Thomas Young described a neutralizing surface for the cornea that was the forerunner of contact lenses.
Sir John Herschel, the English astronomer and physicist, wrote and circulated an opinion that corneal contact lenses were, in fact, optically feasible. Herschel was also the first to suggest that an actual mould of the cornea might be taken.
These ideas though, lay dormant for approximately sixty years. His suggestions were theoretically sound but very problematic due to practical applications that were too difficult to overcome. One of the barriers was the need to make a mould of the sensitive corneal tissue. The cornea is totally avascular, with thousands of nerves, making a very sensitive tissue. With the introduction of anesthesia in 1884, contact lens technology advanced because moulding was made possible.
In the early 1880's, glass contact lenses that fit the anterior of the eye, called scleral lenses, were invented by Adolf Fic, Eugene Cult and August Mueller, independently. Dr. Fic was a physician in Zurich, Switzerland, who wrote a treatise entitled A Contact Spectacle, in which he described the first contact lens with a refractive power, to protect the eye and later for visual improvement. This first lens was made by F. A. Mueller in 1887, a manufacturer of artificial eyes.
Fic also recognized a method for correction of different types of irregular astigmatism other than spectacle lenses, which did not adequately correct the refractive power of irregular corneas. This device to neutralize the refractive power of the cornea, consisted of placing a small glass bowl directly on the eye, much like Leonardo had done 300 years prior. Later, Fic prepared a set of trial glass lenses. Fic selected the diagnostic lens that was most suitable for each of his experimental subjects. These original contact lenses were made of very thin glass.
