Color Changing Contact lens – Monitors eye disease treatment

Color Changing Contact lens – Monitors eye disease treatment

ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces

For all the good they do, eye drops and ointments have one major drawback: It’s hard to tell how much of the medication is actually getting to the eye. Now in a study appearing in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, scientists report that they have developed a contact lens that changes color as drugs are released. This visual indicator could help eye doctors and patients readily determine whether these medications are where they should be.
