Contact lens manufacturer CooperVision unveiled a new, redesigned U.S. website, that provides a range of resources for both eyecare practitioners (ECPs) and contact lens wearers. “This is yet another step in CooperVision’s digital strategy leveraging technology to strengthen our partnership and communications with ECPs helping them solve challenging business problems,” says James Gardner, vice president of marketing, Americas.

Based on research with ECPs, the new creates a more personalized experience for ECPs after they log in. The site showcases tools for marketing and managing their practice including personalized information featuring topCooperVision products, trial lenses available, and the status of their product banks; easy access to product information, fitting tips and tools; and marketing support. Practice locations are automatically entered into a new ECP locator tool for patients. Wearers will also benefit from the enhanced site, which now offers a Lens Finder that provides a lens recommendation based on the wearer’s lifestyle which they can bring to their ECP to discuss the right contact lens for them.

The website features a number of rebates, free trial offers and an enhanced ECP locator to help wearers find an eyecare practitioner in their area.
