Various nanomaterials have been enlisted for creating improved glucose sensors that help diabetics determine when their blood sugar levels are too high or low. There have also been various ways in which nanomaterials have been incorporated into contact lenses to enable a variety of new capabilities.

Now, a research team at Oregon State University (OSU) has brought together nano-enabled contact lenses and glucose sensors into a single device that may someday do double duty as a blood glucose monitor and a contro mechanism for deciding when to deliver insulin injections. The device, say the researchers, will be a transparent sensor embedded in a contact lens.
