A young boy from China, who was born with extremely bright, shining blue eyes, has doctors baffled by his ability to see in complete darkness.

Nong Youhui of Dahua, China, has eyes that reflect neon green when light is shined directly on them like those of a Siamese cat, which can also see very well in the dark.

Doctors have studied Nong’s eyes ever since his dad took him to the hospital when he was an infant, concerned about his beaming blue irises.

“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”, his Dad said.

Though Nong can play outside like a regular child, he experiences discomfort in very bright sunlight.

To test just how well Nong can see in the dark, a Chinese journalist gave him a written questionnaire to complete in a pitch black room. Nong was able to read and write perfectly in this environment. He can see as clearly in the dark as most people can during the day.

According to the World Record Academy, Nong is the first human to display perfect sight in the dark.
