Everything you need to know about Menicon Z ultra-permeable contact lenses

Which contact lenses? Why? For whom? In practice…
Discover the characteristics of Menicon Z contact lenses

HARD, SEMI-RIGID, FLEXIBLE…

The terms “hard”, “rigid” and “flexible” contact lenses are sometimes used in comparison to “soft” contact lenses.

In actual fact, contact lenses made out of Z material are neither hard nor rigid: they are ultra-permeable to oxygen, very tough, relatively flexible and very easy to handle.

OPT FOR THIS TYPE OF CONTACT LENS

Your eyes are important: wearing Z lenses, ultra-permeable to oxygen, means first and foremost choosing the safest solution for the health of your eyes.

These contact lenses allow the cornea to breathe through the material and enable tears to circulate freely. If you have sensitive eyes (dry eye syndrome), an inherited disposition to  allergies or if you have more difficulty wearing supple contact lenses than you used to, you can still continue to wear Z ultra-permeable contact lenses.

SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES

There is no age for starting to wear contact lenses: even babies can wear Menicon Z lenses.

Thanks to Z material, Menicon offers a range of varied geometries that are adaptable to different profiles and requirements.
Everyone can envisage wearing contact lenses - ask your optician or ophthalmologist for advice.

SUITABLE FOR ALL SIGHT DEFECTS

With Menicon Z contact lenses, you will benefit from unequalled quality of vision, the most stable over time, whether you are short-sighted, far-sighted and/or astigmatic.

These lenses naturally correct corneal astigmatism. Specific geometries are available for correcting other types of astigmatism and certain irregular shapes of cornea.

IDEAL FOR DRY EYES

Z ultra-permeable contact lenses do not dehydrate and allow your eyes to breathe: they are first-line treatment contact lenses if you have few tears or feel as though you have dry eyes in air conditioned rooms or in front of a screen.
