This image can tell you if you need glasses

KNOXVILLE , Tenn. (WATE) – Neuroscience specialists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology developed an image that can determine the quality of your vision.

What do you see in the picture above? If you see Albert Einstein your vision is good. If you see Marilyn Monroe from a distance of one foot or less, you may want to consider a trip to the optometrist.

Try moving the image away from your face and your view could change.

According to Daily Mail, ‘Marilyn Einstein’ was created by superimposing a blurry picture of Marilyn Monroe over a picture of Albert Einstein drawn in fine lines.

Features with a high spatial frequency are only visible when viewing them close up, and those with low spatial frequencies are only visible at a distance.

Combining pictures of the two produces a single image which changes when the viewer moves closer or farther away from the screen.
