Smart Contact Lens Doubles as Blood-Sugar Monitor

Posted by Biophlox Admin 11/02/2018 4 Comment(s)

Scientists have designed a smart contact lens to measure the wearer’s blood sugar without using a needle. So far, the needle-less prototype has only been tested in rabbits — and it’s not clear if it’s even possible to accurately monitor blood sugar using tears. But if it works, it would be a massive upgrade for people with diabetes.


The scientists, led by Jang-Ung Park at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology(UNIST) in the Republic of Korea, tested the contact lens using artificial tears spiked with sugar to mimic the low glucose levels measured in tears by earlier studies.

 

The device is the latest attempt to develop a needle-less blood sugar monitor for diabetics. 

 

The idea behind a smart contact lens is not new. In 2014, Google revealed it was developing a lens capable of measuring blood sugar levels using a wireless chip and mini-sensor to measure glucose. The project is managed by Verily, a company under Google parent Alphabet that specializes in healthcare tech.

 

So far, the needle-less prototype has only been tested in rabbits — and it’s not clear if it’s even possible to accurately monitor blood sugar using tears. But if it works, it would be a massive upgrade for people with diabetes.

 

A new contact lens tests tears to tell wearers when glucose levels drop, so there'll be no more need for painful finger pricks
