Virus Detector Lens / Contact Lens

Virus Detector Lens
Virus Detector Lens

Contact lenses can cause serious eye diseases. However, many people don't know how to correctly keep the contact lenses. One can get eye infections as the result of an improper use of the contact lenses. In severe cases, the eye infection can lead to blindness.
Not only does one easily forget the expiration date of the lenses, but one also cannot visually identity any infections on the contact lenses.

Virus Detector Lens is a contact lens which notifies you of its usability. The color of the transparent smart lens turns red when it is infected with virus, letting you know it is time to throw it away.
