Bright Eye Wins “Best Practice” Award from CooperVision!

fun award

Dr. Nate, Dr. Beth, and Cristina are proud to announce that Bright Eyes Family Vision Care has been honored with the 2021 CooperVision Best Practices donation! In the photo above, you can see the Bright Eye staff showing off the new plaque. This award is very meaningful because it shows how strong our passion is for our patients and their care. Every year CooperVision’s Best Practices program highlights optometric practices in the U.S. that advance the profession through innovation, industry leadership, and exceptional patient experience.

As CooperVision explains:

“Every year, we seek eye care practices who have tackled the profession’s challenges head on. But when we launched the Best Practices program, we never could have imagined a year like 2020 and the impact it would have on optometry. We weren’t sure what we would see in this year’s applications,” said Michele Andrews, OD, Vice President of Professional and Government Affairs, North America, CooperVision. “The stories we received were remarkable. It has been a true testament to the strength and resiliency of eye care professionals—that they have not only made it through the hardships associated with the pandemic, but that they have embraced them to make their practices stronger than ever. And they’re ready to share their secrets to success for the benefit of others. I’m so proud to partner with these new honorees.”

This is a great way for us to start 2021 off strong! We are ready for bigger and better things in the future!

Cooper Vision Contact Lens Recall

Recall Packaging
We just wanted to spread the word about a recall issued recently by Cooper Vision. The affected lenses appear to be limited to the Avaira Toric and Avaira Sphere models. We do not fit these specific lenses frequently at our office but your eye doctor may. So if you wear contact lenses and are unsure of the brand you wear, please check your boxes or call your eye doctor to verify. Cooper’s recall page also has Lot Number verification function to see if your lenses are affected.

And as a reminder, remember to take proper care of your contacts by cleaning them daily, discarding them according to the wearing schedule your doctor prescribed, and replacing your lens case every couple of months. Your eyes will thank you!

All the best,

Justin Schoonover

CooperVision Gear Up Grants

At Bright Eyes, we try to stay current in the opportunities given to our patients. As contact lens companies go, it’s usually in the form of rebates and annual supply savings. Recently however, one company has gone above and beyond the product savings to offer an opportunity in an activity many of us and our kids participate in but usually don’t associate with wearing contacts: athletics. Contact lenses are a necessary piece of “equipment” in many athletes’ gear bags. Because glasses are cumbersome and can even be dangerous in certain sports, contacts are a comfortable and healthy alternative that give athletes a crisp and complete field of vision.

CooperVision, a company that manufactures, among others, the Proclear, Biofinity, Biomedics, and Frequency line of contacts, is holding a contest in which it will award ten prizes of $2,500 to athletic teams, athletes, or even community sporting organizations. They want to make sure teams and individuals have the proper “gear” to help them compete. Plus any member of the team who currently wears contacts or glasses will also have the chance to be fitted with CooperVision contact lenses for an entire year.

To enter you must complete the online form and create a short video or series of photos introducing your team and why you think you should win. What could you use the grant for? Whatever you think your team needs to succeed: new jerseys or uniforms, new equipment, transportation funds to your next away game. You must hurry though, because the deadline to submit is June 25th.

All the best,

Justin Schoonover
