Contact Lens Contains Embedded LCD

Who hasn’t dreamed of having heads-up display screens directly embedded into their eyes? I guess years of playing Cyberpunk 2020 and reading science-fiction novels have made this a fixture in most settings. While it won’t make readable contact lens displays feasible any time soon, it looks like scientists have actually been able to make contact lenses with embedded LCDs.

Lost Contact Lens

Yesterday, I took a quick shower after a run and I lost a contact lens. Thinking that it had flushed down the drain, I changed lenses. I spent most of the night with an irritated eye. It didn’t get any better when I went to bed.

The next day, when I took a shower, I felt something in my eye. I got out of the shower and checked. I found the lost contact lens. It had folded itself up into my eye and disappeared from view.
