Description Presented here is a vast gallery of many different forms of Optical Illusions. Whether these optical illusions are conveyed through fractals, photographs, architecture, art, or old fashioned pen and ink, they are bound to remind you that "seeing is not believing."

Caution!!!! Some of the optical illusions on this blog may cause dizziness or possibly epileptic seizures. The latter happens when the brain can't handle the conflicting information from your two eyes. If you start feeling unwell when using this website, immediately cover one eye with your hand and then leave the page. Do not close your eyes because that can make the attack worse.

A True Optical Illusion

The below is an amazing illusion that is made possible by a blending of art and science. This illusion comes to you from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. The way they were able to give this young lady the illusion of having both eyes is incredible.

Life can change in the blink of an eye. It did for Lorie Navejar. But thanks to science, no one can tell. Navejar and her family planned what was supposed to be a fun outing last April. They spent the day in Sadler, Texas and ended up taking a ride on an all-terrain vehicle (ATV). But the off-road adventure took a turn for the worse.

Navejar was riding on the back of an ATV when the vehicle hit a muddy incline and flipped over, landing on top of Navejar and the driver. The handlebar went straight into Navejar's eye . "It went directly into my right eye and went back out," Navejar said. "I covered my eye and stood up praying, ‘God help me. God please help me.’ I have never experienced pain like that and I would never wish it on anyone."

Emergency teams airlifted Lorie to a Dallas hospital. There, doctors sutured the globe of her eye. "At the time, I didn’t think I was going to lose my vision. The pain was actually too bad to think about anything," Navejar said.

...."I felt disfigured, not myself. I didn’t feel presentable to people. I didn’t want to go to a lot of places, I just wanted to stay home," Navejar said, after injuring her eye. "Dr. Sponsel suggested I see Nancy. He said the prosthesis might help the way I felt about myself."

.....Creating Navejar’s prosthesis was a balance between fine art and modern science. Navejar posed as the artists’ model while Hansen and Guerra carefully studied her natural eye, noting the color of every fleck.
