Catchlights... ha... many ppl want this effects on the photos.

It's quite difficult if you want your subject to look at your direction and you have your flash mounted on the hotshoe. To prevent it?... pure physics... make sure that the flash don't get reflected off the eye into your camera.

That is known as a catchlight. Perhaps you could bounce the fill light off of the ceiling (if any). You can also place it above than the eye level, don't shine directly at the subject. Don't know if this is the best way, but it works for me when you dun want to have dual catchlights in the eyes. :)
