There Are 16 Circles In This Image, And Most People Can’t Find Them Right Away

Check out the pattern below. What do you see? A bunch of lines and boxes, right? Well, believe it or not, there are actually sixteen circles hiding in this eye trick. We know, it sounds crazy, but you’ll just have to trust us on this one.

It’s called the Coffer Illusion, and it was a finalist in the 2006 Best Optical Illusion Picture of the Year contest. It was created by Anthony Norcia, formerly of the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute, and it’s called the Coffer Illusion image because Coffer is an architectural term used to refer to a series of sunken panels in various shapes.

This mind trick was recently uploaded by somebody called i124nk8, and it’s been astounding and bamboozling the internet ever since. Some people can see the circles, and some people can’t. Can you? Then let us know in the comments below!

Optical illusions work by using color, light, and patterns to create cool images that are designed to confuse the brain. They occur because our mind is trying to interpret what our eyes see, thereby creating a perception that doesn’t match the real image in front of us.

I don't either. It's so easy, it probably had something to do with the angle you glanced at it.

I couldn't see them right away, but I tried changing focus and they appeared for me. I wonder if this would be a good device for training the muscles of the eye because it forces you to change focus to see it differently.

I have to disagree with calling the result circles. While it looks three dimensional, they remain rectangular!

Colin Roxburgh

A circle, by definition, is round and is depicted by a curved line. however, in this image all the lines are straight suggesting there are no circular shapes.

Ramona Jackson

I plainly see the circles that are between the rows but I also see the hint of circles between the columns. If you look at the outline of the bottom of a square and the top outline of the square below it, (or above), you will see the suggestion of a circle. It is like that between each square in each column in addition to the 16 that is between the rows. lol

The 16 were easy. They popped right out. but when i shift my vision into a 3D mode, I am able to see 20. Several people have told me that I am crazy that there are not 20 circles visible in any way but in the 3D mode there are clearly 4 rows of 5 circles. Can anyone else see these? We may be a special tribe.

There are no circles, there are circular shaped objects that can appear, but do not fit the definition of "circle" a round plane figure whose boundary (the circumference) consists of points equidistant from a fixed point (the center).

Stare at the image for a minute or so and close your eyes. In your mind's eyes you will see circles. Open your eyes and look at the image and you will see the circles. Once you see the circles, your mind can no longer hide them from you.

Once you see them, you can't unsee them. Just have to let your eyes go lazy while you focus on one point. Then they will jump out at you.

The very edge of the squares is what gives the outline for the circles. It's really cool when you finally see them! :) They pop out!

Focus on a single point, any will work. The illusion will present itself in a few seconds.

If I don't have to strain to see the circles, does that mean there's something wrong with me?

I don't either. It's so easy, it probably had something to do with the angle you glanced at it.

I couldn't see them right away, but I tried changing focus and they appeared for me. I wonder if this would be a good device for training the muscles of the eye because it forces you to change focus to see it differently.
