We construct a microscopic optical potential including breakup effects for the elastic scattering of weakly binding projectiles within the Glauber model, in which a nucleon-nucleus potential is derived using the $g$-matrix folding model. The derived microscopic optical potential is referred to as the eikonal potential. For $d$ scattering, calculation with the eikonal potential, i.e., the EP model, reasonably reproduces the result of the exact calculation with the continuum-discretized coupled-channels method at intermediate energies. From the properties of the EP model, the inaccuracy of the eikonal approximation used in the Glauber model is partially excluded. Also analyzed with the eikonal potential is the scattering of $6$He from ${12}$C, and its applicability to scattering with many-body projectiles is shown.
