Flir might work great, not sure about night vision with the random lighting encountered in my scenario...but plenty of areas of near total darkness would probably benefit from them.
I had a hand held singular lens IR. What I found out, use it and try to see thought that eye after remove the hand held IR, it was like one burned out your eye. It took a while to get back to the night. The Flirs I have feed into a video screen, change the color to red and there is no vision problem when looking into the night when looking away from the IR display.
