks cool! It looks quite subtle on my dark eyes but close up you can probably see how detailed the pattern is. The detail of the lines and also the mix of green shades - lighter towards the middle and darker around the outside.

I don't find them tooooo freaky... I like the dark spots (if my eyes were naturally blue/green, maybe those spots would be blue/green instead)


14.8mm... average diameter for these 'new style' lenses. I rarely see 14.00 or 14.5mm diameter ones these days (and yes they do still exist). They don't seem to be too enlarging but there is definite enlargement. It doesn't look like I'm staring into your soul, does it? I am glad that they don't have the black limbal ring around them or else it may seem too overwhelming with the intricate pattern and the obvious enlarging factor. Good design work, EOS.

An actual expiry date - is this something new? I think it is!

If you are a lens wearer, you would be aware that lenses have an expiry year. With circle lenses, they are to be disposed of within one year of opening and have a shelf life of 3 years. Normally with lens vials I see the year of manufacture and/or year of expiry and the month. I noticed that with the EOS Adela lens vials that I received, they have a printed expiry date with the day too. I don't know why I found this to be so fascinating haha... I guess it's because it's usually just food and beverages that have exact expiry dates. So now I know for this certain pair of lenses, they would expire on the 24th of July in 2015.


Last but not least - the colour! This deep green is gorgeous. I don't think it looks crazy at all over my dark eyes and it blends wonderfully. The lenses don't scream out at you... in fact I reckon it does the complete opposite. They give me an innocent, doe-eyed look :)

I would definitely recommend them. As always, I applaud EOS for having such thin and comfortable circle lenses - they're one of my favourite brands and their extensive range of designs is impressive.

  3. The pattern so so pretty. :o I've been noticing a lot of patterned and large lenses myself. The bigger the better it seems to be nowadays...:)
    2015 is a pretty long lifespan for these lenses! Interesting that they're able to last for so long!
