Life is a Contact Sport, Gear Up!

Posted by CooperVision on Thursday, April 15, 2010

CooperVision’s Contact Sports program kicks off today with the launch of a dedicated teen website – Teens are all about choice and independence. We want to provide them with the opportunity to perform at their best during sports and extracurricular activities – when sometimes wearing glasses can get in the way of success.

What Contact Sports is All About:
• Dedicated Teen Website –
• Gear Up Grants – CooperVision is giving away ten $2,500 grants to teens across the country for new gear (sports equipment, performance gear). Check out for details and how to enter!
• Teen Spokespeople – Heather O’Reilly (professional soccer player) and Daniel Dhers (professional BMX bike rider) are on board to help us spread the word about contact lenses and sports.
• Partnerships with and the National High School Coaches Association will help us spread the word about Gear Up Grants.
• Social Media – engaging teens in the world they live in. Check out what CooperVision is doing in social media: (for Eye Care Professionals) and (for Patients)
