Don’t trust your eyes: how do optical illusions work? Examples included

Some optical illusions really blow our minds. However, it’s not easy to understand how these illusions work at once. Let’s get through this!


Optical (or visual) illusions are created by specific colors, light, and patterns. Our brains try to process this information, but it turns out to be deceptive or misleading. Optical illusions occur because our brain is trying to interpret what we see and make sense of the world around us.


While creating an optical illusion, artists usually take into account these three things:

  • Peripheral Vision
  • Blind Spot
  • Mental Filtering

Which of these optical illusions do you like most?

I did not get the dot to disappear either and only when I did not focus would the illusions expand or move. I liked to see them move!
