I keep my eyes centered on their torso and let my peripheral vision fill me in on the rest of their body.
Like the guy before me said, probably the best way to do it is just to slow things down to a point where you're able to react. Once you're comfortable there, speed it up.
Get some tennis balls. Hang them randomly in an area that's 5-8ft diameter at varying heights. Get in the middle and start punching. Don't punch hard, just enough to get them swinging - your goal here is to keep all of the balls moving at the same time for as long as you can without any of them hitting you anywhere but your hands. Bob, weave, whatever. This should improve your accuracy and timing as well, and you could try this with bubbles or something instead of tennis balls if you want.
