A creature with energy vision can fire beams out of her eyes at the cost of bio-energy.

Firing your energy vision require you to expend some bio-energy depending on the shape (see below).

When using your energy vision you must decide between kinetic beam or heat beams. Kinetic Beam deal 1d6 force damages per per character levels or CR (whichever is appropriate) bypassing object's hardness. Heat beams deal 1d6 fire damages per character levels or CR (whichever is appropriate) =and may at the user's option the energy vision may set unattended object(s) on fire, assuming any object hit survive the damage dealt to it.

Additionally as long as the user has at least one or more point of bio-energy in her bio-energy pool she may have her eyes glow as per the light spell.

When energy vision is used, the user must select one shape and one output. She must meet the minimum HD prerequisite of any shape, output or essence she attempt to use.
