Constant finger pricks to check blood sugar or glucose are a dreaded ritual for millions of diabetics. Debra Poepping does it four times a day. So she carries a bag of equipment everywhere she goes.

("YOU'RE ALWAYS MONITORING YOUR DIET BASED ON WHAT YOUR BLOOD SUGAR IS,

WHAT YOUR BLOOD READINGS ARE. AND IT'S UNCOMFORTABLE.")
A contact lens like this may bring relief. University of Pittsburgh researchers are working on a lens that can detect blood glucose levels in human tears. Diabetes specialist Dr. Paul Mystkowski says it's feasible.

("YOU DO HAVE GLUCOSE IN YOUR TEARS AND THEY DO SEEM TO CORRELATE PRETTY

WELL WITH YOUR BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS.")
Here's how the contacts are supposed to work. Researchers plan to embed a sensor at the edge of the lens that displays color depending on blood glucose levels.
If the glucose level is dangerously high, the contact's sensor will turn red. Dangerously low and the color violet will show up. Normal blood sugar would show up as green. All the patient has to do is look into a compact mirror equipped with a color chart.
Looking into a mirror to monitor diabetes is still YEARS away, but Debra loves the idea.

("IT WOULD BE SO FABULOUS FOR SO MANY PEOPLE.")
