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.

Diagonal Waves Optical Illusion

Prior to viewing this image please read the caution above.

I saw this optical illusion many times around the net but it never impressed me until I saw a larger image. In the below image you might experience two different effects.

The first effect is apparent even when you look at smaller versions of this illusion. Stare at it long enough and you will see a 3-d effect. It will appear that your screen has rolls in it. Please remember that this is not the case and if you check you will only get finger prints on your screen.

The second effect is only seen when this image is relatively large. You should see motion in this image as your eyes wander over the different quadrants. If you don't see this motion click on the image to enlarge.
