With potential benefits to the 71 million contact lens users worldwide, contact lenses are being reinvented in the form of smart wearable electronics. In this issue of ACS Nano, Lee et al. report on the fascinating functions of a graphene-based smart contact lens that is able to protect eyes from electromagnetic waves and dehydration. Graphene and two-dimensional materials can be exploited in many opportunities in the development of smart contact lenses. Here, we briefly review and describe prospects for the future of smart contact lenses that incorporate graphene in their platforms.
