You can use the pen tool's Feather tools to customize the edge blur. You can apply curves and adjust the alpha to change the progression of the feathered edge. you can composite multiple copies and change the blend modes. There are lots of things you can do. Curves + Blend Modes + the feather tool (g g). Check it out.

Here's a project file to play with.

First, be sure to pre-comp your eye, and move all the attribute, then you can apply any effect special from distortion example Warp, Bezier Warp, check this https://we.tl/t-t5NtmcUxvJ

Thankss!.. i have learned about bezier warp.. i might probably use it soon.. but it also warps the lines, i think i should add the venetian blinds later so it wont get affected???? probably but it might probably distort the edge feathers too and making them unequal animating masks is fine by me thanks for the response

Thankss!!! its not really the answer that i was looking for exactly but it made me figure it out, i just removed the "Orange Solid" and i was happy about how the edge feather looks i like how you used curves i have not thought about that and 

i have figured it out its simply

Edge feather tool & Curves (Alpha) 
and both can help to have more control towards the edge feather and luminance
