I made these into defaults for personal use, and since then I’ve seen a few people ask where I got the eyes. I e-mailed Helaene and she said it would be alright if I went ahead and posted these as defaults. The non-defaults in many other equally beautiful colors can now be found at the Sims2 Graveyard.

Two sets are available. Version one has the typical light blue eye. Version two has a greenish-blue eye in place of the light blue eye (my favorite and how I made it for my game )

Please only download one set! Remember, you can only have one set of default eyes in your game at a time. If you’ve already downloaded another default set, you must take them out before you use these eyes.

Full credit to Helaene for the gorgeous recolors!

Eye Type: Default
Eye Style: Human Realistic

I love these Helaene eyes. These eyes are my favorites. I always use them for my Sims. And now I can use them as a default replacement. Thank you

O________O YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW LONG I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS! THANK YOU SO SO SO SO SO SO MUCH!!! I would've done it myself a long time ago but I'm on a Mac and so (to my knowledge) there is no way I could have. THANK YOU xINFINITY!!

Although it is my 13th set of defaults(!) I am so glad and thankful, because these are also one of my favorites and were one of the first sets of custom eyes I had.
And thanks to Helaene for making them!

I have always loved Helaenes eyes thanks for making them default and recolor.
I prefer the blue eyes

Thanks so much for making Helaene's beautiful eyes default. I use her sparkling eyes on all my Sims, and having them as defaults is so nice!!!

Oh this has made me so happy! I used to ADORE these eyes and used them on all my sims before my game crashed... then Helaene's stuff went bye-bye, but now they're back, and as defaults, even! Thank you so much!
