Dreams about glasses are quite prominent, and they are dreams that deserve some attention. Glasses do hold quite significant meaning in a dream, and they can give you some good insight into your life or into what you can expect to happen.
What happens though when your glasses are broken in a dream? Glasses in dreams, much like in real life, help us to see and improve our sense of sight. When broken, this is made difficult or even impossible, and it prevents us from being able to see clearly or to think clearly of steps to take.
Broken glasses are also associated with bad luck and suffering, which is important to remember in the context of your dream.
Not all the dreams of broken eyeglasses mean gloom and doom, so it does help you to understand what the different meanings of broken glasses dreams might have so that you can see how your dream relates to your life!
What Do Glasses Mean In A Dream?
Glasses in a dream often hold a negative context. They are often a representation of a dark mood and a persistent lack of motivation. This can also lead to different emotions, such as loneliness and depression.
The glasses show that you need help to see things clearly, and you are currently having difficulty doing so. You are not able to discern situations clearly, and the glasses are a symbol of this.
Not being able to see things clearly means that there is uncertainty in your life. You are going through a period where you are unable to make a decision or to see things for what they are.
You might also be going through a time in your life where other people’s actions and decisions are affecting you, but you are not able to see the extent of this effect yet.
You might be waiting to see what the outcome of their actions and decisions might be and feel as though your own future is not in your hands.
Just like we need glasses to see in our waking life, glasses in a dream represent the same. However, the glasses in your dream would represent that you are not able to see clearly spiritually or with your mind, and you are uncertain about your future or things happening around you.
This uncertainty can also come with negative emotions, sadness, and other troubling feelings.
Dreaming Of Broken Glasses
In your waking life, broken glasses can be a disaster! Not only do they leave you unable to see clearly, but having to replace them can be a nightmare as well.
However, broken glasses in a dream are not necessarily always bad, and they can have some positive meaning, along with some negative interpretations as well!
There are a few different interpretations that you could take from dreams of broken glasses, so read through the different ones below to see what your dream of broken glasses could mean to you.
You Are Making Your Own Path
The glasses in your dream could show that you are not able to see things clearly, and that you are battling to work out things for what they are, and that you cannot see where your own path might be leading.
By the glasses breaking in your dream, it shows that you are no longer waiting for things to play out in front of you, leaving you in the dark, but instead, you are taking charge and not waiting for things to play out, and you are making your own path.
By breaking the glasses in your dream, you are taking charge of your own destiny and making sure that you are in control. You no longer have difficulty seeing how things may play out and affect you because you are no longer leaving things to chance.
This is a wonderfully positive dream and exactly what you need to motivate you to keep moving forward in the right direction and take charge of your own future!
You Are Finally Seeing Things For What They Are
Glasses help us see things for what they are in real life, and are a huge benefit for day-to-day life. Metaphorically in a dream, these glasses could represent that you are not able to see things clearly and that you are battling to understand the things around you.
In a dream, if your glasses break, it might show that you are taking the initiative to see things for what they are, and you are no longer letting anything cloud your judgment. You no longer need help from glasses to let you judge things around you, and you are finally doing this on your own.
For example, this could be coming to the realization that someone you considered a friend or someone close to you is not actually on your side, and you are finally seeing them for the person that they are.
This can be heartbreaking, but it is an essential step to removing negativity and toxic energy from your life.
It could also be coming to the realization that a situation in your life is not healthy. This could be certain friendships or even your work environment. You have seen this for the damage it is causing you, and are deciding to move on from it.
You Are Experiencing Misfortune
Broken glasses in real life can be really frustrating, and you might feel as though you are experiencing some really bad luck if your glasses suddenly shatter!
Much like this, in your dream, broken glasses could be a symbol of other misfortune going on in your life. Whether it is the ending of a relationship or losing something meaningful, this misfortune or bad luck could manifest as broken glasses in your dream!
Carrying on the theme of bad luck, broken glasses might also represent a decision that you have made which you are expecting to turn out badly. This could be that you have placed a bet on something and you are now regretting that decision, as you expect to lose.
You might have made a decision to place a bet or similar on bad information, where you were not thinking clearly, which also runs with the theme of glasses in a dream hindering your ability to see things for what they really are.
