CooperVision Renews Global Gold Sponsorship of Optometry Giving Sight

SYDNEY — Optometry Giving Sight is pleased to announce that CooperVision, Inc. has renewed its commitment as a Global Gold Sponsor for another three years, effective from January 1, 2017.

Mr. Miller noted that CooperVision’s cumulative support for vision care projects that are helping to eliminate uncorrected refractive error is expected to exceed USD$2 million by the end of 2016. In addition to its charitable donation, the company also contributes funding through a patient rebate donation program in the United States, now in its fifth year with more than 80,000 patients having participated; the One Bright Vision cause-related marketing program in Europe, and its global Fight for Sight employee fundraising campaign with matching support from The Cooper Companies in support of the World Sight Day Challenge.

CooperVision also supports a number of specific programs in partnership with Optometry Giving Sight, providing funding as well as sending experts on site for professional guidance and observation. The aforementioned One Bright Vision initiative will screen 30,000 children ages 7-12 in the Chennai region of India during 2016, following a similar effort that screened 100,000 children in Tanzania from 2013 to 2015. Another initiative funded in part by CooperVision is helping introduce optometry as a course of study in Vietnam.
