Darken iris color

The safest way to darken your eye color is through cosmetic contact lenses.  This will allow you to change your color to one that you prefer.


There are also medications that are used for glaucoma which can have the side effect of darkening your iris but these are not used for that purpose alone.


I would recommend seeing an eye care professional who fits contact lenses and ask about cosmetic lenses if you are highly motivated to change your eye color.
