Glowing Eyes

I have a fear of glowing eyes in the dark. There is probably no name for that yet..It all started three years ago during a meteor shower. I went outside on the porch alone (since everyone had to be in bed) with a flashlight. It was cold. When I saw the first one I began to count them. I counted up to 28 and then I looked around with my flashlight and saw to my right two glowing yellow eyes standing a little ways in the tall grass. It probably wasn't a cat as it was far off the ground. It was just sooo scary. After that I ran inside, locked the door and hid under the covers.
I'm still afraid.

I am afraid of this as well. This includes how eyes look in a nightvision camera as well. Freaks me out really bad.

I have this same phobia and now whenever i see a fox/dog/cat in the darkness when I shine a flashlight at them I get sooo freaked out!

I'm surprised there isn't a name for it-- It's horrifying how are there so few people with this phobia?..

I finally found sombody with the same fear

Wow I thought I was the only one.

So did I...but my fear started in a different way. I was having a dream where I was in a dark room, looking though pictures that glowed in the dark. A few were pictures of glowing eyes in the darkness and it freaked me out. But your story sounds scarier...
