Step 2
Copy "background" layer using CTRL + J on keyboard. Name new layer "normal_eye".

Step 3
Go to Create new adjustment layer and create Channel mixer and press OK. Go again on Create adjustment layer and click Hue/Saturation and click OK. Now, we have to make these two layers to be clipping mask of "eye" layer. Click on Channel mixer and then go to LAYER - CREATE CLIPPING MASK. Repeat this with Hue/Saturation layer.

Step 4
Now we have to work on Channel mixer and Hue/Saturation. But first we have to mask eye on the photo. Click on Channel mixer mask (be sure that it is filled with white), pick brush, select black color and paint over eye (or you can use Quick mask mode if you find this approach easier).
When you are done with mask press ALT key and drag mask to the Hue/Saturation mask above it. Release it and you'll be asked if you want to copy it over existing mask. Click Yes.
This is how it looks

Some FAQ's

May I publish your tutorial(s) on my website?

NO - DEFINITELY MAY NOT! I don't mind, of course, any form of back link to Digital Photo News tutorials section, but taking any one of the tutorials whole and supplanting it on your website is theft. If you really like the tutorials and want to advertise them, why not just hyperlink directly to their URL?

Is it possible to submit some of my own tutorials?

Yes! I love to add new and original tutorials to ever-growing database! If you would like to submit a tutorial, fill in the contact form with as much detail as you can manage and we'll get back to you with details. There's no need to stick to a specific format when submitting, as we will do all the boring work for you if needed... and fully credit you as the author on your tutorial pages if your submission is accepted.

Can I request a tutorial?

Of course you can! I make no guarantees i'll be able to get around to your specific tutorial in any given timeframe, but I listen to audience, and if there is demand out there for a guide to a specific technique/effect, I'll be only too glad to offer my assistance. Just ask via the contact form.
