If you have the idea of changing something in your home, to get out of the sameness and leave everything 100% original and with your face. At some point you may have come across a picture or image of an optical illusion. It messes with our unconscious, because we often remain for some time without knowing what is happening. We call optical illusion the illusions that deceive our visual system. The illusion causes us to see something that is not there, or causes us to see images in the wrong way. The image of an object, transmitted by vision to the brain, is decoded and interpreted. However, under certain conditions, this interpretation can be erroneous, because we have some difficulty comparing angles, lengths, and distances. This misinterpretation of what we see is called an optical illusion.

Have you ever viewed an image and realized that it showed much more than it seemed at first glance? The name for this is optical illusion – images that end up deceiving our vision, giving the sensation of illusion by seeing things, many times, as they are not in fact. Curious about this subject? Read more below. How does it happen? According to ophthalmologist Omar Assae, this phenomenon is common among people, that is, optical illusion does not indicate any disease and also does not depend on whether the vision is good or not. In fact, optical illusion is not only related to the eyes. The information is absorbed when the light hits the retina and travels through the optic nerve, and then the brain interprets what it has seen. All this happens very quickly.

In other words, optical illusions are images that deceive human vision, causing the human being to see things that are not present or causing him to see things incorrectly. Usually they are figures that can have various interpretations, can appear naturally or even be created. The illusions are fun because they combine two types of elements: the clear elements, which are those that are perceived as soon as you see them, and the surprise elements, which are those that appear as you start to observe the drawing more attentively. “The interpretation of what we see in the outside world is a very complex task. More than 30 different areas have been discovered in the brain that are used for processing vision. Some seem to correspond to movement, others to color, others to depth (distance) and even to the direction of an outline. And our visual system and our brain make things simpler than what they actually are. And it is this simplification, which allows us a faster (albeit imperfect) apprehension of “external reality,” that gives rise to optical illusions.”

Is the optical illusion new? As early as 1915, people were interested in understanding more about optical illusion. The cartoonist W. E. Hill became well known for his works that cause a certain reverie when viewed. One of his well-known images is a figure that conveys two different impressions: a girl looking into the distance or the face of an old lady looking at the ground. We are surrounded by optical illusions, and television is one example. It is a collection of static images that appear to have movement when they are presented quickly. It is the human brain that assembles all these images and watches them slower than how it is shown. The knowledge and study about optical illusions began in 1915 with the cartoonist W. E. Hill who published the following drawing and became known worldwide.
