Help please: CC Eyes Only Appear When I Randomise Eyes

I've created some custom eyes using S4S but now I've got issues with all of my custom eyes.

When I start creating a sim, I only have a small selection of eye colours to choose from (see below):

The list does not include the custom eye set that I created. But, if I click the randomise button a couple of times, the original list of eye colours is replaced with the eye colours that I made (see below):

Does anyone know why this is happening? How can I fix this issue? It's driving me nuts. I just want to have a list of different options and not have to warp my sims eyes in getting them to show up.

    Are these default eyes? You can only have one set of default eyes in your game at a time or it causes problems. Also, I don't know if it makes a difference but, the first picture appears to be in Vampire mode.

    As @Bananas_45 said, make sure they're not default replacement eyes. If they are, the only way I know of to fix that is to create a new CAS standalone and reupload the textures as new swatches. Also ensure they don't have identical swatch colors as the defaults, as that can cause problems and/or just be plain confusing.

    I have this problem sometimes. I have many CC eyes, all are non-default. But sometimes, only a few will appear until I chose a different eyeshape. This is very annoying when I need to change the eyes colour but not the shape. I had an hybrid get eyes I usually only use for aliens as there is a shine painted in them that would give a normal sim a crazy look, so I went to change her eyes but only got those eyes as an option. And I have at least 3 kinds of cc Alien eyes, so it cant be bc of that.
