Imagine you could gain the ability to see in the dark using a special kind of eye drop.

It could be fun for anyone taking a night hike, and critically helpful for rescue teams or people working in dangerous environments at night.

Enhanced night vision might be more than a cool idea. An experiment performed a group of California biohackers shows it might be possible already — though they caution that they did this for research purposes and don't know if the eyedrops they created are necessarily safe, especially in the long term. Something that allows more light into your eyes could cause cellular damage.

Don't try this at home, in other words. 

The group of independent researchers, Science for the Masses, decided to use a chemical that's used to treat night blindness, a condition that makes it hard for people to see in dim light, to try and enhance low-light vision in healthy people.

They devised a solution made of the chemical chlorin e6 (Ce6), insulin, and dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO).

Ce6 is a natural molecule that's the key to light amplification here — it's the chemical used to treat night blindness, and it's also used in some cancer treatments. It can be found in deep sea fish and also made from algae and other plants. The insulin and DMSO both help the eye absorb the Ce6.
