"Hepimizin gözü ayd覺n!"- Congratulations to all of us! - this is used when something that one has hoped for for a long time has finally come true. It is an expression of happiness.

Thank you!!! By the way, göz means eyes, right?

Can you tell me the literal meaning also?

Thank you!!! By the way, göz means eyes, right?

Can you tell me the literal meaning also?

 

Let´s take a look at this example.

göz - eye

ayd覺n1. well-lighted. 

     2. clear, lucid (speech, writing). 

   3. (in expressions) joyous, happy. 

     4. intellectual, enlightened person

Ayd覺n can also mean bright, luminary, clear, literate, read (intellectual qualities), highbrow etc.

This expression has been formed with the optative mood in mind, but as you can see the "olsun" part is missing. I included it in the example to make this expression easier to understand. Its literal translation would be the following:

Gözün ayd覺n (olsun)! - May your eye(s)* be bright/light/joyous!

In translation: Congratulations! (I am happy for you!)

* In turkish singular sometimes can refer to a greater number of something. In this case, it is obvious that the person that uses the expression "Gözün ayd覺n!" refers to the person´s both eyes, not just one so it is not necessary to use the plural form. Some expressions, though, can take both singular and plural forms and they have absolutely identical meaning. For example: "Ellerinize sal覺k" = "Elinize sal覺k!"

If you have further questions feel free to ask.
