Could Google provide the answers for medical questions?

Need your glucose levels to be monitored? It might be as simple as placing a contact in your eye or wearing a pair of glasses. At least that’s what the techies are betting. Bloomberg reported that at least four Google employees met with regulators from the Federal Drug Administration (FDA). Some of the employees supposed to have been part of the meeting have done research on biosensors. The meeting was between Google staff and FDA employees who regulate eye devices and diagnostics for heart conditions.

A contact lens packed with sensors could someday be used to measure pulse or temperature or do blood analysis. But rather than provide the snapshot that those tests and procedures do today, a Google interface could theoretically provide a continuous analysis of the same samples. Those samples would be derived not from blood or other samples but from tears.

Here’s the Bloomberg report.
