  • CooperVision Recaps Successful Complimentary Contact Lens

    Program for Essential Hospital Workers

    SAN RAMON, Calif., September 22, 2020—Over the past four months, CooperVision’s Essential Hospital Workers Complimentary Contact Lens Program enabled eye care professionals to provide support to patients working on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. By the program’s conclusion on August 31, nearly 570 optometry practices from 46 states and the District of Columbia had chosen to extend the complimentary lenses to their patients.

    “During these critical months of the pandemic, the Essential Hospital Workers Complimentary Contact Lens Program gave practitioners the opportunity to make personal connections with patients who needed them most,” said Jerry Warner, President, Americas and Global Commercial Functions, CooperVision. “At CooperVision, it has always been our mission to help improve the way people see each day, and we’re grateful to have had the ability to partner with eye care professionals to help those who have given so much of themselves to this fight.”

    Through the program, CooperVision worked with eye care professionals to supply essential hospital workers with contact lenses—one box per eye, per patient—at no cost. The complimentary lenses included all 1-day, 2-week, and monthly brands from the company, such as clariti® 1 day, MyDay®, Biofinity®, Avaira® and Proclear® brands.*

    As the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic continue, CooperVision remains committed to supporting eye care professionals and their patients. For the latest updates on CooperVision’s efforts, visit https://coopervision.com/practitioner/covid-practitioner-resources.

  • CooperVision Helps Practices Leverage Market Trends with Shift to Silicone Hydrogel 1-Day Contact Lenses

    in New Peer-to-Peer Webinar Series

    SAN RAMON, Calif., September 29 2020—The COVID-19 pandemic is accelerating patient demand for health and safety, quality, and convenience in many areas of life, including contact lens wear. This trend presents an opportunity for eye care professionals to make a shift to silicone hydrogel 1-day contact lenses for the benefit of patients—and practices. CooperVision has launched a new program called “SiHy 1-Day: The Time is Now,” which begins with a series of webinars featuring practitioners who have already made this change in their practices.

    “As eye care professionals, we know that the path to success is never linear. Challenges can be turned into opportunities, and if there was ever a time to make a change, it’s now,” said Steve Rosinski, OD, Senior Manager of North America Professional and Academic Affairs, CooperVision. “At CooperVision, we are well-suited to be your partner in elevating the value of SiHy 1-day lenses to your patients due to our leadership in SiHys and broad product portfolio. Through this program, we will leverage the expertise of your peers, who will provide insights into how to have these patient discussions, particularly given the current climate.”

    The series of three webinars are scheduled for October and feature Jack McIntyre, OD, of Drs McIntyre, Garza, Avila & Jurica in Corpus Christi, Texas; Drew Provost, OD, of Great Hills Eye Care in Austin, Texas; and Jennifer Stewart, OD, of Norwalk Eye Care in Norwalk, Conn. The three practitioners will engage in live discussion about their experiences and provide helpful ways for their peers to adapt and harness the current trends.

  • SAN RAMON, Calif., October 1, 2020—Celebrating the innovative ways that U.S. optometric practices deliver exceptional patient care and advance of the profession, CooperVision has begun its sixth annual search for the nation’s Best Practices. Honorees not only gain widespread recognition; they are given exclusive opportunities to collaborate with and learn from other creative, motivated practices that have forged their own pathways to success.

    Since 2015, 50 eye care practices from across the U.S. and representing all facets of the profession have been named to this prestigious group. The Best Practices program reflects CooperVision’s belief that even as market dynamics change—particularly this year with the COVID-19 pandemic—passionate and dedicated eye care professionals remain central to ensuring the best patient outcomes.

    “Due to the unprecedented challenges presented by the pandemic, we stood arm-in-arm with practices this year,” said Michele Andrews, OD, Senior Director of Professional and Academic Affairs, North America, CooperVision. “Through it all, there are remarkable stories of perserverance from practices who recognized the hurdles, seized the opportunity to pivot, stepped outside of their comfort zones— and are stronger for it. We can’t wait to hear more about how practices navigated 2020, celebrate those achievements, and bring them into the Best Practices family to share and learn from each other.”

