For this purpose, the company’s R&D departments have focused for decades on developing hyper-oxygen transmissible contact-lens materials, as it is well known that this is one of the most important features for safe contact-lens wear. In 1979, the founder of Menicon, Mr. Kyoichi Tanaka, patented the first silicone hydrogel (SiH) material in the world for use in the manufacture of contact lenses.1In 2001, Menicon successfully launched the Menicon Z lens, which has the highest oxygen permeability of all gas-permeable lenses available worldwide and is the only one approved by the FDA for up to 30 days of continuous wear.
