Millions of diabetic patients have to frequently prick their fingers to track their glucose level. Using this common method, diabetic patients are more susceptible to infections and pain. Studies have shown that blood glucose levels are directly correlated to glucose levels found in tear fluid. Using this analogy that correlates tear and blood glucose levels, a contact lens that could continuously and wirelessly monitor glucose levels in the tear fluid can be implemented to provide an alternative non-invasive method to monitor diabetes.
