Which famous figure do you see? The answer says a lot
AsapSCIENCE knows how good your vision is.
When a color-changing menace known as the Dress threatened to tear our country apart in late February, AsapSCIENCE swooped in to save the day by explaining the complex science behind the optical illusions. Now those scientific wizards are back with a little bit of visual trickery designed to test your eyesight.
Glance at the image below a normal distance from your screen and one of two famous figures will emerge.
If your peepers focus in on Albert Einstein then congrats, you’ve got great vision. Yet, if you’ve got an eye full of Marilyn Monroe then it might be time to see the optometrist.

That’s where the low spatial frequency of one photo is combined with the high spatial frequency of another, creating a foggy mess that changes depending on how far you are away. Still rubbing your eyes trying to make sense of it all? Let the friendly crew at AsapSCIENCE offer a more thorough explanation.
