UPDATE: smaller, realistic sized version is available here .

I don't like the fact that there ist only one eye colour for all sims. So I made contact lenses for more eye variations in game.

They can be found under costume makeup and are available for all ages and genders .

There are 3 recolourable areas:


(whites and pupils always stay the same)



Here are some examples for colour combinations:



And here are some ingame shots:




I personally prefer to make the colours rather similar (for a natural look) but you can choose them freely, for example:


I didn't make reflections on the eye texture because it causes problems with females and children. But the game creates reflections by its own (like in the pictures).

The face skin used in the pictures is by 234jiao: Asian Skins
and I'm using hair texture replacements by Ja at GoS:
Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Beautiful! And finally 3 colour eyes! I can have my blue, purple, pink eyes now. :D

Edit: Thank you!

Very useful! I like eyes with a dark outer rim, that's possible now without having it for everybody, great! Thank you!

This looks like a great idea, very clever! For instance, my own eyes are weird - green but with light brown in the middle, and now my self-sim can have the same! Thanks for this.

This is such a fantastic and needed item in the game!

Please also make a smaller size, like in Escand's Tiffany Glaze eyes or HystericalParoxysm's Unbiggenated eyes. EA made the default size huge and after having realistic sized eyes in game it's hard to go back

Thank you so much!

Not buying TS4 until Terrain Sculpting is back and cheatless Split Levels are added!
Here's an idea: Stairs Pitch Slider.

Thank you! This really helps in making some sims. I've always wanted a sim, with green eyes, but brown around the pupils.

@EsmeraldaF: My own eyes have the same colour! Funny!
@Anshin Lanugo: Yes, I can do it. It's not so much work.

Fantastic! While I LOVE some of the beautiful replacements that are out there, it IS fantastic to have options because it's true, not everyone has the same eye colors and textures. Lovely to have some nice, realistically textured contacts, thank you for the thought. ;o)

Awesome. Thanks! I agree with Spacerox. There are many replacements out there, but it's so hard to have to choose one! So, thanks for making this as contacts!
