How well can gliders see when it is very dark in the room? Are they like some animals that have great vision with no light?

I am not sure anyone can know for sure how their vision is in the dark, but since the are nocturnal animals I would assume their vision is really good in the dark.

I don't know how good it is, nor am I able to measure it in any way.

But I know that when I'm in bed, and it is very dark in my bedroom, the gliders can see when I'm awake and watching them, vs when I'm asleep (or my eyes are closed, not watching them).

Also - if I'm asleep and I wake up and move - it sometimes startles them. It is not the sound of the moving, but them seeing (or sensing?) the movement that startles them.

I know they can see in lighting that is far too dim for my eyes.
