Introduction: Night Vison Eyedrops!

About: I absolutly love airplanes and just about anything with an airfoil. I own 6 Chickens and love inventing and building stuff.

Night vision eyedrops a fantesy? Not any more! But, PLESE READ THE FOLLOWING: Do NOT put this in you'r eye, this instructable is bacicly a documentry! Putting unknown things in your eye in NOT SAFE! But we (there is a science fair coming up so my friends and I have a team) DID test it and it worked! (there needed to be more clorphill in the ratio) So it wasent a very powerful inhansment but oh well it works! Once I told my mom she told us NOT to test it anymore...

If you are stuped enough to actually put it in you'r eye then DON'T BLAME ME!!!!

P.s, I got the awared for "Unlimeted Capabilities" so yay for me!

Step 1: Matirials

You will need:
Pine nettles
Butter knife
Some sort of water container (cups)
Test tube with cork (Or a cup with plastic wrap rubberbanded on top of it)
(OPTIONAL):
Magnifind glass
Tweesers
Funnel

Step 2: Steps!

This is actully really easy! Just follow the steps!

Step 3: Done!

And vulla you are done! Once again DO NOT PUT IN YOU'R EYE!

Step 4: Presintation

I was asked to put a presentation on the instructable so here it is!

The writen part:      NIGHT VISION EYEDROPS
We discovered that deep ocean dwelling fish can see in low light easier because they produce their own chlorophyll in their eyes. So we assume that if we put eye drops with chlorophyll it would enhance vision in low light. (The pigment absorbs hues of red light that are normally invisible in dim conditions. That information is then transmitted to the brain, allowing enhanced vision.) This theory has been already invented and successfully tested on mice. BUT it has to be injected into the eye and is permanent. We want to make it painless and temporary by using eye drops. This can be very useful in the army.

The video is me and my friend extracting chlorophyll from the pine needdles.

    I would say making a contact with the liquid may work but I would really suggest not putting contacts in the solution. If there is a max amount you can use safely the contact might force too much in your eye

    It's confusing, he says do not put it in eyes, yet on the image he says it works?

    SOOOO...is there any STERILE way to harvest chlorophyl and make these eye drops? if so, how would one go about doing it?

    im assuming this acts in the same way the drops the eye doctor uses in the way that it dilates your puils therefore allowing more ambient light to enter your eyes making it easier to see in the dark ( eye doctors use it becuase it dilates your pupils large enough they can look into the back of your eye with their instraments) however, it dilate your pupils...alot.....so one might mistake you of using drugs which also dilate the pupils...alot.............that and TRSUT me it STILL makes things that are ALREADY bright ALOT brighter.............aka dont stare at the sun

    Well acutually this is how it works: The pigment absorbs hues of red light that are normally invisible in dim conditions. That information is then transmitted to the brain, allowing enhanced vision. So therefore it doesnot diolate puples, chlorophyll is a pigment found in plants.

    If it was to absorb red light then it would actually reduce the total intensity of the light entering the eye.

    How is it (you think) the information is transmitted to the brain?

    No, see, really there is invisible red light that we can't see. It is everywere. And the chlorophyll picks up that red light. So I assume that you will only see in red. But you can still see in the dark.

    the invisible red light is called infrared light
    infra- within, it is light that has a shorter wave length than red.
    also applyable to ultraviolet
    ultra- outside, it is light that has a longer wave length than violet.
    now you know, knowing is half the battle, G.I.Joe!

    In another comment you said that your friend said he saw "everything is rather whitish"
    So is it red or white?

    Invisible red light?
    Red light isn't invisible.
    What wavelengths of light does this affect and what wavelength is this "invisible red light" ?

    You still haven't answered my previous question of how the information is transmitted to the brain.

    What chemical reactions are happening ?

    The information is transmitted through the retina to the brain. The chlorophyll is a pigment, so there is no chemical reacton. Instead, the light filters through the chlorophyll revealing the red light. I don't know what wave langth the red is though, sorry.

    just reread this convo and i tthink you are refering to infrared light, which :
    -is not in the visible range of humans
    - isnt "everywhere" but is MOST of "everywhere"

    No, I'm afraid not. Adding pigments to the outside of your eye doesn't make any difference to the live light-collecting cells that are inside your eye (the retina).

    If the bacteria in tapwater is dangerous for your eyes, i recommend you all stop bathing immediately! Also stop going outside in the rain, keep away from sprinklers, and definately don't bother thinking before you type!

    Sir. I was 10 when I posted this, I dont even use this website anymore.
    Tapwater is only dangerous for your eyes if you have contacts and the water gets under them.

    I wasn't replying to you, I was replying to all the others who get on here and put their opinions down as expertly advice. I was actually impressed with this instructable, very intuitive and inventive concept for a young person to come up with!
