November 3, 2021, North Billerica, MA - Menicon America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Menicon Co. Ltd., has announced the launch of Miru 1day UpSide, a silicone hydrogel daily disposable lens that utilizes SmartTouch™ technology in its packaging.
Miru 1day UpSide incorporates both MeniSilk™ Air and NanoGloss™ Pro technologies to create an optimal balance of material and surface properties. The combination of these two technologies delivers a lens optimized for eye health - providing high oxygen, an ultra-low modulus and a smooth, low friction surface.
The SmartTouch™ package, when opened, always presents the lens convex side up, resting on a small bump which provides ease of handling and reduces the patients risk of inner lens contamination.
“Menicon continues its commitment to deliver safety, convenience and value through creativity and innovation” says, Menicon America’s president, Scott Orphanos. “Miru 1day UpSide features smart touch technology in our first high performance silicone hydrogel daily disposable contact lens, balanced for superior oxygen transmission and optimized comfort. We are proud to present this evolutionary leap in daily disposable contact lenses. “
Miru 1day UpSide is currently available in sphere with plans to add a multifocal in the first half of 2022.
