New eye monitoring system developed to monitor islet transplantation
A collaboration between Professor Per-Olof Berggren from the group Signal Transduction and researchers in the Republic of Korea has led to the development of a soft, smart contact lens to monitor the intraocular pressure and applied it for noninvasive monitoring in association with the intraocular islet transplantation in diabetes.
Their findings was recently published in the journal Nano Letters "Intraocular Pressure Monitoring Following Islet Transplantation to the Anterior Chamber of the Eye".
