Perfect Vision...
is an optical illusion

Although the image above appears to be moving, it is static ...
... your brain is doing the moving!

Isn't this FUN ?!?!!

To explain what's happening here;
it's a healthy sign when you see the movement!

Seeing the circles move means your eyes are relaxed and happily moving too.
If you stare at this picture, (i.e. your eyes stop moving and you don't blink)
then the circle movement will stop and pretty soon the picture will go blurry.
That's a strain for your eyes and not recommended other than briefly to
verify it for yourself.

Notice that when you truly look at it in a relaxed way,
allowing the eyelids to softly blink, then the exact area where you are
looking (small center part of your field of vision) doesn't turn, but
all the circles in your peripheral vision are merrily doing their circle dance.

You'll see most movement when you allow your attention to
continuously and smoothly glide over the image.

Motion for vision This optical illusions demonstrates how essential motion is for vision. When motion stops blindness will (temporarily) follow.
Moving dot illusion Another optical illusion that shows the essence of motion for vision. This one is also great to test your blinking habits on! If you do as it says, and 'stare' at the center +, then you'll get what they predict. However, if you blink regularly, you'll continue seeing the pink dots! Try it, you'll like it ;-)
