An optical illusion is something that deceives the eye by appearing to be other than what it is.  It can be an image that our eyes (or mind) visually perceive, but is realistically different. Most of the time, the image appears to be something that our eyes are accustomed to seeing – the reason why the moment we see an image, we recognize it, even at the first glance. But are we seeing the right thing?
