For the first time, scientists have developed contact lenses that can detect cancers through tears.

It's the dreaded letter C. Shivers run down my spine just thinking about it. This is due to the fact that it is not only tough to treat but also invasive to diagnose. Biopsies sometimes necessitate extensive wounds that create scars. Cancer-detecting contact lenses that are non-invasive That's why it was so amazing to learn that a group of researchers was working on non-invasive contact lenses that may detect and possibly even cure cancer. Yangzhi Zhu, a biomedical engineer at the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation, a non-profit research organization in California, is the study's lead author. According to Inverse, the new invention is "quite interesting compared to the other current techniques in this space." Before you get too enthusiastic about the technology's advancem...
