New Smart Contact Lens Approved by FDA

A new study appearing in the journal Ophthalmology shows that electronic signals from a smart contact lens can be used to predict which glaucoma patients may have a faster advancing version of the disease.  “This could be very useful if you want to know whether a new medication is working for a patient,” said study author C. Gustavo De Moraes, M.D., MPH, an associate professor of ophthalmology at Columbia University Medical Center.  “You can see how their eye is reacting to the therapy in a much more meaningful way.”

Such a smart contact lens has recently been approved by the FDA.  To learn more about the lens and how it works follow this link to an article on the AAO site.
