Circle Contact Lenses: What's up with that?

8.03.2010

I've seen many strange fads make their way across the country. In the '80s, there was the Valley Girl craze. Girls - myself included - talked like Valley Girl's, dressed like Valley Girl's, ate like Valley Girls (cold pizza and Pepsi for breakfast anyone?), and we even bought Moon Unit Zappa's Valley Girl book just so we would get it right. We considered it the holy grail of Valley Girlism. 

Parachute pants? I was all over that and, darnit, I looked great in them. 

I'm usually all for self expression until something comes along that has the potential for causing damage, and that's exactly what could happen if you are wearing circle contact lenses. Lady Gaga somehow managed to popularize the craze among young girls. I like to think it was unintentional, but Gaga should know by now that whatever she does, fans will follow her lead. These bad boys could cause you to go blind, and who wants to go blind so young?
