History of Evolution of the Contact Lens

By Julia Roger Subscribe to RSS | July 17th 2012 | Views:

The dimensions of a contact lens are less but that does not prevent it to help us in many ways. Creating such an item is an extremely difficult job, as the people manufacturing them deserve special credit. In the year 1887, the first concept of building the lens was conceived. The credit of the successful creation of the product and making it popular among the masses goes to F. E. Muller from Germany. He was also ably supported by two other men, the noted mathematician Rene Descartes and John Herschels. The former gave us the idea of placing the lens over the cornea.

More than half of the 19th century was spend in evolution of the contact lens and this paved the way for the creation of the modern lens. At this, many people who became enthusiastic about this whole idea of the lens and came up with their own ideas. The public were able to realize about the advantages of them and were quite happy with the developments. Eugen Fick at this time came to the forefront and did a lot to develop the lens. August Miller tried to go one-step ahead of Fick with his concept of the lens.

With the gradual progress of time, more and more developments came and went which finally made the way for scleral plastic. This made the people think again about ways of manufacturing contact lens superior than before. Joseph Dallos was another person of this era who did a lot for the development of the lens. Slowly and steadily came a time when the lens was given a touch of sophistication. George Butterfield was one such scientist who took the corneal lens to a new height altogether. The present varieties are made from silicone hydro gel but scientists have dedicated themselves to manufacture even better lens. These days’ lenses are available in different colors and are used for more than one purpose.
