Want to know breif history about Contact Lenses?

In 1976, the Medical Devices Act declared that soft contact lenses were now classified as a medical device and no longer a drug.  Later, in 1978, and after much research, the first rigid gas permeable lens materials made out of cellulose acetate butyrate were FDA approved.  Because of its oxygen transmissibility, many more patients were once again being fitted with hard, (stable) oxygen transmissible gas permeable lenses.  They produced better visual acuity than soft contact lenses because they did not flex with blinking.   

As years passed, soft lens designs improved.  The general public was mostly fit in soft contact lenses that were more oxygen transmissible and able to be worn on a daily, as well as an extended wear basis.  The need for stable or rigid contact lenses declined, but over the years maintained twenty-five percent market share.  Soft contact lenses have not been able to satisfy patients with various diseases and anatomical distortions of the cornea.  These patients were best served by a well fit, specially designed, gas permeable stable lens for visual and corneal rehabilitation. Improvement in materials gave the patients better comfort.  However, designs with gas permeable lens materials for some corneal diseases were limited and produced unpredictable results.  More knowledge and improved technology was needed. 

In 1977, out of much frustration, Siviglia began research on new contact lens designs.  With the advent of manual corneal topography and with use of specialized instruments,  it was possible to obtain geometries from different quadrants of the patient's cornea.   Corneal topography,  gave evidence of various elevation levels and changes in the corneal surface.  That led him to design several lenses, for keratoconus and corneal abnormalities, such as the Ni-Cone design.  This design is a multiple back surface vaulting system based on Leonardo da Vinci's original concept.  Remembering the part Leonardo overlooked when he put the man's face in the bowl of water, the water pushed back against the cornea.  This is called fluid compression.  With knowledge that the cornea's epithelium regenerates itself, it is possible to take advantage of the re-distribution of cells through the science of fluid compression when fitting a specially designed lens that applies pressure to specific areas of the cornea.  .
