I can't wear contacts, either, so it's not something I would seriously look at. Besides, the 10 year rule of new meds would also apply to this, IMO

Could they not put the sensor at the end of a "strip" that one would touch to the eye to soak up tears. And a meter to read the strip. No transmitting involved.

I agree. I actually did wear contacts up until I had my son. After I was pregnant, I found them really painful to wear. My eye doctor had me try a few different kinds even though I had been wearing them for about 20 years prior to this. I then saw a different eye doctor in the same practice, and he said that sometimes, a woman's eyes change through pregnancy and some women just can't wear contacts after giving birth. (There's a medical name for it, can't remember what it is.)

I am definitely one of them. Feels like sandpaper in my eyes.

I have trouble with contacts as well after going through a hormonal treatment. I would still be willing to give it a shot after they've tested it out on someone else for about 20 years.

In the future we'll all have all our bodyparts available from google. Instead of humans we'll be known as hoogles, and the only "cost" will be targeted advertising flashing across our backs and foreheads.

Someone would stab their eye out, for sure. No matter how safe they tried to make it, someone would try to attach it to the end of a fork or something, claiming that their fingers were disabled. Then before you know it some corporation in China would steal the plans and start making it out of lead or broken shards of glass, or whatever else they can find cheap.

That's why I am fairly certain we'll never really see this google eye meter thing come to life as the potential for abuse and fear of litigation will stifle it.

If I get a speck of dust in my eye it feels like an elephant! Don't think I'd be able to wear it even if it's proven foolproof.

So are glucose levels in tears "real time" - more like finger sticks, or is it more like a CGM, measuring glucose in interstitial fluid? If it's the latter, you'd still need to do finger stick tests for things like bolus calcs. Further, so what if you have all this data? If you're still being given the typical bad advice about how to manage blood sugar all the datapoints in the world won't change the outcome.

What's the cost of these little devices? Insurance coverage? Another opportunity to grab cash from diabetics - great.
