I want to add some color to the iris so , Open the eye picture again and crop a square enclosing the iris , paste it in your palette and make it match with the original iris , (this is easier than it looks) , then erase with the soft brush the edges and play with the (image/adjust/brightness contrast) and (image/adjust/color balance ) so you get your desired tones
