Dark Adapted Eye is a compilation album by Danielle Dax, an English experimental musician, formerly of The Lemon Kittens. Released in 1988 on Sire Records on LP, cassette and CD, it consisted of material from albums and singles released on her own label, Awesome Records, and was the first release of her material in North America. After being out of print for years, the CD was reissued in the U.S. by the Noble Rot label in 2008. All tracks were produced by Dax and co-written by David Knight.


This compilation album could be considered an expanded international edition of her third album, Inky Bloaters, except that it only has 10 of the 11 tracks from that album. "Born To Be Bad" is missing, and only appears on the Inky Bloaters album, and nowhere else.

Cover artwork is by Holly Warburton.
