I wanted more realistic defaults, but I didn't find eyes that had all the things I was looking for. So, for two months I've been working on these. I've been pulling all the tricks and techniques I know to make these as realistic and pristine-textured as possible, so enjoy!

These eyes are realistically scaled and proportioned. With many custom eyes, the eye is centered so that it looks slightly cross-eyed, so I moved them more towards the middle.

Another common problem with custom eyes has been that the vein-detailing looks horrid when a sim looks sideways, you know, like there's some internal bleeding going on.. So I made the textures of the whites so that there is a realistic vein-detailing, yet the corners of the eyes don't look blood-shot when a sim is looking sideways.

Also with contacts you can change the color of the whites, which also changes the strength of the vein-effect.

Contacts are for baby to elder, and they are flagged genetic (so they inherit like defaults). I've also included a default replacement option.

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.
