Had a dream of your eyeglasses breaking? While it might seem trivial to dream up, that confusing and often shocking imagery can have an unexpected meaning.
Many people automatically associate a dream of glasses breaking with something negative. However, that’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Let’s find out what it can symbolize as you scroll down below.

Interpreting your dream of glasses breaking

Broken glass can be interpreted as good or bad.

Glass has a complex meaning in dreams. It can symbolize many things, from clarity and good to vision and intuition. However, glass is also fragile. It’s easily breakable in certain circumstances. Thus, glass in dreams can be associated with conflict and transformation in your life.
So, what does it mean if you dream of glasses breaking?
A dream of glass breaking can be a good or bad omen, depending on the context. It might refer to a point, a relationship, or a perception in your life that’s waiting to be destroyed and reformed.
When you see broken glass in your dreams, you might also notice how sharp and dangerous the shards can be. This vision can come off as a subtle warning, telling you to be careful and not get cut, emotionally and physically.
Broken glasses can point to a new era. You might be reinventing yourself, and it’s about time to shatter self-imposed limits or rules to your personality. It can also signify broken expectations.
You’ll probably feel a myriad of emotions with this type of dream. There can be a sense of loss, a broken heart, or disappointment that something in your life isn’t everything you thought it would be.
On the flip side, breaking glass can also have a hopeful meaning. In Jewish weddings, grooms break glass to celebrate a new beginning for the newlyweds.
Remember, dream interpretations can vary from one person to another. If you feel something doesn’t align, your dream of glasses breaking might signify something else in real life.

Sleeping with your glasses on can have costly consequences.

Sometimes, dreaming up broken glasses doesn’t need any symbolic meaning behind it. Maybe, it’s because your actual spectacles broke in real time!
We all know how that feels. I, myself, had slept on my side too many times before. Little did I know, my frames had stayed on for the entire night and became badly dented come morning.
Having a sturdy pair of eyeglasses is vital in our daily lives. You might find it challenging to do the simplest of tasks without them.
To make it worse, getting them fixed or replaced is such a hassle. If only one lens got damaged, you’ll probably pay around $50 for a replacement. Double that, and the cost can easily hike up to a hundred dollars.
That estimated cost doesn’t even cover anything else. If you have a particular prescription or need various coatings for your lenses, that’s another added fee.
The cost and hassle of having broken glasses can be so frustrating. So, let’s avoid that immediately by selecting the most durable eyeglasses you can get.

Getting durable eyeglasses that can better survive unintended naps

Aside from timeless frames, don’t forget to look into durable lens materials. This factor matters, too, since the material of your lens dictates how easily breakable they are. For starters, you can select the following.

Polycarbonate lenses

If you need an everyday prescription lens that won’t crack at any point, go for polycarbonate lenses. They’re solid yet super lightweight. Compared to plastic lenses, these better resist impact and corrosion.

Trivex lenses

For those who run or play sports all the time, check out Trivex lenses. Once used for military purposes, this lens is robust, lightweight, and offers high optical clarity.
Trivex lenses are often used for sports glasses, children’s eyewear, and safety glasses for work.

Whether you need a fresh perspective or a new pair of glasses, don’t hesitate to welcome that change in your life. And if you want more info on durable frames and impact-resistant glasses, check out Mouqy’s blog.
