Daysoft Limited, the online contact lens company, has been granted a US patent for its contact lens manufacturing method.

Approved for patent on January 1, the novel method is ‘a significantly more efficient manufacturing process and enables one mould half to be readily utilised as a blister cup for contact lens packaging,’ said Daysoft.

Ron Hamilton, executive chairman and Daysoft founder said: ‘This new process has taken several years of research and development by the Daysoft Engineering Team. We were all especially delighted to enter 2019 with this further, and extremely important, endorsement of our work.’

Hamilton said Daysoft has now sold more CLs directly to customers than any other business, with over 500 million sold so far.
