    The intriguing illusion has been confusing players on social media as there's a hidden number somewhere.

    In a Twitter post, user TheFigen_ wrote: "Eye test! What number do you see?"

    The picture has a multitude of numbers that are hidden amid a vibrant red background.

    So do you think you can find the hidden numbers faster than others?

    Since the post was shared on May 16, it racked up over 220 retweets and 2,000 likes.

    One person wrote: "At first, I can't see any numbers, then as I stare at it, I saw number 7 first.

    "Then 5 followed by 1. But the numbers layout 571?"

    Another added: "571 and there's a letter between 7 and 1."

    A third user commented: "I see a migraine."

    While a fourth admitted: "That depends so much on the screen quality."

    Others on Twitter joked they saw the number "69" and "420".

    In case you're still struggling, it's obvious the number in the image is 571 as you'll be able to spot it after squinting.

    Optical illusions happen when your brain and eyes try to speak to each other but the interpretation gets mixed up.

    Sometimes the brain will make your eyes think something is moving, but it's not always the case.
