Superb question!

The wavelength is far too small.


The naked eye can only resolve approx. 1/10 mm at 30 cm and the wavelength of visible light is typically a million times shorter than this. Sorry, but until you develop those super-powers, light waves will remain invisible!

On the other hand radio waves (at 300 MHz) have a wavelength of 1m, but we are not sensitive to these wavelengths because it was not evolutionarily valuable ... there is nothing in our environment that emits at this wavelength we need to know about for our survival.
