Posted by Dennis Murphy on Thursday, January 28, 2010

On the heels of an invigorating and motivating North America Annual Sales Meeting, I’d like to share with you what CooperVision has planned for 2010. Now more than ever, CooperVision is committed to our partnership with you, the practitioner. This year, we are expanding our sales and sales support organizations, while focusing our expanding resources on not only bringing you the best lenses in the industry, but also on managing both excellent patient care and a very successful practice.

The average industry experience across our sales force is 15 years, with an average of nearly ten years of sales experience with CooperVision. With this high level of industry expertise and passion, the CooperVision sales team can offer you a perspective on our industry and the world of contact lenses that is truly unique. In addition to the largest offering of contact lenses intended to fit the wide spectrum of your patient needs, in 2010 we will continue to offer resources, continuing education, and tools to help you get the most out of your patient visit. 

            We are also increasing our marketing efforts. Be on the lookout for new and exciting campaigns that will bring you tools and marketing programs to leverage social media specifically for your practice!  Be sure to ask your CooperVision Account Executive about these exciting programs. Our Research & Development team has a multitude of initiatives in 2010, including a substantial new product pipeline. Stay tuned to On Eye and to hear more.

            At CooperVision, we understand your business is all about your customer. For us, our business is all about you.

The State of the Contact Lens Industry

Posted by Dennis Murphy on Tuesday, December 15, 2009

At this time last year the economy was in crisis. Industries across the board, including the contact lens industry, were braced for a year of financial hardship. While many industries had significantly down years in 2009, the contact lens market grew by 2% to 4%, depending on which metric one chooses.

          The fact that growth could take place under very difficult economic circumstances demonstrates that the contact lens market, while certainly not recession-proof, is, to an extent, recession-resistant. We attribute this to the important role contact lenses play in people’s lives—a role people are not willing to give up, even when money is tight.

          Now, as we move into 2010, we expect to see more rapid growth, driven by daily disposable lenses, multifocal lenses, and newer materials. Log In or Register to continue reading the State of the Contact Lens Industry post.
