Nice test. There is an issue with the eye's resolution though. I assume you scaled up the original eye, you can see it has a lower resolution (once scaled) than the rest of the footage. Maybe try shooting the eye separate in a closer angle to then scale it down and don't lose resolution.

Good thoughts! I like the idea of the eye matching his natural movements, so it might just be better to shoot with a higher res camera.

Or you could shoot with 2 cameras at once. One on a wider angle like that one you used and another with a zoom lens more close on the eye. So both have the same relative movement (you would still have to track it a little because of the angle difference) and resolution.
