It’s no secret that the Team guys who busted bin Laden might have been wearing “cat vision” contact lenses that literally give the wearer night vision for a limited time without having to wear the bulky, heavy NVGs.
According to Kit Up’s editor Christian Lowe, he heard a rumor that “contact lenses that literally give the wearer night vision for a limited time without having to wear the bulky, heavy NVGs (Night Vision Goggles).”
The blink powered night vision contact lenses allow a person to see clearly in low- light environments by enhancing ambient light up to 200 per cent. These lenses use plasma technologies to eliminate the cumbersome and expensive image-intensification tubes used in convention night-vision goggles. The advantages of using the contact lenses above night-vision goggles are
1) full peripheral vision,
2) more comfortable interface,
3) a more cost-effective system, and
4) less disorientation with use.
