Augmented Reality Contact Lenses
Contact Lenses can be used to directly portray AR to users. At least that is the goal. This technology is widely believed to be possible and is widely explored by many leading companies in the industry such as Google and Apple.

However, there are many limitations though with regards to the contact lenses due to their delicacy and sensitivity level of the user’s eye.
