If I am remembering correctly, I placed a duplicate layer overtop and tried various blend modes ( Overlay, Soft light and Hard light) to see which added the best color and contrast. In this case, it was Hard light. I then masked out all but the eye itself, merged down & added a touch of reverse sharpen (Unsharp Mask with settings of A = 20, R = 40 & T = 0).
