How did you remove the hair on the eye? The iris in my picture doesn't look anywhere as smooth and glossy as yours. Is there some other trick other than healing or clone stamp?

Not really no.

That's about all I used, just with a very small brush, around 2 to 4px dia. Then I just go careful...on a new layer of course.

I try to not change anything that doesn't need it, sticking rigidly to just the problem pixels. If you take a look at this image it shows the difference between how much editing each of us made in that area...you can see that there is a big difference in the amount we did.

For me the more of the original I can leave untouched the better.

Regards.

Yes, I see what you mean. While editing, I did feel that I kept editing more and more to make up for the last edit that I did. Your picture illustrates that I touched too much when I should have started out with a more precise edit. The "touch-up" below (unfortunately done with paint to a 19th century fresco) is a lesson that I should remember about not touching too much.
