The pattern is made up of a first portion having a first shade, a second portion having a second shade different from the first shade, and a third portion having a shade different from the second portion and either the same or different from the first portion. A first uneven border differentiates the first and second portions, and a second uneven border differentiates the second and third portions, however, said portions may overlap. The lens is capable of changing the appearance of the iris of the person wearing the lens.
