How an eye shot could help YOU see in the dark: injection may be the key to night vision, researchers claim

  • An injection into the eye can make night vision possible after testing for mice
  • Researchers could help mice see the near infrared light of the dark by injecting their eyes with nanoparticles
  • This can lead to night vision for people like those in the Special Forces

It is a power that superheroes enjoy. Now ordinary people can come a step closer to see in the dark.

An injection into the eye can make night vision possible, researchers who have experimented with mice have found.

People cannot see in the dark without a large night vision because the human eye can only process a very small visible range of light.

However, the researchers were able to help mice see the near infrared light of the dark by injecting their eyes with nanoparticles, which normally intercept invisible light and shorten the wavelength to make it visible.

This can lead to night vision for people such as those in the Special Forces who currently need night vision equipment, or, in the shorter term, for police dogs.

Dr. Gang Han, the principal investigator behind the study, said: "If we had near infrared vision, we could see the universe in a whole new way.

& # 39; Maybe we can do infrared astronomy with the naked eye or have night vision without large equipment. & # 39;

The researchers present their results at the annual meeting of the American Chemical Society.
