  Adolf Eugen Fick - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Adolf Eugen Fick (born 3 September, 1829, in Kassel, Germany; died 21 August, 1901, in Blankenberghe, Flandern) was a German physiologist usually credited with the invention of contact lenses.
In 1855 he introduced Fick's law of diffusion, which governs the diffusion of a gas across a fluid membrane.
Fick managed to double-publish his law of diffusion, as it applied equally to physiology and physics.

Adolf Eugen Fick (1829-1901) was a German (German: A person of German nationality) physiologist (physiologist: A biologist specializing in physiology) and inventor (inventor: Someone who is the first to think of or make something).
He is best known for his 1887 invention of the contact lens (contact lens: A thin curved glass or plastic lens designed to fit over the cornea in order to correct vision or to deliver medication).
In 1870 he was the first to devise a technique for measuring cardiac output (cardiac output: The amount of blood pumped out by the ventricles in a given period of time), called the Fick Principle (Fick Principle: cardiac output is the volume of blood being pumped by the heart in a minute....

Adolf Eugen Fick (1829-1901), a physiologist at the University of Zurich, and Johannes Wislicenus (1835-1903), professor of chemistry at Zurich, questioned whether the oxidation of protein or of carbohydrates and fats supplied energy for muscular work.
Thus, the experiments by Smith, Fick and Wislicenus, Frankland, and Traube squashed Liebig's claim that protein served as the primary source of muscular power.

In September 1887 Adolf Eugen Fick, an ophthalmologist and Privatdozent in Zurich, submitted a very original paper entitled "Eine Contactbrille" (A contact spectacle) to the Archiv für Augenheilkunde.
Fick had difficulties in getting the lenses made, since at the time no optician wanted to make them for him.
Fick worked in private ophthalmological practice, and was "Privatdozent" (Reader) of Ophthalmology and Physiology at the University of Zurich from 1887 to 1914.

On the basis of subsequent studies, Rudolf A. Fick (1886-1939) concluded that the theory of "normalstellung" was not entirely valid, as the recumbent position of a cadaver could not be transferred to the vertical stance.
The degree of lumbar lordosis is much less when the body is recumbent than when vertical; in the latter position the center of gravity shifts forward considerably more than Braune and Fischer assumed.
Fick contended that no one posture is common for people of all races and cultures.

Adolf Eugen Fick (1829 - 1901) made important contributions to our knowledge of the mechanics of muscular movement and energetics and introduced the terms isometric and isotonic.
The study of developmental mechanics was introduced by Wilhelm Roux (1850 - 1924), who stated that muscular hypertrophy develops only after a muscle is forced to work intensively, a point of view that was later demonstrated experimentally by Werner W. Siebert.

As for contact lenses, some believe that the sketches made by Leonardo da Vinci about 1508 were intended to indicate contact lenses, and contact lenses were suggested and sketched by René Descartes in 1636.
The first contact lenses to have been worn were invented by the physiologist Adolf Fick in 1887, and the plastic contact lens was originated by Kevin Tuohy in 1948.

According to Contact Lens Spectrum's annual report about 125 million people use contact lenses worldwide.
Though the concept of contact lenses was described by Leonardo da Vinci as far back as 1508, the first contact lenses were not used until 1888 when the German physiologist Adolf Eugen Fick reported using contact lenses to correct optical defects.
He used the lenses made from heavy brown glass initially on rabbits, then on himself, and lastly on a small group of volunteers.
