The Student Complimentary Lens Program provides optometry students with a free 6-month supply of CooperVision® lenses during each year of their optometry school education. This program is designed to familiarize students with the experience of wearing a variety of CooperVision products.

Free 6-month supply of CooperVision contact lenses for the student’s own use every academic year.
- Firsthand experience with different CooperVision product families each year:
Try a different CooperVision product each school year and gain personal experience wearing a variety of lenses.
How the Program Works
To obtain a supply of contact lenses from CooperVision, students must have an eye examination and contact lens fitting at the school clinic. Upon completion of all necessary follow-up, they will obtain a valid contact lens prescription. At that time, they may order a complimentary 6-month supply of the prescribed CooperVision lenses per academic year. Students may only order one 6-month supply of any CooperVision brand. If they would like a 6-month supply of lenses in consecutive years, they must be fit for a different CooperVision product.
Complimentary contact lens supplies must be requested through the proper administrative channels at the school and then ordered directly from CooperVision. Orders should not be placed through the school’s contact lens distributor.
Who Is Eligible?
All optometry school students are eligible for one 6-month supply annually of CooperVision contact lenses during each year of their optometric education. Residents and faculty are not able to participate in this program.
Program participants are generally third- and fourth-year optometry students.
Contact the school clinic administrators to schedule an eye examination and contact lens fitting appointment. Lens orders must be placed via email at firstname.lastname@example.org through the Contact Lens Department Administrator who is responsible for placing contact lens orders at each school.
Students are able to fill their prescription after completing the fitting process for each lens type.
