Google was granted a Patent to Manufacture Contact Lenses with an embedded chip to monitor blood glucose level in diabetics tears. In earlier findings, it was reported that Google was working with pharmaceutical company Novartis to create the contact lens.
The official announcement was reported in January 2014, that Google was developing smart contact lenses. The contact lens would measure the glucose levels in diabetics’ tears.
