Menicon has launched Miru One Month disposable silicone hydrogel lenses and MeniCare Soft, a multi-purpose solution for soft lenses. According to Menicon, Miru One Month disposable silicone hydrogel lenses are comfortable to wear and safe.
When compared with five commercially available silicone hydrogel lenses, Miru One Month asmofilcon A material demonstrated the lowest level of bacterial adhesion to the lens surface.1 Additionally, a greater resistance to lipid deposition was likely to result in lower levels of discomfort, visual disturbances, inflammation of the ocular surface and lens spoilation in comparison to other silicone hydrogel contact lenses examined.2
Menicon has stated that Miru one month silicone hydrogel contacts lenses demonstrated one of the highest levels of oxygen transmissibility (161 Dk/t) when compared to other commercially available lenses, well above recommendations for safe daily and even extended lens wear.2 The company said the Miru One Month’s material and lens design combination provided a constant higher level of averaged oxygenation across the entire corneal surface. Miru One Month lenses are available in two base curves (8.30 and 8.60) and powers from +6.00d to -13.00d.
