Jin Shang, a professor of biochemical engineering at the University of Western Ontario, has invented a contact lens that changes color when sugar levels change in the blood.

medical inventionsThose suffering from diabetes need to draw blood to check sugar levels.

Nanoparticles implanted in contact lenses interact with glucose molecules in tears. This interaction changes the color of the lens to indicate varying sugar levels.

This new medical invention could eliminate the need to draw blood to monitor glucose.

Dr Zhang's research received funding from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation to develop more nanocomposite applications for biomedicine.

Heartiest congratulations to this student, this invention is very helpful in medical science, I am a diabetes patient since last 2 years as I know how much it is difficult and time consuming to check blood sugar regularly and thanks again for giving this precious gift to medical science
