Tack sharp focus on subjects eyes....

This is an odd one, as I feel after years of shooting, I should be better. I am struggling to get tack sharp focus on the subjects eyes when I open the aperture nice and wide. Am I expecting the impossible with a 1.8 or 2 aperture?
Some lenses produce better results for then others. For instance with my 50mm (nikon D1.8) I can nail the focus most of the time. With my 85mm (G1.8) I struggle mightly....to the point where I just can seem to hone it in and I get soft eyes....
Anyone have tricks or thoughts on what you are doing to get those eyes into sharp focus?
