“We’re now testing a smart contact lens that’s built to measure glucose levels in tears using a tiny wireless chip and miniaturized glucose sensor that are embedded between two layers of soft contact lens material,” said the project co-founders Brian Otis and Babak Parviz. “We’re testing prototypes that can generate a reading once per second.”

The researchers are studying the possibility of integrating light signals that might warn the lens wearers when the blood glucose limits are exceeded.
