Message from the President
I would like to thank you for your continued patronage for SEED’s contact lenses, care products, and glass frames. I’m Masahiro Urakabe, the president and CEO.
Our corporate history goes back to 1951 when we started research activities on contact lenses for the first time in Japan. Since then, we properly address the needs of the times based on our know-hows cultivated so far.
Based on our belief that "we support people to "have a clearer vision,"" we have now a broad range of high functional and high value added lenses including those for astigmatism, bifocal lenses, circle lenses, as well as those for myopia and hyperopia, in order to help people "have a clearer vision" as many as possible.
We are putting up our efforts in expanding into overseas market to develop new markets in addition to the domestic market.
We have established overseas affiliates in China, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, Germany and Belgium and export our products to other 24 countries and regions.
We not only sell our products but also provide education and training programs and how to use sessions for those countries that are less familiar with contact lenses for the purpose of proper and safe utilization.
In the area of research and development, we have actively engaged in the development of contact lenses where medical agents like eyedrops continuously come out, and seek a new possibility of contact lenses through fusion with medical field as well as medical equipment field.
Moreover, we commemorated the 60th anniversary of foundation in October 2017.
In our gratitude for the communities and the society, we aggressively get involved in various social contribution activities.
For cooperation in solving the problems of nursery school shortage and local revitalization, we built a nursery school near our Konosu Research Institute and invited a social welfare corporation, "Ohisama-kai."
Furthermore, we have made donations to the projects of guide dog development and support of people with visual impairment by the Eye mate Inc. on a continuous basis.
When properly cared for, contact lenses are extremely convenient and comfortable eye care products.
By providing contact lenses and other eye care products, SEED will be committed to support your vision.
Once again I thank you for your continued patronage to SEED products and look forward to serving you in the future.
President and CEO
