Realistic eyeball with 2 painted texture sets and normal-based fake caustics shader. The shader very roughly simulates the effect of refracted light hitting the iris/sclera. It is more accurate than the old school "cone" mesh or normal map method but less accurate than real caustics.

Maps: 2 Diffuse 1024^2 2 Displacement 2048^2 (16-bit) 1 Cornea Displacement 1024^2 SSS Radius 64^2

Includes shape keys to control the shape and a basic model of eyelids for demo purposes.

    Can confirm what superhans wrote, texture images missing. There are materials with nodes, but I dug around in the file hierarchy to make sure and the texture images are missing.

    confirmed what the other guy said. i made this blend. accidentally uploaded the shader only, just dumped it and forgot about it. i found the fixed version w/ maps from the same time. uploading it. i will be updating this for 2.8+ (3.0 hopefully) with more accurate shaders
