We are delighted to announce that IACLE has a new Bronze Sponsor ­– Menicon Co., Ltd. – a Japanese contact lens manufacturer that developed Japan’s first practical corneal contact lens. Menicon holds steadfast to safety values and strives to create comfortable and convenient contact lenses. Menicon is firmly progressing as a global enterprise represented in over 80 countries while providing the joy of sight to the world. 

Menicon offers a full range of products and services as a comprehensive vision care enterprise. Within the RGP and MTO lens portfolio, Menicon has a diverse range of products to satisfy various needs. In terms of disposable contact lenses, to provide better vision and experience to customers, Menicon developed SmartTouch technology which has been applied to all Miru 1day disposable contact lenses. Furthermore, as contact lens hygiene has always been regarded as a core priority within the business, Menicon also provides a complete lineup of lens care solutions to all RGP and soft lens users.  

Senior Executive Officer of Menicon Hideki Koga commented, ‘As a contact lens manufacturer, we are dedicated to delivering high-quality contact lens and care products which are designed with the wearer and hygiene in mind.

Partnering with IACLE allows us to support contact lens education, research, and best practice evidence-based approaches for those teaching and aspiring the next generation of eye care professionals.’

IACLE President Professor Philip Morgan welcomes our new sponsor, ‘We are thrilled that Menicon has joined IACLE as a sponsor – this is truly great news for our membership. IACLE sponsors are an integral part of the Association. Certainly, funding from our sponsors is critical for our work, but we very much appreciate their insights into current market trends and other areas of expertise. On behalf of the IACLE leadership, I look forward to working with our colleagues at Menicon and all our sponsors to execute IACLE’s mission of developing outstanding contact lens educators.’
