The video you're about to watch could say a lot about your vision.
AsapSCIENCE created the video using a hybrid image of Albert Einstein and Marilyn Monroe. Beginning with the image up close, the narrator explains that if the viewer sees Einstein right away, their vision is in good shape. If they see Marilyn Monroe, however, it might be time to get some glasses or contacts.
The image is then shrunk and brought further away from the screen before slowly being brought back into full focus. The farther the image, the more it looks like Monroe. The closer, the more it's supposed to appear to be Einstein.
"Depending on how well you're able to focus or pick up contrast, your eye will only pick out certain details," the narrator explained. "Up close we're generally able to see fine details like Einstein's mustache and wrinkles, but as the distance increases or if your vision is poor and thus creates a more blurred image in the first place, your ability to pick up details fades away."
