HARTFORD --  A team of scientists at Oregon State is developing a contact lens that will essentially track your sugar intake.

The lenses are embedded with transparent sensors that monitor glucose levels for people with diabetes. The contacts can even detect early signs of cancer. The contacts are still in the early stages of development and researchers hope to finish up testing in the next year.
