What part of the eye is responsible for illusions?

In science class we are learning about the eye and I am so confused. HELP!!!!!!!!

You actually see with your brain, the back part of your brain is called the occipital lobe. Your eyes are organs that let in light, this light focuses on a part inside of your eye with special cells that absorb different colors turns it into basically codes which go down your nerves to to back of your brain which will turn it into the image that we see. SO an illusion could be a chemical that bids to receptors in the back of your brain or even like glitch's in the way the light you see is bent and it will seem like it is something else. Like watching cartoons, a bunch of slightly different still images that when flipped through fast enough give the illusion of a moving picture.

It depends on the illusion, hun. It's usually the part of the brain that processes the information sent from the eyes and converts it into what you see as sight. But it all depends on the illusion.

Well.... The brain determines what the eye is seeing, so the brain has to be responsible for illusions. The eye is just a sensor.

Did you know that everything you see u are actually seeing upside down, your brain instinctively interprets the image and displays it correctly?
