New Contact Lenses for Self-monitoring Diabetes and Glaucoma

Wearing smart contact lenses equipped with wireless bio-sensors can be used to monitor health status including blood sugar levels and intraocular pressure in diabetes, according to recent research. The main aim of this research was to develop a patient-friendly device equipped with wireless electronic bio-sensors that can be worn by the patient. The device can detect changes in the health, alert the patient and transmit the information to a health professional for appropriate intervention.
