While the first contact lens dates back more than 500 years, modern lenses came into existence in the 1950s. Since then, contact lenses have seen dramatic improvements in design and are now worn by nearly 44 million Americans. Manufacturers continue to research and develop innovative technologies aimed at tackling challenging vision conditions and improving the quality of life for millions of contact lens patients.
