Menicon launches its first daily disposable toric contact lens in the UK

Menicon Ltd has unveiled a toric version of its award-nominated Miru 1day Flat Pack contact lens – its first daily disposable toric lens for the UK market. This popular lens, with its combination of all-day comfort, hygienic handling and convenience, can now be offered to more of your customers.

Unlike many toric lenses which have to be applied in a specific way to ensure clear vision, the Miru 1day Flat Pack Toric lens will rotate to the correct axis to give stable, clear vision all day long.

The lens was developed to give wearers with astigmatism further choice, not only in terms of the lens itself but also because it will appeal to wearers who wish to reduce their use of plastic in everyday life.

A Green Choice
The innovative SmartTouchTM packaging - inspired by the qualities of a sticking plaster – is the slimmest in the word at just 1mm thick. It uses significantly less raw materials and is recyclable, resulting in 80% less waste compared to conventional packaging. In addition, the storage case is made from the molds that produce the lenses inside the pack, demonstrating the circular use of raw materials.

A Hygienic Choice
Hygiene is also a key selling point. The lens design means the inner surface remains hygienic during application because the customer only touches the outer surface of the lens.

A Handy Choice
The slim pack can simply be slipped inside a purse or mobile phone case – perfect when a customer is out and about.
