Then your ex was a handsome man, not necessarily an officer or gentleman. The cracks are from temperature changes and time.

Good luck on your work.

How did you guys fix the eyes?
I think you did fine on the eyes except there is a little blurring on the lower lid. I just zoom in really close and using 2px (sometimes even a 1px) 0% hardness, 100% Opacity, Blend Mode = Darken or Lighten (whatever appropriate) Clone Tool just click away. I sample from very close to the place I am trying to fix - this way the shading will stay the same. Also don't lower the opacity of the Clone Tool unless you deliberately want to give it a blurred look or you are trying to smooth something.
