The Iris size on the eyeball, varies much less from person to person. you get the Iris size right and you will know the size of the ball. I can find the ruff proportions of that if you like.
That will help you structure your lid and socket well around it. With the eyelid just make sure you leave a fold crease for the top lid. It is a good idea to put a tear duct in while your at it. Its often overlooked.
