Google and pharmaceutical giants Novartis are teaming up to develop Google Lens, a smart contact lens that could have a wide array of medical applications. The technology-packed lenses could help people suffering from visibility problems and other illnesses.
The lenses will be fitted with a glucose sensor as well as a chip and antenna that receive power and transmit information.
The lenses could be embedded with technology capable of analyzing lacryglobin, a chemical found in tears that acts as a biological marker for several different kinds of cancers.
The Google Lens could even be used to assist drug delivery into the wearer's system. It could be designed to dispense medication over a period of time, which could be more effective than providing short, concentrated doses as is the case with regular eye drops.
