No. Lens flares do not occur with only the naked eye.

"A camera lens has a number of elements that work together to focus an image onto film. The insides of lenses are coated with an anti-reflective material to help reduce the amount of secondary reflections known as ghost. In the case where bright lights are facing the lens, the lens coating is not fully effective and secondary reflections occur producing what are known as lens flares. Each part of the camera that light travels through before reaching the film may cause a secondary reflection which can show up as spots or banding. For this reason Zoom lenses with many focusing elements may have a complex looking flare, while prime lenses with only a few elements will result in simplistic looking flares."
