Yes, though this is apparently the first occasion.

The sequence is:

* Sev barricades the door and windows of the sickroom, which becomes dark.

* Sev notices the room is too dark for him to see the sick man.

* Sev notices the room lightens.

* Sev notices the light moves with his eyes.

* Sev checks to see if the Claw is somehow casting the light, but it is 
still in its bag in his shirt and when he peeks at it, it is not lit at all.

* Sev chats with the sick man.

* Sev smooths out the lump as he feels the power flow up through him.

* Later, the recovered man confirms he was visited in the sickroom by a 
figure with glowing eyes.

Sev's later healing and restoration of Zama to life is similarly 
accompanied by eye-glowing and visceral sensations.
