Menicon Z ® is a hyper-oxygen permeable gas permeable lens that offers comfort, wettability, long term eye health and clear crisp vision even if you have astigmatism.
Menicon Z ® offers the highest level of oxygen permeability in a gas permeable lens material available today. Though it is most often worn on a Daily Wear (DW) basis, Menicon Z ® is approved for extended wear up to 7 days, and up to 30 days of continuous wear.
Years of research and development balanced two key factors: strength of the material and high oxygen permeability.
Menicon ® invented a new polymer with novel components syloxanylstyrene, fluoromethacrylate and benzotriazol UV absorber which makes it stronger, allowing the lens to be made thinner than a typical gas permeable lens allowing for more comfort.
Menicon Z ® not only offers extraordinary levels of oxygen permeability but also higher resistance to breakage and scratches. Compared to other high oxygen permeable materials, Menicon Z ® offers excellent deposit resistance. It can be manufactured in thin designs while maintaining superior stability and wettability. Menicon Z ® wearing patients enjoy exceptional vision and comfort.
Menicon Z ® delivers a high standard of safety and convenience, and can be applied on a wide range of lens designs and used on even the most difficult and challenging corneas. This breakthrough lens material is approved for spherical, aspheric, custom toric and multifocal designs, and specialty lens designs such as Rose K™ and Paragon CRT®.
Menicon Z ® is available for scleral lenses up to 21mm in diameter.
