In the following article, you will find some of the best optical illusions and visual paradoxes that are going to blow your mind!

10 Impressive Optical Illusions That Will Make You Doubt Your Eyes

You may want to move away from your monitor to enjoy the following optical illusions. The farther you are from the image, the stronger the effect is.

1. Hidden face

If you closely look at the below image, you will only see black dots. But move away a bit and you will see a hidden face!

2. Diamonds

Do the figures have perfectly straight lines?

Yes, they do!

3. Figures

What about this one?

4. White circles

Do you see circles in the following image?

In reality, there are no circles, and this effect is produced by equal distances between the black lines!

5. Moving ornament

Despite the picture below is static, it seems to be moving!

6. Moving circles

Similar to the previous illusion. The picture is static but we see it moving. If you cover with your hand all the circles except one, you will see that it does not move at all.

7. Another moving figure

Another static image that appears to be moving. Once again, the closer you are to the image, the less pronounced the effect is, so make sure to look at it from a distance.

8. Magic cube

Could such a cube exist in reality and not only in the picture?

9. Weird construction

Similar to the previous visual paradox. Probably, your mind will not manage to find the answer to how this can be possible.

10. Distorted reality

In my opinion, this is the most impressive illusion for today. Look at the picture below for 10-20 seconds. However, make sure not to look at it for more than 30 seconds, or you are going to get yourself a headache! Also, you may want to avoid looking at it if you are feeling exhausted or sleepy.

Then look at your palm, someone’s face, or the objects around you. Don’t worry, it will last only for a few seconds 🙂

Which of these optical illusions did you enjoy most of all?