Bad luck and misfortune are never great to experience, and the seriousness of the misfortune you experience can vary, but often this is represented by broken glasses in your dream.
You Are Making A Mistake
In your dream, the glasses might be preventing you from seeing things how you should, and you might be following this false narrative to make a bad decision.
Broken glasses in a dream might be the red flag your subconscious is trying to send you to get you to see things clearly and to avoid making any more mistakes going forward.
To prevent yourself from making a mistake and to instead make better decisions, you might need to break the glasses that are leading your down the wrong path.
Broken glasses in this case are a good thing, as they can prevent you from making some bad decisions!
Your Perception Of Someone Has Changed
“Rose-tinted glasses” is a term used often for when you see someone for better than what they really are. There are many reasons why your view of a person might be better than what it should be.
They might have manipulated you to think they were more than what they are, or you could be hoping that they are someone or something else, and not see them for who they are.
Broken glasses in your dream could symbolize that this rose-tinted view of a certain person is finally breaking, and you are beginning to see them for who they are. This can be really hard to get through, but it is important to not be further deceived by someone close to you.
Your perception of this person has changed, and this can be a good thing. It may have been something they said that made you question their intention, or you might just have woken up one day and realized that you have been taken for a ride.
These rose-tinted glasses are now broken, and you can see with your own eyes what this person is really like, and what their intentions might be.
You Need To Take A New Perspective
Your current perspective on things, or even your own life, might not be working, and might not be all that positive. You might feel as though you are stuck in place and not able to move forward, and this can be so incredibly frustrating.
Having your glasses break in your dream might mean that you need to change your perspective, and start making changes in your life by believing in this new perspective.
The glasses you were wearing in your dream might have kept you with a negative view, which could have been holding you back. However, by breaking these glasses, you are breaking free from this negative view, and are instead giving yourself the chance to have a new view of your life.
If you believe this to be what your dream means, do not just leave it as is and hope that things will change on their own. You need to put in the effort and change your perspective for yourself.
This dream is a sign that this needs to happen, and you need to take the next few steps in order to move forward and ensure that your outlook has a more positive influence on your life.
What Does It Mean To Dream Of Sunglasses?
Dreaming of sunglasses can signify that you are trying to hide your true feelings and emotions from someone. Just like dark sunglasses hide your eyes from real life, and protect them from the sun, sunglasses in a dream could be hiding your emotions and protecting you from being vulnerable.
People who dream of wearing sunglasses are often going through a situation where they do not want to be made vulnerable. This could be in a relationship with someone new, or opening up to someone who you think might want to take advantage of your emotions.
The eyes are the window to the soul, and sunglasses are the perfect cover for emotions and feelings. So this shows that you are feeling vulnerable with your true feelings and your emotions, and you feel as though letting these be shown can lead you to hurt or lead you to be at risk of something else.
Having sunglasses broken in the dream could show that you are ready to let these emotions out, and while you might still be worried about the repercussions, you trust that the person you are opening up to will not hurt you or take advantage.
What Does Broken Glass Represent?
Spiritually, broken glass is often connected to breaking away from evil spirits. However, in dreams, broken glass can often represent new beginnings and new life.
Broken glass can be re-created and formed into something new, so breaking glass in a dream could show that you are ridding yourself of past burdens and evil, and you are now embarking on a new journey that is more positive.
Dreaming of broken glass can show that you have a new self that is emerging, with a better mindset and view on life, and you are now seeing things clearly on your own and making better decisions for your life.
These are some of the meanings broken glass might have in a dream:
- Broken glass could represent change and transformation in your life, where you are moving in a good direction and things will turn out better.
- It could be that broken glass represents a clairvoyant side that you never knew existed. You may have tapped into something spiritual in yourself that allows you to see things with a more open mind, or be more receptive to things in your life.
- The fragility of glass, and the ease with which it breaks, could also speak to your mental and emotional state of mind. You might feel very fragile and not in a good place, and this is represented by the fact that the glass is breaking.
- Glass is closely related to evil spirits and the other side, and broken glass shows that you are moving away from evil spirits.
Broken Glasses Dream

By the glasses breaking, it could show that you are finally seeing things clearly and not through a blurred lens, and your view of the world is opening up.
Now that we’ve gone over what broken glasses in a dream could mean, let’s take a look at a few related questions on the subject!
