Are your eyes playing tricks on you? Where optical illusions are concerned, they might be doing just that. Sometimes what you see really isn’t what it seems.
Optical illusions come in all forms: from false horizons, to misperceived heights, to a sidewalk chalk masterpiece. When the visual areas of the brain receive and process the image you are looking at, the eyes sometimes see something different than the brain; this causes a disconnect between the immediate visual impression and the object’s actual properties. And Voila! An optical illusion is born.
Aside from testing your brain, optical illusions are a great way to learn about what your eyes are capable of — not to mention, they’re a fun break from mundane Monday activities. Sneak a peek at these awe-inspiring illusions. It’ll be a welcomed exercise for your eyes and mind, and before you know it, you’ll start questioning whether or not you really do believe everything you see! 🙂

Have a fabulous week!
