Researchers develop revolutionary contact lens

Experts in the US are developing a new type of contact lens which they claim may be able to revolutionise the way we live.

University of Washington researchers state that the new contact lenses could even monitor people"s health.

Professor Babak Parviz, who led the research, explained that the lens is designed to display and monitor information about the wearer"s health, as it uses tiny electronic and bio-sensing devices to monitor the biochemistry of the eye surface.

Meanwhile, in a recent study published in Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science, researchers revealed unprecedented three-dimensional information about the retina of four species of raptors using a non-invasive, powerful imaging tool, which may lead to the creation of new ways to study the eyes of birds of prey.
