PLEASANTON, Calif., October 12, 2017 — As an extension of its partnership with eye care professionals to share valuable insights and information across the profession, CooperVision, Inc. has introduced ECP Viewpoints. This one-stop resource is accessible from CooperVision’s practitioner homepage (www.CooperVision.com/practitioner/ecp-viewpoints), and features original content including peer-written articles, legislative updates, and news and information from CooperVision’s Professional Affairs team.


ECP Viewpoints includes focus areas such as: “For Your Practice,” featuring articles written by eye care professionals about how practices are adapting to changes in patient behavior and the marketplace; “From the Lane,” which enables practitioners to share insights and practical experiences for building a successful contact lens practice; and “Best Practices,” containing updates from the program’s current and past honorees. Other sections include “Legislative Advocacy,” “Product Spotlight,” and “Optometry Students & Educators.”


“To keep our finger on the pulse of optometry and engage with our customers in meaningful ways, we partner with eye care professionals every day,” said Michele Andrews, OD, Senior Director of Professional and Academic Affairs, North America, CooperVision. “We’re uncovering insights about common topics of interest among practitioners, and also finding success stories—eye care professionals who have knowledge and experience to share. ECP Viewpoints is an opportunity for these insights to be cast more broadly, enabling more peer-to-peer information sharing across the profession.”


Content will be updated regularly, as well as aggregated into a monthly email newsletter. To read ECP Viewpoints, visit www.CooperVision.com/practitioner/ecp-viewpoints.
