Ocular proof is a phrase from the play othello by shakespeare. The villian Iago leads the titular character to believe that his wife desdemona has cheated on him. Othello asks Iago to provide some ocular proof to prove thar desdemona is indeed false. So, ocular proof means something akin to 'seeing is believing,' Othello wants to see for himself that his wife is having an affair. 'ocular proof' also fits in with the theme of vision that the play has, there is constant mention of things seeming a certain way, vision being clouded. i hope this is not too late to help
