Unless you are doing something very special eyelashes are a few mm, if your depth of field is 5mm your shot will have a problem

For as much as it looks cool to shoot 1.2 in reality handheld even at f/2.8 depending on magnification you cannot focus an entire head

I have taken some test shots and in some cases it does miss the eye ball but thats because i moved a little and CAF makes predictions after all

Portrait/street photographers might beg to differ.  There's a reason that EyeAF is a very popular and widely used AF option, not EyelashAF

Seriously though, if the subject of your photograph is a person's face, having a sharply focused eye makes a big difference.
