Want to know breif history about Contact Lenses?

Contact Lens for Treatment of Medical or Ocular Disordersb>

With the advent of hard and soft lens materials and some idea of how to fit the lens, medicine could move forward with the application of treating eye problems.
In the early 1960's, Nick Siviglia, Ph.D., Sc.D., a contact lens designer, fitter and inventor, having previously been employed by Dr. Morrison, created and manufactured custom aphakic contact lenses for individuals who had cataracts removed from one eye.  Before this  modality was available, these patients became monocular, unable to see clearly with both eyes.  
At a later date, Bausch and Lomb made popular the spun-casted soft lenses.  Spun- casting produced a lens with very consistent, reproducible lens surfaces.  Bausch and Lomb also introduced mass production.  This made it possible for Siviglia and other practitioners to fit soft bandage lenses for therapeutic reasons, such as corneal erosion or other corneal traumas, in addition to fitting near and far sighted patients.   
In 1968, The Food and Drug Administration classified soft lenses as a drug.  Between 1954 and 1970,  as soft contact lenses were improving and developing in design and materials,  polymethylmethacrylate hard contact lenses were depreciating in their use.  Practitioners came to discover that many patients who wore either PMMA hard or soft contact lenses developed central corneal edema.  This affected the patient's visual acuity and their ability to tolerate these lenses.  There was tremendous need for improved materials with more oxygen transmission for both hard and soft lenses. 
In 1970, silicone and methacrylate combinations produced rigid gas permeable materials.  Through time and research experience we found the need to improve designs and fitting techniques as well.  Experts the world over worked feverishly to accomplish that goal. 


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.
