Boy Born With Cat Eyes, Can See In The Dark - Geekologie

Nong Youhui is a Chinese boy who was born with cat eyes that glow in the dark and enable him to see like a cat in the night (possibly as a result of nuclear waste). He can allegedly see as well in the dark as you can in the light.

Dad Ling said: "They told me he would grow out of it and that his eyes would stop glowing and turn black like most Chinese people but they never did."

Experts believe he was born with a rare condition called leukodermia which has left his eyes with less protective pigment and more sensitive to light.

Medical reason for his ability aside, I'd say this is quite cool. Makes me wonder if he'll have any negative consequences related to his eyesight at some point in his life due to leukodermia, though.

This is probably an evolutionary step now that most children spend their lives in their dark bedrooms always leaving the lights off. =p

Interesting find. Let's hope it's not an evolutionary step due to the affliction, Schofield. =p

Whilst I think it's quite cool to have glowing eyes in the dark, I think it's not worth it in the end considering the high sensitivity to light, especially since most of us spend most of our activities in daylight (although this may not apply to everyone).

It'd suck to not be able to go outside in daylight without having to protect your eyes in whichever ways possible.

Sounds cool, no more eating Carrots for that young kid. Am curious though, how is his eye sight during the day?

I have a feeling that he'll get a visit from a representative for "Xavier's School For Gifted Youngsters". :lulz:

Seems like a really cool ability to have. Natural nightvision. I want it! :)

I must conduct research!

seriously I'm really interested if they do any testing (humane of course), this is kind of like the strongest boy in the world.

This seems like the sort of thing that'll probably result in eye cancer, if something as simple as having blue eyes makes you more likely to get eye cancer then I've no idea what sort of risk factor this is. I see polarized lenses in this kid's future.

I wondered the same as I read the text. My guess is that they're overly sensible which could cause discomfort... On the other side, cats can see perfectly in the day.

Everyone seems to be missing the "possibly as a result of nuclear waste" part in this blurb.

Is everyone just sorta taking that for granted, perhaps? I mean, c'mon, PRC.
