Irregular Circles Illusion

Irene Román found this illusion, while looking for some in Google. She asked us if these two concentric circles below look irregular? "They obviously are", some of you may say. I did as well! Well, since this is optical illusions website - they’re not! This type of visual phenomena is well known to me. I have shared over a dozen of similar variations in the past, haven't I? But this one probably shares the strongest effect! When I look at it up close, I understand that they are regular, but still have trouble seeing them regular as a whole. Nifty, ayeh? I have linked some words in this text to help you compare this illusion with some very similar from the past.
