A Middlebury native is looking to help Google come up with some pretty innovative solutions for diabetes.

Nathan Pletcher works as a hardware engineer for the media giant, and he's currently working on a device to measure glucose levels through tears in the eyes.

Pletcher is a 1996 Northridge High School graduate who went on to earn his physics degree from Goshen
College.

Our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth interviewed him about his latest project.

Pletcher hopes the miniature technology will lead to a smart contact lens for diabetics, eliminating the need for finger pricking

Development is still in the early stages, but Google is already testing a prototype.
