Our intuition often communicates messages to us using symbolism and metaphor.
The images we receive in a dream, a meditation, and a vision can have deep meaning for this reason.
Symbols received in an intuitive state connects us to our inner wisdom. Likewise, these symbols can be used as shorthand by Spirit, such as your Guides and Angels, to relay layered messages to you.
Seeing Eyes Symbolism
The first interpretation is always that when you see eyes in meditation, this is considered a sign your third eye is opening.
Your third eye is a common term used to describe your inner knowing and wisdom that you can access through symbolism, vision, and dream. It is also called inner sight, or your ability to psychically see, clairvoyance.
So when you see eyes in a visionary state, it can mean your psychic, inner sight is being tapped into or now opening for you to use.

The ability to see, vision.
Windows to the soul; one's own individuality.
May correspond to one's outlook in life.
An all-seeing eye = spiritual vision, intuition, or God.
Metaphorically, may be used in the following ways:
to shut one's eyes = to ignore what is happening;
an eye for an eye = equal punishment or reaction;
giving an eye to detail = paying close attention;
to give someone the evil eye = to wish them harm;
to feast one's eyes upon = to look with admiration and longing;
making eyes at = to flirt;
catching one's eye = to draw attention to;
they were able to see eye to eye = they were brought to agree;
in the public eye = brought to the world's attention.

Additional interpretations of seeing eyes
It could also symbolize you are seeing the truth, including the truth of what you see in other's souls or even a doorway opening to your own.
When you see a human eye blinking at you, to me, this typically represents human consciousness.
If you see eyes in a dream:
There could also be a dual meaning at play.
Since with dreaming, you are unconscious when you see the symbol, the meaning changes.
Symbolism can change depending on if you are conscious vs. unconscious when you view it. Similar to the shift in meaning between upright and reversed positions of the Tarot cards. So in this way, dreams can sometimes include protection or caution messages.
Hence, seeing eyes in a dream can also mean that you need to pay better attention or to watch something going on in your life.
Overall, if you have seen eyes at all in a vision:
It could mean the beginning of your clairvoyant abilities opening/symbolize that your third eye is open now.
It could symbolize seeing the truth.
It could symbolize a connection to human consciousness.
It could be a message about watchfulness/watching.
Finally, my favorite interpretation of seeing eyes is when it is paired with another vision, such as a pyramid and when you see this, it means enlightenment.
With all things, take some time to think about what the symbol means to you, as we all have a unique set of symbols we use to communicate with the Divine, and seeing an eye may be one of those unique symbols for you.
