This Boy Can See In The Dark: He Literally Has Cat Eyes

The video above is of Nong Youghui, a boy that has stunned medics with his ability to see in pitch the dark with eyes that glow in the dark. When light hits his eyes, the lights show the reflection of the light, similar to what happens when you flash a light to a cat in the dark.

Doctors have studied Nong Youhui’s amazing eyesight since his dad took him to hospital in Dahua, southern China, he was deeply concerned over his bright blue eyes.

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.”  Medical tests conducted in complete darkness show Youhui can read perfectly without any light and sees as clearly as most people do during the day.

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. The precise cause of leukodermia is very complex and not fully understood. It is known that as a result of this auto-immune disorder, eyes are more sensitive to light and without as much protective pigment as would be found in normal eyes.

The actual video became popular in 2009, but just recently people started to find the video in different sites and, nothing ever came out of this child’s special ability but it’s still cool none of the less.
