CooperVision Launches New Website in Partnership With Armed Forces Optometric Society

By
PLEASANTON, Calif.—To continue its commitment to serving the U.S. military community, contact lens manufacturer CooperVision, Inc. (NYSE: COO) has launched a website in partnership with the Armed Forces Optometric Society (AFOS), intended to deliver affordable contact lenses to military members and their families. A portion of proceeds from the website will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).

The new website, www.coopervision.com/armedforces, allows military families to purchase CooperVision contact lenses with a guarantee of delivery to any location in the world at which they are stationed. One dollar of each sale (any purchase of CooperVision Biofinity, Avaira or Proclear 1 day contact lenses) will be donated to the WWP.

“As a former member of the U.S. Armed Services, I understand and appreciate the unique demands placed on our military personnel and their families,” said John Weber, CooperVision president. “I am excited for the launch of the new website as it will make it easier and more affordable for military patients to experience the performance and value of CooperVision's contact lenses.”

According to AFOS executive director Dr. Anthony Borgognoni, the primary mission of the AFOS is to serve the U.S. military personnel, for whom healthy eyesight is especially important.

“Since we have the highest vision standards in the world, we are dedicated to preserving vision and eradicating blindness,” he said. “This opportunity with CooperVision serves our military community in pursuing these goals.”
