How to choose the right eye size for my doll?
Normally we describe an eye size like “14-7mm”. The first number “14” stands for the diameter of the eye base/eyeball. The “7” stands for the pupil diameter.
We can make BJD eyes in base sizes ranging from 2mm~24mm. Please make sure the size you order fits well for your doll.
*Not every style can make in all sizes, it depends on different styles, just check the size variation option on the specific style.
What’s the difference between different pupil sizes with the same base size?
Normally the ratio of Base: Pupil is 2：1，like 16-8, 14-7, 12-6. When you attach a bigger pupil eye like 16-10, 14-9, 12-8, that will make your doll look cute, like a cartoon character; while if you attach a smaller pupil eye, that will make your doll look sharper and realistic, like a real human.
Can I customize BJD eyes with my own ideas?
Sure. Though we already have many series of eye styles, you can customize the base shape, base color, pupil colors, pupil styles, and contents in the pupil.
Styes: Realistic eye, Diamond eye, Animal eye, Flower eye, 3D eyes, Flat eye, Glass-Like eye, Sick eye, Blood eye, Cartoon eye

How to keep BJD eyes?
Most of the BJD doll eyes are made of resin and all resin will fade (get a little bit yellow) over time. Though we choose good materials to slow down this process, it will still happen about one year later. So please take care of these resin eyes, do not put them in sunshine or hot place for a long time. Also, some eyes are made of plaster and not waterproof, so keep them away from water and moisture.
