All my life I’ve had rich detailed dreams. When I started vision improvement, dream after dream came to me about seeing, or about glasses or contact lenses, or the eye chart, or other vision practices. It was as if the Dream Guides were pouring out information and insights to me, now that I seemed ready to take it in.
My favorite vision-centered dream was of a small girl bringing her broken doll to Adult Me to fix. The doll’s head was lolling askew, with one jewel-bright purple eye dangling out of its socket. The child was upset, half-crying, not knowing how to fix her dolly, but she had utter confidence I could. When I woke up, I took this to mean that although I didn’t know how to fix my myopic vision as a child, I could help myself heal now.
Soon after I started vision improvement, I realized I could see fine in my dreams, with no eyestrain or worry about not seeing well enough. Distance did not matter. When I flew in my dreams, I could see what was happening on the ground far below me, unless I started to get too high and the atmosphere became hazy. Did this mean that at some level my vision was perfect, or was this just a fantasy?
Once I dreamed of seeing comedian Jim Carrey sitting on top of a billboard a few miles away at night, goofing around and making faces. I was so excited to be able to see so far and so well! A woman near me was upset that Jim was up so high, doing something unconventional which she thought was dangerous. She tried futilely to urge him to come down. I felt like she was missing the point, which was to have fun. This dream made me wonder about the connection between play or enjoyment and seeing clearly. And it reminded me that worrying too much does not help!
Some of my dreams about vision seemed like direct practical guidance. When I was still wearing contact lenses, slowly reducing my prescription, I dreamed of opening my contact lens case to find lenses stacked on top of each other, 2 or 3 in each of the 2 sections, stuck together and gummy in the dried-up solution. By wearing contacts, might I be over-correcting my vision, or “gumming up the works” of my eyesight? (I have a tendency to over-do, I must admit.) Soon after this dream I stopped wearing contacts for good and transitioned to only glasses, which I took off for longer and longer periods of time.
So whether you’re a dreamer or not, I encourage you to pay attention to signs and input about your vision. If that baby in your family keeps reaching to take off your glasses, maybe that’s a good idea! She knows they’re a barrier you may not need as much as you think. Guidance is always coming to you, whether you’re asleep or awake. You just have to let it in, then act on it.

As I see it, the dreams shows..vandalization as well.. the doll has been vandalized..
your dream shows weak neck . and weak eye.
and it shows weak connection of neck and eyes.
It’s true that people who are nearsighted often have a stiff neck. This can also be resistance to what feels like overwhelming input, bracing yourself. This was probably true of me in my childhood with those heavy thick glasses on my face, much less so now with all the physical work I’ve done and my Alexander Technique training. And if I may say so, I’ve been taught to respond to someone else’s dream with “If it was my dream it reminds me of ….” rather than “Your dream means such-and-such” or “Your dream means you should …”, which comes across as too pushy and taking the power away from the dreamer. The dreamer is always the true expert on his or her dream. Thanks for your input.
Not if you think in the following way.
You have to remember everybody said their point of view.
My conclusion looking at your dream and your life context.
That is my opinion. However, I have been right many times
And It seems dreams have universal meaning for many people in many cases, in my experience.
Yes, it were my dreams… even if it is your dream
I do not like that. I say my own opinion. You have to filter what people tell you.
It is very hard.
However, yes you have to check in yourself if you agree with it.
You have to verify.
So if you find this pushy what I wrote…It could mean your self defense mechanism are not strong enough.. Despite of all that work you invested?
OK, last reply here. I interpreted what you said as “Nancy, you have weak eyes and a weak neck!’ and almost deleted your comment. You think I need to be less sensitive, and I think you need to be more diplomatic in sharing your thoughts. And I have been right a few times too. 🙂 OK?
They are not always expert… They may become experts.
Most people are not.
They have to verify though
And everybody has blind spots… even an expert…or an advanced like you
Hi Nancy, I found your website because I’m happening to have similar dreams about my eyesight too! I have been wearing glasses for six years now, and after finishing the Secret not long ago, I am determined to heal my eyesight and restore it back to perfection. Ever since starting my self healing journey this Monday, June1st, I have had dreams of having amazing, crystal clear vision. The previous night, I had asked the universe to show my signs of its support to my goal of getting my vision back. I believe these dreams is the universe, God, and/or my guardian angels encouraging me. I am so motivated by this. Do you have any advice that could help me restore my vision? I have set a deadline, that this Friday, June 5th, 2020 I WILL have 20/20 vision. As long as I believe, I don’t know how it will heal, but I know it WILL happen. And so as long as I believe and trust, it will happen. I think it would be great if you could give me some advice to help me along my journey! I believe the universe has a reason to have guided me to your page. I am happy to recieve your guidance.
