Menicon offers UpSide to contact lenses

Menicon’s Miru family of lenses just got bigger with the exciting addition of Miru 1day UpSide, the first and only Silicone Hydrogel daily disposable with SmartTouch™ technology.  Miru 1day UpSide is Menicon’s first daily disposable silicone hydrogel lens to use its innovative Menisilk™ Air and NanoGloss™ Pro technologies, which balance material and surface properties. This combination of high oxygen for health along with the softness and comfort of an ultra-low modulus material are enough to set Miru 1day UpSide apart from other lenses, but it is the unique hygienic handling system developed by Menicon that looks set to make this lens the top choice for customers.

Menicon’s SmartTouch™ packaging ensures that every lens faces the right way up and can be removed and inserted without the patient needing to touch its inner surface, eliminating the risk of contamination and making insertion easier and quicker. The result is hassle-free handling, improved hygiene and a system that’s quick and simple, making active compliance easier and delivering a positive lens-wearing experience for patients. 

Kevin Mitchell, managing director of Menicon UK, said: “From the moment a Miru 1day UpSide lens is produced, until the wearer pinches it out of the Smart Touch packaging, the lens remains untouched by human hands.  This lens delivers in all the key areas – health, vision, hygiene, comfort and convenience.”

Miru 1day UpSide lenses are easy to insert, reducing time and stress for those with busy lifestyles. A range of videos available online can also help to support patients on their new Miru contact lens journey.  Available in Sphere and Multifocal, with Toric being added soon, there is an UpSide lens to suit patients’ needs.  The range of online prescription calculators for multifocal and toric lenses also helps to achieve first fit success.

Ordering Menicon’s range of disposable contact lenses is easy too with the new Online Ordering system where trial or stock lenses are available, along with the option for a specific delivery for a patient.  Simply visit using your Menicon Customer Number.
