Today smart wearable market consists of mostly smart bands, smartwatches, and wireless earbuds. But soon there may time come when smart contact lens also is on the list of smart wearable devices. If market watchers are to be believed, we may soon see the smart contact lens market explode.

It won't be surprising to see Google and Samsung at the forefront of the smart lens industry. Both companies have been already laying the groundwork for smart contact lenses. Samsung is one of the main players following Sony, Google, and Sensimed AG.

This is not the first time when we’ve heard about Samsung's potential in involvement with smart contact lenses. Back in 2016, the company applied for a patent on smart contact lenses. Samsung has been working on researching optic-related smart technologies for more than half-decade now. There is no official statement by the company on smart contact lenses but we can hope this technology is right in the middle of it when it happens.

Likewise, Sony, Sensimed AG, and Google are also working on the smart contact lens. Google has a dedicated research organization for smart contact lenses and other things. However, like any other new technology, this is also expected to take some time to become commercialized and then a few years to refine it for genuine use cases.
