ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses are made here in Limerick.
Of all the countries outside of the USA, Ireland is unique in that it has its own manufacturing facility here - Vistakon.
Our Limerick plant manufactures many of the ACUVUE® contact lens range for Ireland and the UK as well as far reaching markets across the globe.
Open and operational since 1996, manufacturing at Vistakon goes on around the clock and produces over seven billion lenses annually.
Local manufacturer: global exporter
The plant uses local suppliers, employs local people and actively and vigorously supports the local community.

Quality products exported around the world
All products are manufactured to rigorous parameter specifications and the production process is fully automated; from start to finish our lenses are untouched by human hand.
