I have been told that the human eye, under a condition of altered atomic state of certain vision-related retinal substances, presents a visual capability under near-infrared "light". That is, under such a condition, the human eye will see objects that are illuminated by, or that emit near-infrared "light". Is that really true ? If so, how does it work ? What causes it ? Is that a normal, or an abnormal eye condition ? Under such a condition, which would be the near-infrared band width perceived as visible light by such an human eye ? On the practical side, what can be expected from this ?