Hi Charlotte! I definitely believe dreams guide us forward, sometimes “seeing around the corner” for us when we’re not sure what’s coming. I want to caution you about all-or-nothing thinking, that if you don’t have crystal clear vison at all times by your aggressive deadline, that means you’ve failed. To me if you have one momentary clear flash of improved vision, you’ve succeeded, because if you continue good seeing habits, that moment will expand. My only advice now is to appreciate every single time you see more clearly, maybe saying “thank you!” out loud, rather than focus on the blur. If you’d like to set up a free consultation with me, to see if my coaching could help further, you can do so at https://nancylneff.com/discovery.htm. And keep dreaming! 🙂
Hi Nancy, thank you for replying so quickly!
I completely agree with you, about how dreams can help guide us. I understand what you mean about the risks of making a deadline at such an early time in my journey, and now thinking about it, you’re right! Despite being able to manifest a few things in the past, at times when things didn’t work out as I was hoping, it really would really drain me, but over time I’ve learned how to deal with it in a more positive manner. I do sometimes get a moment of clearer vision, it usually lasts like for about a second 😂, but I always say thank you. I’ve always been a very optimistic and bright person, so it isn’t hard for me to keep a positive mindset throughout the day. I always thank myself, my eyes, the universe, for all the good things that happen to, and for me. Even when the room around me appears blurry, I always say “Thank you, my eyes are so healthy. I love my eyes! I can already see that my eyesight is improving!” I always stay positive.
When I read your story, you mentioned how after switching from contacts to glasses, you stopped having to wear your glasses for prolonged periods of time. Did your eyesight just naturally improve on its own?
Hi again Charlotte. When I stopped wearing contacts and switched back to glasses, it was much easier to take them off, and I disliked them so much I did this more and more often, for longer periods of time. 🙂 Of course the improvement didn’t happen by magic (or maybe it did!) — I think my good healthy habits and Bates practices encouraged it.
I see, glasses can be a bit annoying at times. I mean, that’s the whole reason why I’m here! 😅
I hope you don’t mind me asking so many questions by the way, but you’ve read The Secret right? The Secret explains the significance of living like you’ve already manifested your desire, kind of like fake it till you make it. But at the same time, with the law of attraction, as The Secret mentions, if you want something, you must take action to achieve it. Since I’m working on manifesting perfect vision, I have been doing eye exercises daily, because I have heard that it is beneficial and can help with bad eye sight. However, I realized that by doing eye exercises, aren’t I contradicting my manifestation? I’m living like I have manifested 20/20 vision, yet what I am practicing only reinforces the opposite, that I have bad vision…because the only reason for me to do them, is because my vision is bad.
Isn’t this an issue? Wouldn’t this slow down my manifestation? My actions are contradicting my beliefs. Yet it is important to take action so I can get closer to my manifestation, right? I have stopped my bad habit of holding everything I read, specifically, my phone, so close to my face, and I give my eyes periodic breaks when using electronics. What do you think?
Charlotte, I cannot be your personal vision consultant 🙂 unless you are a client of mine. I admire your inquisitive nature and positive attitude, both of which will pull you forward to whatever you want, including clearer vision. About actions and intention and manifestation, these all need to be in alignment to achieve your goals. I work out regularly because I want to stay strong and fit, and I do regular eye practices because I want to keep and improve my already good vision. Action supports intention — you can’t just sit on the couch and wait for your dreams to be sulfilled without doing anything to support them. Take care.
I understand, thank you for the advice and inspiration!
Thanks Nancy for your post which I found uplifting. I specially like the one about Jim C, oR rather about having fun. I do believe that our thinking takes too much room in our lives, we need to let go and the best way to do that is through enjoying ourselves.
Your dreams are very vivid, just as vivid as your eyesight hopefully.
Hi Annie, and thanks for commenting. I’ve been taught that while we dream our logical (that’s not possible!) mind which is so active when we’re awake is suppressed, so our creativity and wonder and sense of fun come to the fore. I think this is what seeing with the eyes of a child is all about, and I try to remember it every day. See well and be well!
