Dollyeye Green Review (V-209LB)

Indoors, no flash, bright lighting during daytime

EOS Dollyeye Green 14.2mm
Purchased from Tokioshine in prescription. (Tokioshine is now defunct, unfortunately.)
Diameter: 14.2mm Base Curve 8.6
Product Code: EOS V209LB

Color: 9/10

Though the color is an extremely vibrant green, it is a relatively dark color. It isn’t a very light, grey/green mix that the Geo Tri-color greens are, or the Colormax Greens (link). They’re a very pretty lens, but if you want a bright green color, I’d suggest the Geo twin greens (only available in plano though) or the colormax greens (available from cosplaylab). They do, however, look very beautiful during dusk outside.

Design: 9/10

The design is that the lenses are very opaque - meaning, no matter how light or dark your eyes are, the color will show up the same as it will on everyone. There’s also a smaller pupil hole than most lenses, giving the most amount of pigment while still being able to see.

Enlargement: 8/10

They do enlarge, but it’s only a little above average.

Comfort: 9/10

I find that out of my other 3 dollyeye lenses, this one is the one that slips the least when I put it on fresh out of the solution. It’s also quite comfortable, though I find they dry out a bit quicker than the EOS Max Pure greens I have. I have worn them for up to 8 hours with not much problem.


I really like these lenses, though it’s mostly for everyday wear. They’re a bright enough green that they pop out, but not so creepy that it’s totally unnatural. They're definitely one of my favorite lenses, and ones that I'd use for cosplay. I always get a lot of compliments when I wear these lenses since they are so vibrant but natural looking. However, again, if you are looking for BRIGHT green lenses, I'd say stick either with the Colormax green or Geo Twin greens. Compared to the EOS Max Pure Green contacts, they are definitely a lot brighter.

Check out my review and comparison photo of the EOS Max Pure Greens here.

tl;dr --
Pros: Bright vibrant green, very pretty lens, opaque, comfortable, available in prescription, brighter than EOS Max Pure Green
Cons: Not brighter than other greenish grey lenses out there, not good for cosplays needing bright bright green lenses.
