Supporting Your Vision with Japanese Quality

High-Performance and Eco-Friendly Facility

All the manufacturing processes of SEED Pure Series are strictly managed at SEED Kounosu laboratory. Great care is taken in producing each pair of SEED contact lens at the manufacturing plant in order to ensure the utmost safety of human eyes. SEED takes its environmental responsibility seriously and ensures its facilities are eco-friendly.

Energy Efficiency Utilization

SEED uses one of the nation's largest steam accumulators to supply steam, which is essential for the autoclave sterilization of contact lenses, in a stable and economical way. In addition, we have also set up solar panel generation system on the rooftop of the buildings to make use of renewable energy.

The introduction of FEMS energy management system in our manufacturing plant also allows us to monitor and manage the effective use of electricity.

Large Reduction of Water Consumption

Large amounts of pure water are used during the manufacturing process of soft contact lenses. To utilise discharged water from the factory, we have built the water recycling system for large-scale water conservation.

In addition, we have created eco-friendly technologies and facilities, i.e. the recycling of the plastics emitted from the manufacturing processes, and we are currently working on the conservation of global environment through various company activities.

High Standard of Inspection Process and Quality Management System

To ensure the quality of the products, we are shipping only products that passed through our strict quality management system and thorough inspection.

Furthermore, using the two-dimensional code and ID tag, we also implemented an integrated management system for production and distribution. This enables all lenses to be traced.
