We’re not sure if this can technically be called Googley Eyes as it’s only the lens after all, but Google have developed a smart contact lens that can monitor the glucose levels in the eye.

Google made the announcement this morning that they have formed a partnership with Swiss pharmaceutical company “Novartis” to help develop it.

The concept was first announced by Google in in January this year, describing that the technology works using tiny sensors and microchips fitted into contact lenses that can then measure and read the amount of glucose in tears.

The lens can then send the information to a mobile device so diabetics can manage and monitor their condition. Of course the device can also be used to alert in the event of emergency should the levels become critical.
