In research described in the journal Nature Communications, the UNIST researchers used graphene-nanowire hybrid films to serve as conducting, transparent, and stretchable electrodes.  Both the graphene and the silver nanowires contribute indispensible properties.

This contact lens should be able to pick up indictors for intraocular pressure, diabetes mellitus, and other health conditions, according to the researchers.
Add some wireless communications and we can have Internet of diagnostivacal contact lenses in the future.
