A SisterTrope of TheDarknessGazesBack. Not to be confused with SeeTheWhitesOfTheirEyes, which is a figurative expression for getting close to your enemy. Nor EyeLightsOut, which is a death trope.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Nightlight'' (2015), the dog's eyes reflect as twin circles of light whenever the flashlight glints off them in the dark. [[spoiler: That's all we see of it - points of light being violently yanked off-camera in the blackness - when it dies.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Seeking shelter on a coral reef, Chris and Martin on ''WesternAnimation/WildKratts'' are joined in a pitch-black rock crevice by a ''huge'' pair of eyes. This is all the more alarming in that they're miniaturized at the time, hence ''very'' vulnerable to predators. [[spoiler: Fortunately, it's just a harmless blowfish.]]

* Possibly inspired by this is that it used to be believed that light came from someone's eyes and that was how they saw but this an old (500 BCE old) theory.

* One of the early ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' animations showed this when a bunch of Onu-Matoran were trapped by a cave-in. Possibly a JustifiedTrope, since most incarnations show the characters' eyes having some sort of glow, even in daylight.
