They eyes are often referred to as the window to a person's soul. If your eyes are not the colour you would like them to be and you do not like to wear contact lenses, it is possible to change the colour of your eyes without contacts. Some people with certain medical conditions such as albinism may feel uncomfortable with their eye colour and need to change it permanently, while other people may want to enhance their natural eye colour for a change of pace.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Change your shirt. Some eye colours, such as green or hazel, can be dramatically changed by clothing colour choices. Go through your wardrobe and see how wearing different colours can change your eye colour, or go to a store and try on different shades of clothing, especially those you may not already have in your wardrobe.

  2. 2

    Change your make-up. Enhance brown eyes with green or brown shades, green or hazel eyes with green, brown, or purple colours, or blue eyes with blue or purple. See a cosmetologist to receive colour tips about your particular eye colour. Both eye make-up and face make-up can alter the colour of your eyes.

  3. 3

    Consult an Ophthalmologist for an iris implant. An intraocular implant can alter the appearance of your eyes. In the past, candidates for this procedure usually suffered from congenital defects of the iris, ocular albinism, iris heterochromia or other ocular conditions. Doctors also now utilise the procedure to alter eye colour on patients, strictly for cosmetic reasons.

Tips and warnings

  • Consider surgery very seriously. Though the iris implants can be removed, there are risks involved in the procedure and a recovery period.
