Exceptional Stability, Vision and Comfort All in One Lens

Posted by CooperVision on Thursday, February 24, 2011

Avaira Toric contact lenses are the latest addition to our 2-week silicone hydrogel family of lenses. So if you have an astigmatism, you now have the option to wear a lens that has an exceptional ability to stay moist and transmit high levels of oxygen through the lens material as a result of our exclusive AQUAFORM® Comfort Science.  The unique material binds water within the lens without the need for additional surface treatments or wetting agents – giving you a comfortable lens day after day.

Avaira Toric at a glance:
• Moist and comfortable from the inside out
• Lets plenty of oxygen flow through to your eye
• Visual performance you can count on
• Softer, more flexible lens material incorporating a UV blocker*

As a world leader in toric contact lenses, CooperVision’s Avaira Toric lenses are designed for consistent fit and visual performance – helping you see clearly every time you blink. Click here for information on rebates for Avaira Toric contact lenses.

*Warning: UV-absorbing contact lenses are not substitutes for protective UV-absorbing eyewear, such as UV-absorbing goggles or sunglasses, as they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. Patients should continue to use UV-absorbing eyewear as directed.

Health Topics are Frequently Searched for Online

Posted by CooperVision on Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Having an online presence in this day and age is critical. Especially in the medical industry, as reports show that health topics continue to be one of the most frequently searched for subjects on the internet, with a reported 80% of all internet users (approximately 59% of the US adult population) searching online for health related information.1 

According to a recently published survey from the Pew Internet Project, searching online for health information ranked third amongst online activities, behind emailing and using a search engine. The most frequently searched for topics include: specific diseases or medical problems, certain medical procedures or treatments, doctors or other health professionals, hospitals or other medical facilities, and health insurance (including private insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid).2
