Contact Lenses May Help Monitor Glucose Level Soon

Scientists developed a transparent sensor for contact lenses that soon will be able to monitor the glucose level in patients with diabetes.glucose level

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.”
