According to magazine reports, he did not like the contacts he wore as it stung his eyes. The reasons are unclear but what is known is that when contacts are properly cared for, they should not cause any discomfort to the eyes. Contact lenses should always be properly cared for as emphasized by CosplayLens.com
When the filmmaker were filming the movie, they decided that CGI effect would not be the best way to enhance the look or Orlando’s eyes. As such, he was instructed to wear those lenses. Besides, this would have saved the trouble of the FX team who already had their hands tied on handling the animation and other special effect aspects of the movie.
2. Kanye West
