Dreams about eyes falling out: What do they mean?

What do dreams about eyes falling out mean?

Seeing eyes falling out in your dreams can signify a variety of things.

These dream images are often triggered by recent experiences or anxieties you may be facing in your waking life.

Depending on the context of your dream, eyes falling out of sockets can indicate fear, guilt, jealousy, distrust of others, or insecurity.

Let’s take a closer look:

1) Falling eyes may represent feelings of guilt

If you dreamt that your eyes were falling out, perhaps you were feeling guilty about something in your waking life.

Guilt is often a sign that you’re holding yourself back from doing something you want to do or that you’ve done something you feel bad about.

If you’re feeling guilty about something, try to identify what it is you feel bad about and take steps to address it.

Perhaps something has happened in your life that you feel responsible for and that you wish you could take back.

Falling eyes in a guilt dream can also symbolize something you’ve done or said that you wish you could take back.

Perhaps you’ve hurt a loved one and are feeling regret over your actions. You may also find yourself wishing you could shut your own eyes so you don’t have to see the pain and suffering you’ve caused.

If you dreamt that your eyes were falling out while you were with a friend or loved one, consider the context of your dream. What are you feeling guilty about in your relationship?

Take steps to address those feelings and communicate them to the person you’re feeling guilt towards.

2) Fear

Dreaming that your eyes are falling out may be your psyche’s way of expressing your fears.

If you’re afraid of something in your waking life, try to identify what it is. It’s important to face your fears and not let them stop you from living your life to the fullest.

Perhaps you’re nervous about a test you have coming up at school, an interview for a new job, or even a loved one having surgery.

The dream can also symbolize your fear of failure or of making a mistake in front of others and looking foolish.

The first step to getting over your fear is to identify it.

The second step is to talk to someone about how you may approach overcoming it.

And finally, you need to work on getting over it – if you’re afraid of doing something, you need to do it to prove to yourself that you can. Things are usually a lot less scary than we imagine.

3) Jealousy/Envy

Dreams that feature eyes falling out may represent jealousy triggered by a close relationship in your life.

Perhaps you’re experiencing some envy towards a loved one and are feeling jealous that they seem to have a lot of opportunities and success in their lives. Maybe a friend of yours just got promoted at work and is doing really well. Or maybe someone you dislike just had a baby.

I know I had this dream when a friend of mine was getting married. I envied her so much! I wished it was me who was getting married and although I was happy for her, I also thought that I deserved to get married more than she did because I had been with my boyfriend for much longer.

Eyes falling out in this type of dream can also represent regret over not being able to achieve something you’ve always wanted or even jealousy over not being able to be with someone you’ve always wanted to be with.

4) Mistrust in relationships

Dreaming that your eyes are falling out can symbolize feelings of mistrust in a relationship.

Perhaps you’re putting all of your trust in someone and are feeling a bit nervous about the situation.

Or maybe you’ve been hurt in the past and have trouble letting anyone close to you because you may get hurt again.

Think about your dream. Was there someone in it with you?

Or is there someone, like a partner, in your waking life that you’re having trouble trusting?

This dream is a sign that you need to work on your relationship.

Either, this person is not to be trusted and you have to ask yourself what you’re doing with them, or, if you have trust issues you need to work through them. I suggest speaking to someone like a friend or even a therapist.

Not being able to trust means not being able to relax and enjoy your relationships with other people.

5) Eyes falling out represent insecurity

Finally, dreaming about eyes falling out may be a reflection of how you feel about yourself.

Perhaps you’re feeling unconfident in your own abilities and don’t think you are good enough at something you do.

This is a strong sign that you may need to practice some self-love in order to boost your self-esteem. Life is all about balance and there needs to be a healthy level of confidence, as well as humility.

Be sure to give yourself credit for your strengths, as well as working on your weaknesses. Taking steps to improve your self-esteem will pay off in the long run.

Tips to help you understand dreams about eyes

  • Focus on the feeling behind the dream: What were you feeling when you had the dream? What do you associate with the eyes? What was going on in your life when you had the dream?
  • Keep a record of your dreams: This is the best way to understand and interpret your dreams. Keep a journal by your bed or use an app to record your dreams.
  • Be open-minded: When trying to interpret your dreams, be sure to keep an open mind. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to dreams and what they mean. What may be true for one person may not be true for another.

2 common mistakes when dreaming about eyes

  • Mistake #1 – Interpreting eye dreams as literal eye problems: Dreams aren’t always literal. If you suffer from eye issues or have ever been to an eye doctor, you may initially mistake your dreams for literal eye problems. This can lead you down a path of confusion.
  • Mistake #2 – Assuming your dreams are only about yourself: Dreams are often about more than just yourself: they can also be about your relationships, your health, and your feelings about the world around you.

The more open-minded you are, the more likely you are to find the right interpretation for your dreams.

Dream interpretation: What do eyes symbolize?

The eyes are the windows to the soul, or so people say.

The eye is also one of the strongest symbols in mankind’s history. In various cultures and traditions, the eye can represent divine insight, trust, watchfulness, innocence, knowledge, and many more concepts.

In dream interpretations and symbolic meanings of dreams, eyes—and their symbolism—can indicate how you feel about yourself or others. Eyes may also indicate your senses or hidden intentions.

Let’s explore what eyes symbolize in dreams:

1) Blind eyes

Seeing blind eyes in your dream means that you are being kept in the dark about something important.

Blind eyes in a dream also signify that someone is keeping a secret or a fact hidden. It could also mean that your opponent or someone who is against you is keeping their strategies and plans under wraps.

2) Closed eyes

If you are dreaming of closed eyes, then it means that you are feeling low and that you are in a state of despair.

You are going through a very hard time in your life. You are also feeling a sense of guilt or shame and you are not able to face the truth.

It could also mean that you are feeling very guilty and ashamed of yourself.

3) Black eyes

If you are dreaming of black eyes, it means that your opponents are trying to tarnish your reputation. They are spreading false allegations against you and are trying to bring you down.

Black eyes in a dream also mean that you are feeling very sad and disappointed. You are feeling unworthy or feeling as if you do not deserve something.

4) Blue eyes

Dreaming of blue eyes denotes trustworthiness and sincerity. A person with blue eyes is probably an honest individual.

Blue eyes in a dream also signify that you have an innocent heart and that you are a pure person. They could also mean that you are very generous and kind-hearted.


Dreams can be a great way to unpack your current anxieties and find ways to manage those feelings.

After you’ve analyzed your dream and identified what it could mean, try to think of ways you can use this information in your daily life.

Did falling eyes represent regret or guilt in your dream?
