CooperVision and Procornea Highlight Investments in Ocular & Clinical Science at NCC 2020
When the Dutch Contact Lens Congress (NCC) opens its doors, attendees will immerse themselves in discussing how contact lens advances factor into the rapidly evolving world of eye health. CooperVision and Procornea, part of CooperVision Specialty EyeCare, announced plans to have a significant presence at the conference. Both will showcase new investments in research, funding, practice tools, products and partnerships designed to help eye care professionals navigate change and shape better clinical outcomes.
NCC has grown since its founding in 2006 to become Europe’s largest contact lens congress. Running from March 15-16 in Veldhoven, The Netherlands, it is expected to draw 1,900 participants from more than 20 countries.
Providing Research Insights and New Funding Sources
More than a dozen CooperVision-affiliated papers and posters were accepted by event organizers. All reflect the company’s global leadership in multiple facets of ocular and clinical science, including innovative methods to address the global myopia epidemic.
At the start of NCC, CooperVision will release more details about the return of its Science and Technology Awards, which brings together independent researchers and CooperVision experts to explore new dimensions in eye care. The 2020 program will solicit research proposals concerning presbyopia and myopia.
Developing Advanced Products for Optimal Outcomes
Within the NCC exhibition hall, attendees will be able to experience inventive products that are helping ECPs meet the growing needs of their practices and patients.
Procornea’s stand will concentrate on the rising prevalence and severity of myopia, and the company’s range of contact lenses designed for myopia management. This includes the groundbreaking CooperVision MiSight® 1 day contact lens.
Partnering to Increase Public Awareness
The Eye Fund (Oogfonds) and Procornea are now collaborating to encourage parents to have their children’s eyes and vision checked regularly. The campaign kicked off in January with a special emphasis on myopia. It has already garnered considerable broadcast media attention and will extend through 2020.
“NCC has become a preeminent contact lens conference, bringing thousands of clinical, academic and research professionals to Veldhoven while simultaneously attracting attention from tens of thousands of their peers worldwide. CooperVision and Procornea are looking forward to revealing more regarding our research, insights, products and programs come mid-March,” said McParland.
