A group of ‘biohackers’ based in California have successfully injected a specialized liquid solution into the eyeballs of a volunteer. The liquid solution gave him night vision, stated  Science. Mic.

The liquid used for the injection was Chlorin e6 (or Ce6), a chlorophyll analog found in some deep-sea fish which is known for having light-amplifying properties. It was dripped into volunteer biochemist Gabriel Licina’s eyes, reported mothernaturenetwork.com

“To me, it was a quick, greenish-black blur across my vision, and then it dissolved into my eyes,” explained Licina to mnn.com.

The effect kicked in within an hour and lasted for a nonspecific “many hours,” giving Licina night-vision or low-light vision, to be precise out to a range of about 50 meters, according to the research report.
