Contact Lens for Diabetics



I’d worked in the pharma industry for 5 years and I know how hard it is to manage diabetes. No wonder there are so many innovations focused on monitoring changing blood sugar level. Among these new invention ideas is a hydrogel contact lens sensor that changes colors as the user’s glucose levels varied. No need to undergo regular blood tests.

Developed at University of Western Ontario by Jin Zhang, it has received more than $200,000 funding from the Canadian government and I can only hope that it will be a successful endeavor.
