The IUCN Red List status of Orange-eyed Flycatcher is assessed as Least Concern, due to the extensive geographic range of the species (BirdLife International 2012).

The Orange-eyed Flycatcher is not a common bird, however. It occurs in low densities (Schulenberg and Parker 1997), and its relative abundance in Ecuador is assessed as "rare and local - though doubtless overlooked" in Ecuador (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001a).

Effects of human activity on populations

Human activity has little short-term direct effect on the Orange-eyed Flycatcher, other than the local effects of habitat destruction.
