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.

Going Blind Optical Illusion

Notice that all the lines in the photo are perfectly straight.

Now stare at the center for 45-60 seconds and you will see the lines become wavy before your eyes. After staring at this photo for an extended time try and read this paragraph again. You will notice that an after-image severely distorts your vision.
