I've just finished doing that (and Charmed Life, and I'm now halfway
through The Lives of Christopher Chant).

It does say somewhere that the Lees are descended from "a nice young
Chinese man"; so that may be it.

There's a girl in my daughter's class whose mother is half-Chinese
and half-Dutch and her father is (I think) Turkish; she looks kind of
mediterranean, but with a marked eye-fold. *She* could be a Lee!

My conception of it is a force-field eye-glass that extends all
around the eye, like an invisible glass cup. When Jonathan puts on
the mind-shield suit, it interferes with it; if it was a contact
lens, it would be well inside the head covering. Of course, it might
be the shielding itself interfering, but I get a distinct impression
that it's a simple case of something physical trying to occupy the
same place. Also, Vivian sees it shimmer in front of his eyes; you
don't usually see contact lenses unless you're looking directly into
someone's eyes.
