  Non-invasive glaucoma treatment
 
  A Purdue University affiliated startup is developing non-invasive, effective contact lenses and glasses to treat glaucoma and prevent blindness.

"All we do to the contact lens is add a single trace of gold. That trace of gold receives an electromagnetic field that we transmit from a specially equipped pair of glasses to convert the field into a current. The current is then delivered to a very specific part of the eye’s anatomy to achieve the desired therapy,” Irazoqui said. “Our device can electrically stimulate the muscles around Schlemm's canal, the structure where fluid leaves the eye, to decrease the impedance to fluid flow and, thus, decrease pressure. There’s no surgery, it’s not invasive, it’s just a contact lens that you wear with a pair of glasses and it takes about five minutes to work and has no known side effects.”
