A new study says it might be possible to get infrared night vision by a simple injection in the eyes. Researchers at the University of Science and Technology of China say they were able to give mice “night vision” by injecting “nanoparticles” into their eyes. They said the night vision lasts up to ten weeks with little or no side effects. Some mice did develop cloudy corneas after the injection, but it cleared up in a few days. The scientists say the nanotechnology works by binding with the retinal cells in the eye that convert light into electric signals. The lead author of the study says it could serve as the basis for human “super vision.”
