After Images are a visual distortion that can be described as an image continuing to appear in one's vision after the exposure to the original image has ceased. A common form of after images is the bright glow that seems to float before one's eyes after looking into a light source for a few seconds. This effect is similar to tracers but differs in the way that it does not create smooth blurs behind moving objects.
Within hallucinogen usage, still overlayed images of moving objects are commonly left in place of where the object once was. This creates a series of overlayed images across one's visual field which become less distinct the further away they are from the moving object's current position. Another manifestation of this effect can be described as being able to see the external environment for several seconds after one closes their eyes before it gradually fades away.
