No need for needles: A better way for diabetics to check their sugar

Currently the method for measuring blood sugar (glucose) levels in people with diabetes, is to draw blood by pricking a finger. With 15 million diabetics in the US testing glucose levels each day, there must be a better way – and there is. The Glucose Eye Scanner, developed at UT is a non-invasive and easy-to-use scanner that looks at the liquid between the lens and cornea to give an instant read-out. Roquel Cunningham talks to the developer of the scanner, and experts from UT's College of Business Administration to explain the path from lab to store shelf.
