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.

White's Optical Illusion

Below is an excellent example of White's illusion. This is an interesting effect, below there is only one shade of gray, one shade of blue and one shade of red (to be clear all of the gray you see is the exact same color, this applies also to all blue and all red you see).

Although the color lines on top appear to be darker than the color lines immediately below, they are actually identical. That is, they are identical in intensity, but perceptually different in lightness.

As you can see, the color lines on top are mostly surrounded by black, while the color lines below are mostly surrounded by white. The color lines' surroundings are changing their perceived color.
