Optical illusion is something that deceives the eye by appearing to be other than it is. There are many types of optical illusions, and allow me to bring to you guys a collection of ‘anything’ that could trick your eyes. Do visit regularly and be prepared to be ‘fooled’. (you’d like it, I promise.)
Whenever we hear the words ‘optical illusions’, we tend to think of it as, perhaps this?
