10 Optical Illusions That Will Have Your Eyes Crossed

The cones and spheres inside our eyes interact with light while the brain processes the information that comes with it. Our eyes, however, sometimes trick us.

It is natural that we get confused when we see an odd thing for the first time. But when we look back, we then have a different interpretation of the same thing.

These tricks of the eye are called optical illusions. Most of the times, it is puzzling but it can also be challenging and sometimes hilarious. Here are some examples of how crazy things look when our eyes don’t understand the information presented for the first time.
