In 2022, mark’ennovy celebrates its 25th anniversary. In 1997, Georges Sarrouf founded the company in Madrid, specialising in bespoke, conventional contact lenses and, 25 years later, is still at the helm as CEO.

The company has become a market leader for the manufacture of individually crafted contact lenses. Continuous innovation and advancement define our corporate culture. This established mark’ennovy as a precision contact lens brand for astigmatism and presbyopia.

mark’ennovy specialises in soft contact lenses for all types of presbyopic eyes and levels of astigmatism

We have always striven to understand our customers’ needs and deliver a complete package of contact lenses, precision-based approach to fitting contact lenses and service to help them achieve a more personalised level of care for their patients.

Still in the Limelight

Over the years, mark’ennovy has developed four different materials that provide you with the perfect toolkit to fit the wearer’s ocular surface, and three unique designs for presbyopia depending on the pupil size of the patient.

  • Saphir Rx  is a silicone hydrogel lens, featuring a comfortable high-water content, low dehydration material and a highly lubricious surface. Its optic design is a great choice for big pupil sizes.
  • Gentle 59 is a bio-inspired hydrogel lens that imitates the natural properties of the cornea. It combines high surface lubricity, low dehydration and optimal modulus. The optic design is a match for medium-sized pupils.
  • Gentle 80 is a bio-inspired hydrogel lens that imitates the natural properties of the cornea. Its material combines high water content, low dehydration, and oxygen transmissibility that reaches silicone hydrogel levels (Dk = 60). Its optic design is a great choice for small pupils.
  • Blu:gen is a silicone hydrogel lens, combining a Class 1 UV Filter with selective Blue Light Blocking. The optic design is a match for big pupil sizes.

Because of our precision technology, all our monthly lathed contact lenses have multifocal and multifocal toric versions. Moreover, all these contact lenses are available in both centre-distance (CD) and centre-near (CN) geometries. In short, we can maximise the fitting to the visual needs of the contact lens wearer.

New Contact Lens in Town

mark’ennovy and the Brien Holden Vision Institute, world-renowned non-profit organisation for innovative vision care solutions, have teamed up to develop EDOF.

EDOF is an individually crafted monthly contact lens specifically designed for Presbyopia. It is powered by the BHVI’s patented Extended Depth of Focus technology. Higher order aberrations are optimized taking into consideration different pupil sizes, decentrations and aberrations. This supports clear vision at all distances minimising unwelcomed visual disturbances like ghosting and haloes.

Also, its silicone hydrogel material combines high water content, low coefficient of friction and low elastic modulus to improve comfort throughout the day, whilst its wide range of parameters ensure a precise fit.
