To give a small 3D effect to your eye, you can also add a shadow and a reflection. The shadow in the bottom can cover a larger part and touched the outline of the eye. The reflection on top should be smaller and a little further from the outline of your eye.

Add some basic colors to your illustration. In order to make the reflection more visible, add a light color (blue or grey) to the eyeball. Make the shadow on the bottom a little darker (but not too much!).
