Did the eye control work with glasses?

i don't think so (although it might work with some types of glass, strengths etc, definitely not all)

I manually select my AF points. Never trust the camera! Joystick just about works but often struggles to get a particular point. Hopefully a new method will be developed in a new camera. Eye control sounds pretty interesting if done well.

Might buy a EOS 3...

Yes - it works with glasses.  You just need to calibrate it with your glasses on.  I've got mine set up as user 1 - with glasses and user 2 - with contact lenses. I'd have to say that it seems to work better when I'm wearing contact lenses, but it still works fine with glasses.

Even as innovations like 45-point Area AF and cross-type AF points have led to more compositional freedom and broadened the possibilities of photography, we are still devoted to developing in the near future AF technology that will focus where you want it just by thought alone without any physical operations. This “dream AF” will astound you all.

Could this be a return of 'eye control', or something totally new?
