I am going to be making a series of close-up shot of eyes. Just one eye generally the eyebrow and maybe just a portion of the bridge of the nose. Is a ring flash the correct method to light this type of shot?

The ring flash will do as stated with the catch lights. You didn't say what lens you plan to use and what the distance will be from the subject, but assuming you plan to get close, the ring flash or Nikon R1 (or R1C1) will let you get close without shadows or having the light in the wrong place.
