Soft contact lenses eyed as new solutions to monitor ocular diseases

Davidson School of Chemical Engineering Professor Bryan Boudouris is part of a team of researchers from Purdue University that worked with biomedical, mechanical and chemical engineers, along with clinicians, to develop the novel technology. The team enabled commercial soft contact lenses to be a bioinstrumentation tool for unobtrusive monitoring of clinically important information associated with underlying ocular health conditions. Their work is published in Nature Communications. The Purdue Research Foundation Office of Technology Commercialization helped secure a patent for the technology, and it is available for licensing.
