WM heads i got ships with 32mm eyes, but i still can use the more common 26mm, alot easier to insert than the 32's and look good too. You can get the eye lids from Manniqwin Fan also for both sizes

Cool thanks for the reply, the 26mm are easy to get as well not many doll sites don't really stock 32mm unless go to a human dummy eye site where people who lost eye(s) and needing a dummy eye(s).

Yes 26mm eyes works on most heads very well, but it depends on how much the eyes are open or closed. On more closed eyes it works best, on more open eyes with bigger sizes it could look a little bit lost.
BigBurrito is absolutely right. The 26 eyes are much easier to insert without damaging the eyelashes :
You can also find 28mm and 30mm eyes

26mm: 4 pairs $5,22

MannequinFan is the the best place (person) to buy eyes from imo.

You can then find more high definition printed glass pupils and irises on Etsy, and the like, that you can glue a small washer to the back of to make them compatible with the magnetic system he's employed in the design so you can swap lenses to create a new look in a second, with no faffing about or worry of ruining the lashes and makeup as you change them.
The initial expense is higher buying a set of MFs eyes but it adds up in the long run imo if you want a choice of eye colours.
The quality of MFs eyes and the high definition printed irises really is way beyond anything else I've seen too btw, making them a lot more realistic than any of the half round eyes I've seen.

KingMansion has an eye listing on Amazon. I bought the green and grey. They matched the photos exactly and they are beautiful. I wish KingMansion carried a shade or two of blue with the same detail as their green. That would be amazing.

I am pretty disappointed with the factory WM eyes I've gotten. The green are scary yellow. The blue are okay, but actually contain no detail in comparison to the above.
Edit: actually the dark brown ("Maroon"ish) WM eyes are pretty decent. I got them on one doll to mimic the look of my favorite webcam model, but I'm not into brown generally.

On my pictures are only half rounds, pretty cheap and useful.
I have also ordered the MannequinFan eyes additionally.

But full rounds work good as well:

Recently got 30mm's, and they fit nicely: in the head it looks no different (you don't see they are smaller than standard 32mm). One benefit is it seems the eyes can be rotated more easily...well at least I found that they shift per accident easier than the 32mm ones ;p and correcting is rather easy as well.

One thing to keep in mind is that the eye sockets on these TPE dolls are usually flattened at the back and not full spherical, so a full round 32mm eye may be a problem. 26mm eyes would be way too small really. You can see on this JY Zoya head that the eye socket is rather shallow and flattened on the back...

The eyes I make are a little smaller (30.5mm) and as avante mentioned that does help them to move a little easier as there is less pressure on the TPE, but are large enough not to gap.
As Hangman and Starquake pointed out the lenses can be made yourself or purchased from a number of sellers on Etsy as well.
You just need to super glue a 4mm flat washer to the back.

Make sure you are getting the standard low dome profile and not the high dome...
