Corporate Info

Message form the CEO

Since developing the first rigid contact lens in Japan, Menicon has spearheaded the contact lens industry. We will continue to develop safe, high-quality products, and apply the technology developed through contact lenses to pioneer new businesses in fields other than eye care. As a creative specialist company, we will continue to provide products and services needed by society.

To guide us in our new stage of development as a global corporation, we have formulated a new philosophy: “To be a global enterprise that is friendly to people, animals, and the environment.'' We have incorporated ecology as a key element of our R&D as part of our efforts to repay the entire Earth with the technology and wisdom we possess.

The people of the Menicon Group globally are working for your "Infinite Vision."

As an employee at the Tamamizuya optical shop in Nagoya, Kyoichi Tanaka first heard about contact lenses in 1950 from the wife of a U.S. army officer. From this encounter, he conducted his own research and, in 1951, developed the first corneal contact lens in Japan. Although he no longer directs the corporation on a day-to-day basis, employees are still able to benefit from and enjoy his advice and guidance.

From the time we open our eyes in the morning until we fall asleep at night.
We use our eyes to see the world.
We create, we learn, we find new friends.
We take vision for granted.
However, it enriches every day of our lives.
Here at Menicon, we contribute to daily living by providing superior visual correction: Working to bring each and every person the joy of sight.
Contributing to society by providing superior visual correction
Earning customer trust by anticipating and creating market needs.
Through our innovative practices, we achieve prosperity and satisfaction as a corporation that emphasizes respect for people.
