pick up a copy of grey's anatomy and/or anatomy for the artist. take a close look at the structure of the eye including the surrounding muscles. also pay attention to how the iris is framed by the lids, this is key to conveying emotions.

I don't suggest just learning eyes at first, you should learn how to draw the entire head/face in it's basics.
If you are going to though, try to not think of eyes as a flat shape on the face, think of the actual eyeball and its curved shape. Here's a diagram from Loomis' Drawing the Heads and Hands that I remember when thinking about this.
I also suggest drawing eyes from life (use a mirror!) and then try to draw some from imagination using what you just learned.
