The glasses being place on his face shows that Piggy understand the situation and is trying to explain the knowledge that he has about it even though no one will listen, which in turn eventually leads to the change that occurs with the glasses. “His specs, use them as burning glasses!”(40). Very shortly after Piggy gives the boys a reality check with his glasses on, he is assaulted, and has his glasses used for alternative reasons. This shows a change in the interpretation of the glasses because when the boys take the glasses, they disregard that not only are the glasses a symbol of knowledge, Piggy needs them to see. The glasses are then used as a tool for destruction, they use it to create a fire.

Timothy Liu: The significance of Piggy's glasses in Lord of the Flies. The Piggy's glasses represent a escape from times where he doesn't want to be notice.

In the beginning of the novel, Piggy's glasses help the boys take a huge step toward their own civilization and survival. This is one of many reasons why Piggy's glasses symbolize civilization and knowledge. In Lord of the Flies Golding writes,"' His specs – use them as burning glasses"' (40). He illustrates how the boys use the glasses to create fire to demonstrate their value and why they are beneficial. Golding also writes, "Piggy's glasses flew off and tinkled on the rocks''(71).
The mistake made by Sir William Golding in Lord of the Flies is regarding Piggy’s glasses. Furthermore, Piggy is portrayed to be very nearsighted meaning he is unable to see things relatively close to his eyes or being myopic. However, the boys use his glasses to start fires when in a scientific perspective, it is impossible to start a fire with the glasses of a person who is myopic. In addition, it is as a result of the concave lens which diverges light rays to form an image on the retina of an eye. The only possible way to start a fire with glasses, is with the spectacles of a farsighted or hyperopic person as the lens are convex as they converge light rays to a specific focal point in front of the lens, depending on the focal length.
