If you wear glasses and feel like you’ve always been at a disadvantage, this optical illusion is one time where your short sightedness is actually an advantage.

In an optical illusion that has been shared to online forum Reddit, a LEGO image has left the internet stumped.

User theJoyofMotion posted the image, with the hint: “The more you squint, the clearer it becomes.”

For those who struggle to squint, one commenters tip to take off your glasses – if you wear them – will ironically make everything crystal clear.

The illusion has sparked hundreds of comments on Reddit, and if you know your art it might be a bit more obvious for you.

“You know you are an art teacher when you don't even squint and immediately know what it is,” one user wrote.
