* In ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', when The Janitor makes the grave mistake of saying a new attractive latina nurse looks like a "young Carla", Carla gets glowy eyes and conjures up a powerful wind that blows all throughout the hospital (in an obvious ShoutOut to {{Storm}}) and emits a high-pitched scream that breaks Dr. Kelso's glasses and shatters Turk into a million pieces. ("So ''that's'' why they call him Glassman!") This all happens in an ImagineSpot by the way.

The entire RL section was misuse/shoehorning.
[[folder:Real Life]] * Cats can appear to have this ability, but it's actually more like Shining Eyes of Doom. Cat eyes have reflective membranes (the tapeta) that bounce light which gets past the retina back onto it to increase their night vision. However, the "glow" is all light reflected from the environment and is not a real glow. ** Not surprisingly, the pictures on [[http://www.catsthatlooklikehitler.com/cgi-bin/seigmiaow.pl Cats That Look Like Hitler]] often have "glowing eyes of evil" -- in some cases it's probably deliberate. ** Raccoons are also rather well known for this, as they are frequently spotted at night. [[http://naturalunseenhazards.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/raccoons.jpg Tell me this photo isn't a bit unnerving.]] * Parrot eyes don't glow, but they do dilate very noticeably -- "flashing". Somewhat akin to a cat's purring or a pet rodent chattering their teeth, this eye flashing might indicate excitement, or warn another that they are very, very PO'd. * Many creatures ([[SmallReferencePools most familiarly dogs and cats]]) have eyes with an organic mirror (the tapetum) behind the retina, to increase the sensitivity by bouncing light back onto it. In diurnal creatures, this tends to be red (not quite the same thing as the red-eye effect in humans), in nocturnal, crepuscular, and cathemeral creatures such as cats or owls, this tends to be orange, yellow or green, and in dogs, this tends to be blue-green or blue. * Humans don't have a tapetum lucidim, the red eye effect is simply caused by the flash being too close to the camera lens[[note]]The light from the flash travels into the person's eye, bounces off the retina, and back into the lens. Placing the flash farther away from the lens widens the angle, making it more difficult for the light to hit the retina ''and'' bounce back to the lens. [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle And now you know.]][[/note]]. Animals that do have a tapetum very rarely exhibit the red eye effect unless their eyes are blue; instead you may see eyeshine. In fact, humans that DO exhibit something resembling eyeshine (other than the typical red eye effect) in photos should be checked by an ophthalmologist as it is a common symptom of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leukocoria Leukocoria]] and several other serious (but fairly rare) illnesses. * The Vampire Squid uses bioluminescence to ''pretend'' to have these. * There are neon contacts that glow under UV light. Technically, they absorb light at an invisible wavelength and convert it into a visible wavelength before releasing it. This is known as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluorescence fluorescence]]. * Modernized [[UsefulNotes/RussiansWithRustingRockets T-90 tanks]] carry a pair of infrared targeting jammers (the Shtora system), mounted on either side of the main cannon like eyes. When idling or out of combat, the jammers are off and appear to be regular old searchlights. In combat, they are switched on and [[http://i.imgur.com/gVUuYCE.jpg emit a sinister red glow]].
