The world’s first intelligent contact lens has entered the clinical trial stage, which can help people with vision defects in the future

According to foreign media reports, the University of Ghent in Belgium and IMEC, the international research and Innovation Center for nanotechnology and digital technology, are jointly conducting clinical trials on smart contact lenses. Its original purpose is to help people with vision defects or assist in the treatment of eye diseases, and to change people’s vision by using liquid crystal displays. < / P > < p > according to relevant sources, this smart contact lens is like a “sandwich”, which is composed of liquid crystal “display”, microcontroller ASIC or ASIC, light sensor, accelerometer and gyroscope, and very thin bubble solid-state lithium-ion battery of ordinary hard or soft contact lens. < / P > < p > smart contact lenses actually block light by using a liquid crystal “screen.”. When the light is too bright, the light sensor will notice, and then inform the “screen” to turn black, so as to help these patients reduce the amount of light into the eyes and block some light. < / P > < p > of course, photophobia is only one of the visual obstacles to be solved by smart contact lenses at Ghent University. According to relevant experts, this high sensitivity to light can lead to visual problems, but reducing light appropriately is good for those suffering from nervous system problems such as chronic migraine and traumatic brain injury. < / P > < p > scientists have many wonderful ideas about the function of this smart contact lens, such as a big arrow superimposed on the user’s field of vision when driving or walking, indicating that the user should turn left or right. Or, when there is an unsafe situation in the current party, use a large parking sign, etc. < / P > < p > in addition, scientists plan to implant more sensors into the smart contact lens, so as to realize the function of providing various data of users’ health, such as blood pressure. At present, this smart contact lens is still in clinical trials. Scientists guarantee that although all electronic components are safely sandwiched between the contact lens layers, it will not increase the size of the contact lens, so it will not burden our eyes too much.
