Madara shouldn't have eyes at all I think. His natural doujutsu evolved into the Rinnegan, though he ended up giving them to Obito, then Obito implanting them into Nagato, and had then rested them from his corpse by Obito. Obito then implants one of Madara's eyes into his left eye socket and who knows what he did to the second one; probably Zetsu has it as well as the one that he intends to give back to Madara.
It's weird though that Madara can perform doujutsu without well, a doujutsu.
When Madara died, he had no eyes. When Kabuto revived Madara, he was brought back with his doujutsu, as Itachi was when he was revived.
To be honest, it's all a bit redundant. Madara planned on being revived by Obito via the Rinnegan, though he was brought back by Edo Tensei and made immortal. Though he ditches immortality in mid-battle no less to become mortal like he intended. I guess being mortal has its pros but not in mid battle, he could have done whatever witch craft he needed to live out his life after crushing the alliance. Now he fights with a temporary handicap (kinda sorta) until he gets his powers back...
