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.
Smart Contact Lenses — Mojo Vision
The start-up Mojo Vision drew attention back in 2020 as they introduces the first smart contact lens. It can display data based on augmented reality. It consists of a tiny microLED display which is the size of a grain of sand to share critical information. It has smart sensors that are powered by solid-state batteries built into a scleral lens that is also capable of correcting your vision.
