* The MasterSwordsman Mathangi Mantra in ''Webcomic/KillSixBillionDemons'' gets these while [[http://killsixbilliondemons.com/comic/wielder-of-names-5-100/ parrying a bullet]]. Rather than fear, it pairs with DissonantSerenity to extremely unnerving effect.

* Mr. Herriman of FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends gets this way at the mere ''mention'' of dogs. Somewhat understandable considering he's, well, an anthropomorphic lop-eared rabbit.

If this only happens to one eye and not the other, it's a case of {{Mad Eye}}s.

Frequently overlaps with OhCrap.

Contrast OpenTheIris, the trope's physical opposite.



Not to be confused with SphereEyes.
