Amazing Contact lenses!

Smart contact lenses might come to be a reality soon; these smart contact lenses will attach to the human eye like normal contact and using the same augmented reality Google glasses have, people will have access to computers and smartphones through these lenses. research has also shown that these lenses could improve the vision of about 253 million people that have one or more of the following vision conditions: cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and retinal detachment.

Surgically implanting these lenses inside the eye was one of the first options for smart lenses. These lenses would be surgically implanted inside the eye to replace the existing lenses. Doctors would use fluids to fuse and place the lenses inside the eye to improve vision. To keep the electrical parts of the lenses working while these are inside the eye, the scientist would attach miniaturized solar power or a piezoelectric sensor to the lenses to create energy.

However, there are not too many people who would like to have an electronic device implanted inside the eye, therefore, a better option was brought up. This option was the contact lenses, which are easy to put on and off. While people wear these lenses the lenses can check different kinds of health metrics, such as blood glucose and intraocular pressure. Besides, tracking all kinds of different health metrics these contact lenses can also improve peoples’ vision by changing the focus of the lens depending on what people are trying to see.

Currently, only smart lenses to measure eye pressure and to monitored glaucoma are available. It may take years of research before the other smart contacts are available to the general public.
