University of Michigan engineers discover how using graphene in a contact lens could give its wearer infrared vision.
Technology has advanced to the point where we can have computers in our contact lenses, but they aren't comfortable. One scientist is changing this.
Though I'm visually impaired, I've never been much of a contacts guy. Something about having something on my eyes all the time freaks me out. Though, my glasses never do project images that I can see just by having my eyes open. While contacts could for a while, the technology has gotten even better.
We've seen remarkable contact lenses that allow for virtual reality vision, wash your eyes with medicated tears, or give you vampire or blinged out pupils. These are all very cool, but now one researcher is developing a contact lens that could save lives of diabetics by monitoring blood sugar and changing color accordingly.
Remember those Terminator style augmented reality contacts we saw earlier this year? Well the team developing them has finally tested the first prototypes on some bunnies, and have declared the test to be a complete success.
If you need eye drops for allergies or any other eye issues, you know how uncomfortable dripping those drops onto your eyeball can be. That nasty feeling might soon be just a distant memory, once these medicated contact lenses get approved.
If you're a contact lens wearer, you're well aware that you're supposed to toss your contacts every two weeks or a month, depending on what type of contacts you have. If you wait too long, gross bacteria grows on...
Diseases that cause blindness, such as glaucoma, are treatable if they're caught early. Unfortunately, not everybody goes to get their eyes checked all that often if they think nothing's wrong. That's why a couple of researchers at UC Davis have...
