Out of curiosity, is "...se zelenými očimi..." also correct? My classmates preferred to use forms like "s náma" and "s váma" but in written form I saw "s námi" and "s vámi" more often.

No, that is the point of this lesson. Unfortunately we still do not have the Tips and Notes.

The rule is: "Paired organs of the human body (ruce, nohy, oči, uši, ramena, kolena) use even the so-called dual declension in the plural (you can find more about the declension of body parts here). " from https://mluvtecesky.net/en/grammar/cases

So you have očima as the correct form, but you have s námi for other plurals.
