Can You Actually See As Well As You Think You Can?

We get to spend too much time at home these days. This gives us enough time to find a new hobby and be creative. Some like to cook, and others are busy solving puzzles.

When it comes to puzzles, we suggest that you try something different. Optical illusions, quizzes, brain teasers and math problems are some of the great options you have right now. Just don’t spend the entire day in front of your TV.

In this article, we give you 9 visual tricks to test your vision. You can also learn more about your critical reasoning ability.

Get proper rest and pick the right time for these visual tricks. Don’t even think of doing them in the middle of a migraine episode.

1. Is line 2 really longer than other lines? Well, the lines are slightly angled and they create the illusion of a really long railroad. Take a look at the inclination of the rails. They are all the same.

2. Are the lines straight? They are. You may not see that at first, but the lines are perfectly straight. The pink and gray boxes give you an illusion of curved winding lines. Yes, it’s just an illusion. Just take a look at the edges of the picture and follow the lines. They are really straight, right?

3. One of these nine boxes is brighter than the others. It’s the first one.

4. It’s pretty similar to No. 3. However, the colors are lighter and you may have a hard time finding it. It’s No. 7.

5. If you are color-blind you will be able to spot the red circles in the dull green shade. The red, pink, and brown circles make an outline of a 2. Use this trick to diagnose red-green color blindness or color vision deficiency.

6. Can you see an 8 in this picture?

7. Is there a number in this picture? If you have astigmatism or other similar condition, you may not see the number 571. Astigmatism is a vision condition that gives you blurred vision. It happens when the cornea has an irregular shape. It’s also caused because of the curvature of the lens in your eyes.

8. Can you see the dog?

9. Look at the red crosshair. Which purple shade is the best match?

If you can’t solve these, you should definitely consult an optometrist or ophthalmologist. “The Economic Burden of Vision Loss and Eye Disorders in the United States” is a study focused on vision issues. According to the findings, the US government spends about $139 billion on solving vision issues each year.

One in six American adults aged 45+ deals with vision issues. The risk of vision issues increases with age.

“When you’re at work, exercise your neck by nodding your head up and down, thereby increasing blood circulation to your neck and eyes. Also, don’t stare at the sun as it can be detrimental to your vision,” ophthalmologist Arun Sethi explained. “Too much UV exposure makes you more prone to cataract and macular degeneration. Also, you should choose sunglasses that block 99% to 100% of both UVA and UVB rays.”

Get enough sleep every night and drink plenty of water. You also need to add more foods rich in vitamin A, C, lutein and beta carotene to your diet.

If you have the right answer for each question, congrats, your vision is perfect.
