Fear of Eye Communication

How can I overcome the fear of eye communication
I am person of calm going, but when I am communicating with some persons, I am unable to see them directly to their eyes, which is important in good communication.
But though I know this I'm getting anxious. How can I overcome it?

Face your fear and your fear will move away..
Or communicate with yourself in mirror and learn to make eye contact with yourself, probably you don't wish to see yourself in action and want to avoid people reaction..

Hope this helps.
