Supporting your vision with Japanese Technology
It was 1951 when SEED started its research on contact lenses. Over a half century since then, we accumulated technologies and gained customer trust through development of contact lenses. Based on time-trusted expertise, we have also put a variety of eye-related products into the market. Currently, we operate in lens care products, spectacle frames and a number of diversified businesses centering around contact lens business. under our corporate philosophy of “Supporting Your Vision with Japanese Quality”. To continue to step up our support for your vision, we will keep planting “SEED”s in boundless new fields and reaping the fruit of our efforts.

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.
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 product, we are shipping only strictly selected products under strict quality management system and thorough inspection.
Furthermore, using two-dimensional code and ID tag, we are implementing integrated management of production and the distribution. It also enables all of the lenses to be traceable.
In addition, we have obtained the certification of ISO13485, which is the international standard of quality management systems for the medical devices. This has further strengthened our quality control system. Certified according to the IS013485 at Head Office (Quality Assurance Division, Clinical Affairs Department and Device Development Department) and Konousu Laboratory.
