I am working on a project for which I need to detect the position of eyes using webcam. All the project work is being done in python . Initially,I implemented the eye detection using the tutorial provided in the documentation of OpenCV. But the performance of that is very poor. It doesn't perform well if the person is wearing glasses on the eye. Sometimes it even detect the mouth as ey if you are speaking while looking at the webcam. Is there a way so that I can implement eye detection to the most accurate level in OpenCV (programming language preferred-Python) ?

Simply using off the shelf OpenCV functionality, then the answer is NO. However if you are able to develop and finetune the algorithm, then you might succeed. As a suggestion I can point you to the OpenCV 3 Blueprints book which has a chapter on person identification methods which discusses eye and iris localisation.
