Trick of the eye


Unbelievable. Mirage. A deception of eyesight either accidental or manipulated. A trick of the eye would be to see a long-dead friend walking down the street or clouds that appear to look like a train.

“I watched the magician do a card show and it was only by a trick of the eye that he made it work.”
