In July 2013, Meditrek in Yokohama released the Meruru, which enables soft contact lenses to be inserted and removed without touching the fingers.
"Using soft contact lenses requires practice, and even after practicing, quite a lot of people find it difficult to insert and remove soft contact lenses. Some people fail at practicing, and stop using contact lenses, because they think it's too difficult. If there was a way to handle contact lenses easily, without hurting the eyes, it would be a great help to such people."
