Try using AFC single point instead of 9 point dynamic while still keeping the focus point on the eye. In the dynamic mode the camera will initially use the point you selected but MAY change it to another point if  it finds something with better contrast under ANY of the other (9, 21 or 51) dynamic points. While this is not how Nikon states it in the manual, I found it to be very true

Thank you tiko. Switching from 9 points to single point AF-C seems to improve the focus consistency significantly.  Didn't notice any further improvement moving to AF-S though.
