Contact Lenses May Help Monitor Glucose Level Soon
This transparent sensor has been developed by the researchers from Oregon State University, USA. It uses a nanostructured transistor that can detect subtle glucose changes in physiological buffer solutions like the tear fluid in eyes. Such sensors will be able to transmit real-time information about blood sugar level to a wearable pump delivering the hormones that are necessary for blood sugar regulation.
Greg Herman, a professor at Oregon State University, says: “We have fully transparent sensors that are working. We can integrate an array of sensors into the lens and also test for other things: stress hormones, uric acid, pressure sensing for glaucoma, and things like that.”
