Eisoptrophobia

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


Eisoptrophobia is a psychological condition in which one fears mirrors[1][2][3] or seeing one's reflection in mirrors.[4][5][6][better source needed] "Eisoptrophobia" is derived from the Greek "eis" (into) and "optikos" (vision, image, sight). Even though the sufferers know their fear is irrational,[citation needed] they experience excessive anxiety when they look into the mirror.
