What is Ommetaphobia?

Ommetaphobia is also known as Ommatophobia and is the fear of eyes. Ommetaphobia develops when someone has a bad situation or traumatic event occur in their life involving eyes (i.e., seeing an eye pop out of the socket, getting hit in the eye, going blind in an eye, etc.). Ommetaphobia is considered a social phobia because it involves social situations (i.e., looking into someone’s eyes, touching your eyes, things getting into your eyes, etc.). However, I would imagine it could also be considered a specific phobia. For example, someone seeing eyes floating in a jar could send them into a panic. You can find more information about social and specific phobias on the home page.

What are the symptoms of Ommetaphobia?

As with any phobia, the symptoms vary by person depending on their level of fear. The symptoms of Ommetaphobia typically include extreme anxiety, dread and anything associated with panic such as shortness of breath, rapid breathing, irregular heartbeat, sweating, excessive sweating, nausea, dry mouth, nausea, inability to articulate words or sentences, dry mouth and shaking.

Can I take medicine for Ommetaphobia?

Medicine can be prescribed for Ommetaphobia. Please note that these medications can have side effects and/or withdrawal systems that can be severe. It is also important to note that medicines do not cure Ommetaphobia, at best they only temporarily suppress the systems. However, there are treatments for Ommetaphobia, which include counseling, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, and Neuro-Linguistic programming. Please click on the link at the top of the page called “Treatment Information” to find out more information on these types of treatments.
