You appear to be shooting Nikon so, you might consider the 85mm Micro-Nikkor as well. With the 1.5 crop factor for DX that puts you at about 130mm for a portrait perspective similar to the 135mm often used for this. At the same time, it will give you the native 1:1 magnification for your eye reflection shots.

thanks for that, I've got a d600, so don't really wanna get a DX lens , since I can get a better Tamron for the same price, and a bigger aperture. 
going to look into lense filters a bit more

thanks
