Optical illusions are visual tricks that deceive our brains and eyes into seeing things that are not there.
They can test our sharpness of vision by challenging us to spot fine details in the illusions.
The best examples of optical illusions that test acuity are the ones where we have to find hidden objects or patterns.
These illusions can also test our peripheral vision, i.e., the ability to see things at the edges of our field of view, which can make it difficult to spot objects that are not directly in front of us.
Optical illusion can also make it difficult to distinguish between colors.
Optical illusions are also used in psychoanalysis to study how we perceive things.
One such illustration can be seen in the picture shared on social media where a cat is hidden in between the cacti.

One of the social media users revealed that the puzzle makers photoshopped the animal to create the illusion.

They can also teach us interesting things about how our brains work.
Many scientists use optical illusions to study how the brain processes visual information.
