Menicon is a contact lens manufacturer that offers a variety of gas permeable and soft contact lenses to assist you in seeing the world without the need for glasses. Whether you need daily, weekly or monthly disposable contacts or something to correct your presbyopia or astigmatism, Menicon has a contact lens that will work for you.
One of those lenses is the 1day Miru. Taking its name from the Japanese verb that means "to see," Miru provides comfortable all-day wear that is easily discarded when you are done using the lens at the end of the day. Miru is made of poly(HEMA-GMA), a material that bonds with water and resists drying to keep your eyes moist and seeing clearly all day. It features a Centraform edge that reduces friction between your eyelid and the edge of the lens when you blink, keeping your lens always in focus.
One of the most interesting things about the Miru 1day daily disposable contact lens isn't the contact lens--it is the packaging. The contact lens comes in a unique 1mm packaging that sits flat, opens easily and presents the lens with the outer surface facing up, allowing a quick and easy transfer from the package to your finger to your eye without getting dirt and oil on the lens.
This packaging features significantly less material than other brands, reducing the amount of waste that you produce from wearing daily disposable contact lenses. When you are throwing away two packages per day, it is a significant amount of material saved over the course of a year. In addition, the secondary boxes that house the primary contact lens packaging are made from recycled lens mould plastic. This focus on remaining environmentally friendly gives Menicon an edge over other manufacturers.
While not a big name on the contact lens circuit, Menicon is an excellent choice if you need a daily, weekly or monthly disposable contact that provides moisture and reliability when you need it most--every single day. Work with your eye doctor to determine if one of Menicon's lenses is right for you.
