1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Whether or not you are comfortable making eye contact with people is a physchological phenomenon.
Several conditions can make it difficult to maintain eye contact - anxiety, depression, social phobias, etc. Discuss this with your primary care doc since those conditions have treatments.
