"médica" is a female doctor and "médico" is a male doctor?

Yes! A médica / o médico. Eu medico = I doctor / ela medica = she doctors

Nos olhos = in the eyes.Not tears in her eyes as duo suggests.Nos seus olhos aparece melhor para mim.

My understanding is that possessives are usually avoided for body parts so, although your translation and alternative phrase both fit, Duolingo's versions are probably the most natural in writing. See: http://www.learningportuguese.co.uk/language/possessive-pronouns.html.
