Some people think you shouldn't believe anything you can't see with your own two eyes. But what if even your eyes deceive you?!

On Saturday, TODAY's Dylan Dreyer called on Instagram for backup after a disagreement erupted at work over the color of a dress. (Does that situation sound familiar to anyone else?)

"Help!!" Dylan captioned the photo. "Debate in the makeup room: I think these blues are the exact same color. Everyone else thinks one is purple and one is blue #sameordifferent."

As of Sunday afternoon, over 1,800 commenters were divided on whether the dress is blue, like the Vaseline tin, or purple. (Well, except for the few who saw gold and white!)

At the time of the other blue dress debate, eye surgeon Paul Dougherty told TODAY that the disconnect stems from "a perception issue."

"It's the way the brain processes information that comes in,” Dougherty explained. “Everyone's brain is different, so even though it's the same stimulus coming in, which it is, everyone processes the information differently."

That's why not even Cinderella's famous ball gown is immune to debate.

So ... what do you think? Do you agree with Dylan that the dress and tin are the exact same color? Cast your vote below!
