Hmm... They're really good, but I can give you some advice regarding them because I used to practice eyes before too. And this is just how it worked out for me personally.

When you have like two "lines" on the top, try to make it so the second line aligns with the bottom of your eye. Like... The line that angles down at about a 45 degree angle, try to make it so that it aligns with the bottom of the eye. That makes it look "cleaner". Try drawing the pupil before everything else inside the eye. It is easier and it works best when the character is facing a direction away from you.

Try starting with bigger eyes first, then start getting smaller. The bigger eyes give you practice with the details without being too difficult, where the smaller eyes give you precision, honing your skills further.

Then try practicing while drawing hair right above them. That will give you practice for the hair as well as how it works best for you to draw it near the eye.

After that, experiment with locations in the face. Try finding where it looks best and use that. I hope it helped!

Well, that's just how it ended up working for me! Yours are already good, so it's your choice if you want to change it!
