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.

South Pole After Image Optical Illusion

The nature of this optical illusion is to paint a grey scale image using only your eyes.

Below is Lieutenant John Bortniak out for a stroll at the South Pole.

Focus on his nose in the center for 30-45 seconds then move your mouse over and the image it will then swap to the grey scale image, but you will see the original image in all it's glory.

Photographer: Commander John Bortniak, NOAA Corps

Stare at the image below. It will show the negative image for 10 seconds and the gray scale image for 1 second. The longer you look at it the more pronounced the effect.
