How Glasses / Eyeglasses 👓 looks in different fonts.

In standard Windows, both Segoe UI Emoji and Segoe UI Symbol fonts have the eyeglasses symbol.

Apple emoji look different, here’s the glasses emoji with the Apple Color Emoji font:

Glasses 👓 codes

These are the important code numbers or values you’ll need to enter the Glasses or 👓

Hex:   1F453

Web: 👓

(web codes aren’t used in Microsoft Office, we’ve included them for the sake of completeness.)

Word and Outlook

The Glasses 👓  sign does NOT have an inbuilt shortcut in Word for Windows.

Use the standard Word Alt + X symbol shortcut 1F453  then Alt + X

Once in a document you can copy it to AutoCorrect and make your own shortcut.

Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook

Insert | Symbols | Symbol and look for the  Glasses / Eyeglasses symbol.

Eyeglasses Icons

Microsoft 365 icons (Insert | Icons) have six different eyeglasses icons in either White (outline) or Black.

Some of the icons are intended as ‘sunglasses’ but might serve your need.

Tip: search for ‘glasses’ to see all the icons.  Looking for ‘eyeglasses’ only shows two icons.

Window 11/10 Emoji Panel

The Windows 11/10 Emoji Panel has the Glasses 👓  character. Use Win + . (period/fullstop) to open the panel and search for ‘glasses’ to find the symbol plus sunglasses, face with sunglasses and a Groucho face.

See Emoji Panel is part of Windows 11/10 that totally sucks

MacOS and Office for Mac inserting characters

On a Mac, to enter the Glasses 👓 symbol:

  • Command + Control + Spacebar shortcut to open the Character Viewer.  
  • Search for “ Glasses “ and the Viewer should find the symbol you need.

Despite the name Character Viewer, the Apple system tool will also insert characters into any program, including Office for Mac.
