Laser Eyes Meme Maker


Welcome! This is a simple laser eyes meme making tool. Simply drag and drop an image onto this page, or paste an image URL anywhere on the page, and then you can add the lens flares / glowing eyes stuff, and then download your image - no watermarks!

The glowing eyes meme emerged from a film/tv trope in which a character eyes begin to glow when their super powers activate, or when the director wants to show that something supernatural is about to happen. One of the earliest known occurrences of glowing eyes in the meme-o-sphere, or lens flare eyes was in a 2013 post by Tumblr user maohshounen captioned "ah yes my throne":

The meme slowly became popular, and eventually reached Reddit where more mainstream memes were altered to incorperate some sort of laser eye effect:

The sleeping shaq meme was one of the memes that helped bring glowing eyes into the main-stream. Some of the Aku "Extra Thicc" meme videos, like this one, used the glowing/laser eyes effect too.

The eyes in most of the laser eye memes are red, but there have been a bunch that used different colors too. They're often created in photoshop using built-in effects, or by using a red glow png with a transparent background (which is how this meme maker works). I've included a bunch of different lens flare images, and so you can layer them and resize them to create more complex effects.
