Most of us rely on our eyes a lot more than we would think. Our eyesight is what helps us to better understand this world.

Sometimes our eyes can process information quicker than we can think. Our eyes are without a doubt good at what they do. There is a part of our eyes known as the ‘yellow dot’ which process about ten percent of the things we see. We rely on this ‘yellow dot’ for a lot of things without this ‘yellow dot’ and our peripheral vision we would not be able to get a clear view of what is going on in the world around us.

However, on occasion, there is too much going on and our eyes don’t capture things quite correctly. Can you think of an instance where this has happened? No? Well, by the end of this article you will have a good idea of exactly what I mean. This test is really simple and only involves looking at the faces of celebrities. Faces that are easily recognizable to be exact.

Let’s begin:

See Brad Pitt here? Looks pretty normal right?

What about Kendall Jenner? Anything wrong with her? No? Okay, let’s keep going.

Jesse McCartney, still normal?

Now focus on the cross in the middle of the GIF below. Anything weird happening now?

The celebrity faces appear distorted because of the movements. Your eyes are not able to accurately process the information they are receiving and therefore our eyes are not sending our brain an accurate image. At least there’s an explanation for these beautiful airbrushed people to look like something from the hills have eyes, right? I find it quite interesting how our eyes work. Wouldn’t it be a bummer if things were always like that?

If this eye trick got you thinking share it with your friends!
