It looks like diabetics may have a new hope and better living capabilities thanks to the efforts of researchers and scientist. In a latest medical breakthrough, a new range of eyeglasses and contact lens that are designed especially for diabetics will hit the market soon. Do not be fooled by the looks of the stylish eyeglasses or by the regular look of the contact lens. They are more than just a regular pair of glasses or lenses.
So what is this secret all about?
The upcoming range of glasses along with the lenses will have a special technology that will help to monitor the sugar levels of a diabetic. Along with that, it will also have a feature to make sure that the patient receives his or her refill of medicines on demand. The wireless communication and power up features are the highlights of this new and innovative product.
With the help of special technology, the constant lenses are also equipped with a drug-releasing feature. A patient can wear them for a month. The glasses are equally equipped with connectivity technology and wireless power up features to provide a helping hand to the patient.
By the look of it, if this combo is a success, it means that diabetics will no longer have to go through the painful process of prinking their fingers to test their sugar levels. The monitoring services will become better and this combo will help to reduce the various other complications that diabetics face due to the disease.
That is not all
Not just diabetics stand to gain from this combo. Patients who have glaucoma also stand a chance to protect their vision. The success of this new combo will provide a way to help fight the two major reasons why many people lose their vision. Today the number of patients diagnosed with Glaucoma and Diabetic retinopathy is increasing.
The reason why diabetics lose their vision is due to the high sugar levels. This damages the retina by wreaking the tiny blood vessels inside it. On the other hand, Glaucoma is a condition, which damages the optic never of the eye. Presently, the only way Glaucoma patients can deal with their situation is by using eye drops. But this does not help to stop it from progressing.
Scientists hope that with this new combo, they can find a solution to provide better release to patients who are diagnosed with these two eye conditions. Along with that, the experts may also find a solution to help take care of other eye conditions and diseases using this powerful combination.
