Acuvue Oasys 1-Day: New Product Launch, Exclusive Interviews: Manufacturing & QC [#R50-3]

You may not think a lot about where contact lenses come from, but ponder this: a daily disposable needs 30x the number of lenses that a monthly does.

How does one scale up to consistently produce a new product like this? In a wide parameter range, no less? (Acuvue Oasys 1-Day will cover +8 to -12 at launch, and nearly 20,000 fit sets will be produced within the first several months, so all fitters that want to will have a crack at it.)

I got a tour of the production facility and was able to interview Tim Ryan, JJVC’s Plant Manager, and Mike Alleva, World Wide VP of Operations to talk about this new production lines & how they have been able to produce the lens in the quantities that will be needed right out of the chute.
