Night Enhancement Eyedrops Using Chlorin e6
A group that goes by the name science for the masses is pushing the boundaries of human sight. In an attempt to gain night vision these “biohackers” are lacing a member of their team (Gabriel Licina) eye’s with Chlorin e6 (or Ce6), which can be found in deep-sea, Midnight Zone dwelling fish. Sounds like a good time, right? Actually it sound’s like something you would expect to hear as the origin of a marvel mutant character. First they had to pry Gabriel’s eyes open with a speculum (so he can’t blink the solution out) and using “what’s basically a really fine turkey baster” they insert the Ce6 into the pupil. This sounds like a horror movie. He had to wear protective lenses in his eyes after the procedure to block out some of the light. That is why his eyes appear like they are completely nightmarish black. The real question is does this stuff work?
Here’s what they wrote in on their website:
“The Ce6 solution has been shown to work in as little as one hour, with the effects lasting for “many hours” afterwards. After 2 hours of adjustment, the subject and 4 controls were taken to a darkened area and subjected to testing. Three forms of subjective testing were performed. These consisted of symbol recognition by distance, symbol recognition on varying background colors at a static distance, and the ability to identify moving subjects in a varied background at varied distances. Symbol recognition consisted of placing a collection of objects with markings on them (numbers, letters, shapes). Subjects were then asked to identify the markings, each viewing the objects from the same location at a distance of 10 meters. The markings were not made prior to the moment of testing.
For subject recognition, individuals went moved in a small grove of trees. They were allowed to chose their own location independently. Distances ranged from 25 to 50 meters from observation point and trees and brush were used for “blending”. Locations were chosen without being observed by the test subjects. The Ce6 subject and controls were handed a laser pointer and asked to identify the location of the people in the grove. After testing the Ce6 subject replaced the sunglasses which were not removed until sleep. Eyesight in the morning seemed to have returned to normal and as of 20 days, there have been no noticeable effects.
The Ce6 subject consistently recognized symbols that did not seem to be visible to the controls. The Ce6 subject identified the distant figures 100% of the time, with the controls showing a 33% identification rate.”

Before you know it we will probably have created the next hybrid mutant species. Stan Lee was way ahead of his time.
