The below images is a little boy who is commonly reffered to as the “Cat-boy" by his friends.

Nong Youhui, was born in Dahua territory of China with an uncommon condition known as leukoderma. Because of the disability, his eyes gleam in the dark and the kid is also believed to see early in the dark as a cats can.

The problem all started when the boy's dad discovered that his child's eyes shines in the dark like dimmed lights. He got stressed and took his child to the medical clinic, specialists suggested that this condition will go away with time and that his eyes will go back to normal as the boy grows.

The normal colour of Nong's eyes is blue, but they reflect Neon Green when light is shined into his eyes.

It was also discovered that so as to test his ability to see at night, a chinese columnist arranged a questionnaire and offered it to the kid to be answered in a totally dark room. The boy was able to answer the questions without any light. Animals can see in the dark with the presence of thin layer of cells known as Tapetum Lucidum.

Many stories and articles have tried to debunk the story of the cat eyed boy who can see in the dark. Some people argue that he might have Ocular albinism which might explain his difficulty with the bright light and unusually blue eyes and for seeing in the dark - he might have high concentration of rods in ratinas which would give the boy an upper edge for seeing in the dark.

"It is hard to say what the truth is about this boy," said Dennis Brooks, professor of ophthalmology at the University of Florida's College of Veterinary Medicine. "A good ophthalmic examination by a physician ophthalmologist is in order, I think."

Numerous stories and articles have attempted to debunk the story of the cat eyed boy who can see in the dark. A few people argued that he may have ocular albinism which might explain his difficulty with the bright light and unusually blue eyes and for seeing in the dark - he may have high concentration of rods in his retinas which would give the kid a high edge for seeing in the dark.
