Smart contact lens : Tears will tell the condition of heart, Will also record Blood sugar levels

New Delhi : You will no longer need to give blood samples for blood sugar report. Now scientists have developed a smart contact lens that will give information about blood sugar and heart disease through the readings of tears. There will be direct data transfer from the lens sensor to the computer and that too wireless.

Researchers in the US, UK and China have created an amazing smart contact lens. After applying it, you will be able to monitor your diseases. This contact lens will check the blood sugar level in the body with the help of tears and alert you. According to Professor Yunlong Zhao, a member of the lens making team, this smart lens will give information about diseases along with enhancing the light of the eyes.

This lens first checks the level of blood sugar present in the tears and then sends that data wirelessly to the computer. After that, it can be seen on the computer how much risk of sugar and heart disease are there.

Professor Shiki Guo of Harvard University involved in research says that this lens is quite thin. A sensor and a circuit are placed between the two lenses. As soon as tears come in contact with these sensors, the sensor sends data to the computer with the help of the circuit. Microchip has also been used in this lens.

The great thing is that zoom in and zoom out is also provided in these lenses. For example, if you want to zoom in on something then you have to blink an eye. This lens also has night vision, that is, you will be able to see at night also. US startup Mojo Vision has said that it will launch a prototype of this smart lens by the end of this year.
