Want to know breif history about Contact Lenses? The Renaissance:

The renaissance in the contact lens field was about to explode.  The year was 1960. Celebrities, athletes, business executives, and political figures, all wanted these new contact lenses.  Eventually these people, along with students and office workers formed the bulk of the contact lens consumers and popularized contact lenses.  Although there were thousands and thousands of converts to contact lenses they really did not threaten to make spectacle lenses a historical footnote. 
Remembering that the contact lens renaissance began  in 1948, the world was just learning about these new and different contact lens designs.  In 1950, George Butterfield  introduced the concept of fitting the peripheral cornea. 
The first corneal lenses to have widespread success were designed in  the 1950's by Frank Dickenson, Wilhelm Sohnjes and John Neil.  These lenses had a thickness of about 0.20 millimeters.  Thinner lenses of about 0.10 millimeters were introduced in the early 1960's.  These had rounded edges and a much smaller size that permitted greater metabolic transition of fluids. 
Dr. Robert Morrison, of Harrisburg, PA, who Dr. Siviglia had the privilege of working with in the 1960's, introduced a small, thin MINNA lens.  These lenses were better tolerated.  No thought had ever been given to the fact that perhaps the contact lenses were uncomfortable and cumbersome after some time of wear because of the insufficiency of oxygen between the contact lens and the cornea.  PMMA material, which is still in use and mostly produced by GlassFlex Corporation in New Jersey, was not oxygen transmissible.  In the 1960's, Morrison postulated that after removal of these types of contact lenses, the cornea was definitely influenced in both a positive and negative way.  At times, there was inconsistency in the performance of the lens.  It produced very unpredictable results, both during and after wear.
