PLEASANTON, CALIF., September 30, 2016 — CooperVision has unveiled PrescribeOyxgen.com, a new website that provides eye care professionals with details about the benefits of contact lenses with high oxygen transmissibility.
“CooperVision’s partnership with eye care professionals around the world is leading the more rapid adoption of 1-day silicone hydrogel contact lenses,” said Michelle North, Marketing Director. “PrescribeOxygen.com will help educate eye care professionals not only about our portfolio of silicone hydrogel 1-day contact lenses, but the data that supports prescribing patients with a healthier 1-day lens-wearing experience.”
Research shows that U.S. 1-day wearers habitually wear their lenses for at least 15 hours per day and 7 days per week.1 In addition, the research also shows that 75% of contact lens wearers report napping while wearing their contact lenses at least once in the last month.1*
With CooperVision’s portfolio of silicone hydrogel 1-day contact lenses, eye care professionals can fit virtually all patients into a 1-day contact lens that provides high oxygen, comfort and convenience.
“Two of my favorite lenses are MyDay® and clariti® 1 day,” said Dr. Ami Ranani, OD, Somers Eye Center, Somers, N.Y. “ My patients really love the comfort of MyDay® and I generally fit it on those not happy with their existing 1-day lenses. I recommend clariti® 1 day for new wearers or existing hydrogel 1-day wearers who need the extra oxygen, but won’t pay a premium price. clariti® 1 day is also my go-to for my 2-week and monthly patients switching to 1-day lenses.”
