Boyuto is the Orisha of Illusion. He has dominion over perception, mirages, hallucinations, vision, second sight, and ESP. Illusions and mirages are his weapons as are blurred vision, double vision, and faulty vision. Boyuto controls optical illusions. When he wishes, he creates mental confusion and disorientation.
On the other hand, Boyuto can bestow the gifts of enhanced night vision, psychic vision, and clairvoyance. As a healing spirit, he has dominion over illnesses associated with sight including cataracts, glaucoma, blindness, or any sort of impaired visions. Healers and physicians who are eye specialists may invoke his assistance, as may magicians and conjurers who depend on the power of illusion and misdirecting the eye.
