Geometric optical illusions are studied. A basic structure of the visual system is defined. A structures of the underlying perceptual space is developed based on the above definitions. A few well known illusions are studied with assuming this nature of the perceptual space. The model is tested for limitations. The model performs reasonably well for all but contrast illusions. A few ways of solving this limitation are discussed which are present in the literature.
