You don't see everything

Your perception is suppressed before a movement of your eyes. You cannot see your eyes moving when looking into a mirror. Look at the left eye, look at the right eye. Only an external observer will see the movement of your eyes.

Your perception is resumed when the image stops being blurred. That is, when the velocity of the eye matches the relative velocity of the object. That also allows you to see non-blurred details outside of a running train window.
