Theme Issue: History of Soft Contact Lenses

We welcome submissions to Hindsight on topics relating to the history of soft contact lenses.  Examples of such topics could include evolution of lens designs and fitting methods, development of soft lens polymers, how the development of soft contact lenses affected the practice of optometry, how soft lens fitting advanced knowledge of corneal physiology and ocular microbiology, and development of optical and fitting strategies for management of presbyopia and astigmatism with soft contact lenses.