    As eye care continues to evolve, so too has Best Practices. This year, CooperVision is introducing new branding for the program that symbolizes the multi-dimensional energy and enthusiasm common among recipients. 2021 also brings some changes to the application process designed to help a broader spectrum of practices be considered. This includes a combination of pointed questions to help candidates dive more deeply into certain areas of their practices, as well as an opportunity to showcase elements of their stories that may be considered “outside of the box.”

    Best Practices applicants are encouraged to share insights and experiences gleaned from their day-to-day practice that have contributed to their success. Candidates will be evaluated based on their approaches to the development of an extraordinary patient experience; trends in technology, products, and business; their role in the advancement of fellow eye care professionals and the profession; and leadership in areas such as advocacy, community, clinical care, or sustainability.

    All U.S. independent and corporate optometry practices currently fitting any brand of contact lenses are eligible to apply, although the program is not solely focused on such. Past honorees regularly express their surprise that Best Practices is so dedicated to the eye care professionals and their accomplishments, with a mission of sharing their ideas for the benefit of the broader eye care industry.

    Applications can be submitted at https://coopervision.com/practitioner/coopervision-best-practices-recognition-program through November 23, 2020, and will be reviewed by a panel of judges including past Best Practices honorees, industry experts, and CooperVision leaders. The 2021 Best Practices will be announced early next year.

    Best Practices honorees are brought together at the annual Best Practices Summit, which provides an opportunity for education and collaboration on a variety of practice management and clinical practice topics. Past Best Practices Summits have also featured keynote speakers to hone the honorees’ skills in the areas of change management, innovation, and storytelling. Honorees are also broadly recognized throughout the profession by serving on professional panels, showcasing their expertise with prominent eye care media, and representing the program at industry events.

    Last year, CooperVision introduced a complementary Best Practices scholarship program, which provides third-year optometry students with the opportunity to attend the educational summit. Applications for this aspect of the program will be released later this year.

    For more information about the Best Practices initiative, to review stories from past honorees, or to apply, visit https://coopervision.com/practitioner/coopervision-best-practices-recognition-program. For full details on the Best Practices terms and conditions, including eligibility requirements, refer to https://coopervision.com/practitioner/coopervision-best-practices-recognition-program.

  • A closer look at your child's distance vision

    What can you do when your child tells you they’re struggling to see the board at school? Or that things are beginning to look blurrier the further they get from them? One cause for this blurry distance vision could be myopia. Myopia causes light rays to focus at a point in front of the retina rather than directly on the surface, owing to elongation of the eye. Myopic progression is when prescriptions increase over time, and higher prescriptions have been linked to sight-threatening conditions later in life such as, retinal detachment, glaucoma and myopic maculopathy.1 

    Even children with fairly low prescriptions have a higher risk of glaucoma and retinal detachment compared to non-myopic children, and that risk multiplies as their prescriptions get stronger.2


    81% of eye care professionals agree that myopia is one of the biggest problems impacting children’s eyesight today.3 But until now, traditional eyeglasses and contact lenses available in the U.S. have only been developed to correct blurred vision, but they do nothing to help slow gradual prescription increases.  

    81%
    of eyecare professionals agree myopia is one of the biggest problems impacting children's eyesight today.3

    Focusing on your child's vision, now and in the future

    Generally, myopia first occurs in school-age children and progresses until about age 20.4 According to the American Optometric Association, 34% of children ages 12-17 are myopic. This is due in part to changing lifestyles, with children spending less time outdoors and more time focusing on close objects like digital screens.


    With FDA approval of a new soft contact lens, MiSight® 1 day, CooperVision will empower eye care professionals and parents to take on pediatric myopia’s* growing prevalence and severity with a proven approach scientifically designed for the challenge.
