The new generation of contact lenses is being called “smart lenses,” and they are packed with circuits, sensors and wireless technology – all designed to keep an eye on your health.
“There’s a possibility to develop a really, really important new tool for medicine,” said Babak Parviz, PH.D., the developer of the Smart Lens.
A team of researchers at the University of Washington built and are testing the smart lens. They believe it could one day replace the standard blood test.
“It allows for a very noninvasive, continuous monitoring of the human body,” said Parviz.
Researchers say biomarkers found in the blood – such as cholesterol, sodium, potassium and glucose – can also be found on the surface of the eye.
One lens can monitor glucose and radio out the result.
