CooperVision Launches A New Website For U.S. Military Personnel With Proceeds To Help The Wounded Warrior Project®

PLEASANTON, Calif., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CooperVision, Inc. (NYSE: COO) today announced the launch of a new website in partnership with the Armed Forces Optometric Society (AFOS), reinforcing the global contact lens manufacturer's continued commitment to serving the U.S. military community. By logging onto www.coopervision.com/armedforces, military members and their families can purchase CooperVision's contact lenses affordably and be assured guaranteed delivery wherever they are located around the world.

For every box of CooperVision Biofinity®, Avaira® and Proclear® 1 day contact lenses purchased through the website, CooperVision will donate $1 to the Wounded Warrior Project ® (WWP). The Wounded Warrior Project ® takes a holistic approach when serving the military community and their families to nurture the mind and body, and encourages economic empowerment and engagement.

"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," John Weber, president, CooperVision said. "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." 

"The Armed Forces Optometric Society's primary mission is to serve our nation's military personnel and veterans," expressed AFOS executive director Dr. Anthony Borgognoni. "Since we have the highest vision standards in the world, we are dedicated to preserving vision and eradicating blindness. This opportunity with CooperVision serves our military community in pursuing these goals."
