Thanks to the new Contact lens retinopathy, people can now test for diabetes without an invasive instrument. The reports are also available almost instantly and wirelessly.
This new invention serves as a diabetic testing and tracing kit as an alternative to invasive blood tests. Future innovations will allow the contact lens to wirelessly and locally dispense medicine through the contact lens. This medicine will enter through the eye using retinopathy.

This helps treat complicated illnesses like diabetes retinopathy, which includes damage to the blood vessels presents just behind the eyes.
