Even if you have 20/20 vision, your eyes can often deceive you. There's a photograph making the rounds on the internet, and it is the perfect example of how much your eyes can play tricks on you.
The picture, which was captioned "Optical Illusion Dog," was recently uploaded to Reddit by user 'chadwalk,' and has since baffled people on the internet. The image has been garnering some hilarious reactions from those who can't seem to figure out what they're seeing.
"This dog broke my biological face recognition module," wrote one user. Another commented, "Ouch, this hurts my brain."

Did you manage to figure out what is going on the in photo?
If you think there's something off about one of the dog's faces, you're not alone, but you've been going about it all wrong.
"I just spent two minutes spinning my phone around trying to see this dog after already coming to terms about how great the owners are for adopting this poor dog, while taking solace in the fact that he doesn't know he's different, only to find out he's ok after all," wrote one Reddit user. "What a roller coaster!"
If you still haven't figured it out, we can help.
First of all, no dogs were harmed in the making of this illusion. If you're concerned about the dog in the middle, don't worry, they're absolutely fine.
The reason why the canine looks deformed is because it is resting in an awkward position. Try tilting your head while looking at the photo, it'll put things into a different perspective.
If you're still having trouble deciphering the illusion, this will make it easier:
Turns out, the silly dog in the center of the image has its head tilted back and sideways, but at first glance people see the dog's left eye as his right, and his nose as his left eye, which looks like it is injured.
"It took me way longer than It should have to figure out the dogs head was almost upside down to appear as it does," wrote one user.
It's just like the dress and shoe debate all over again, and like another user said, no matter how many of these puzzling photos you come across, it is almost always "harder than you'd expect."
