Smart Contact Lens

Diabetes Mellitus patients may be using contact lenses to measure glucose instead of suffering repeated pricks.  Google and Alcon are developing a Smart Contact Lens with microchip implanted that measures the glucose in their tear film. We may be fitting diabetes mellitus patients for contact lenses soon! I think it is an exciting use of eye technology.
