It might sound like something straight out of Q’s laboratory or the latest Marvel film but a group of scientists in California have successfully created eye drops that temporarily enable night vision.

Science for the Masses, an independent “citizen science” organisation that operates from the city of Tehacapi, theorised that Chlorin e6 (Ce6), a natural molecule that can be created from algae and other green plants, could enhance eyesight in dark environments.

The molecule is found in some deep sea fish, forms the basis of some cancer therapies and has been previously prescribed intravenously for night blindness.

I wonder how many deep sea fish they require to make that eye drops.

I would any day prefer goggles to actually putting drops in my eyes. I would be scared about the side effects.

It says that more research will need to be conducted to measure the actual amount of electrical stimulation increase in the eye whilst the long term effects of the procedure will require further investigation.

Sounds like another one of those "scientists discover cure to cancer" news articles that you read once, and never hear about ever again.

If anything, we will all be old and grey before a product like this is widely available for purchase.

Yeah let them try on themselves a couple of times and if they don't get blind, I would still not use it and wait till they try on some more people and wait some more months till it is confirmed that there are no delayed side-effects. And then I'll ask some people I know/Don't like to try it and if everything's ok and they're fine then I might consider using it, in-fact I might not use it even then coz you never know.

I heard of night vision contact lenses, but this is going a bit too far, especially that we are constantly finding new things that are giving us cancer. Recently they discovered that proton beams can kill cancer, which turned out to be extremely helpful in curing places difficult to reach like the eyes, so it's time to balance the scales again. Wink

Imagine how they will work with a scope  Smiley

they don't need to kill any deep sea fish to make it. Ce6 is made from Chlorella (fresh water algae) and some green plants. so they can just grow some Chlorella and make it.
Ce6 could also damage your eyes.

Yeah I'd be a bit wary of putting something like that in my eyes, even if the drops do come from natural substances.

Would be epic if they could make night vision glasses (maybe even contact lenses), I'm sure there are plenty of military contracters who would find technology like that very useful.
