CooperVision to Lead Myopia Management and Specialty Lens Education at Global Specialty Lens Symposium 2024




(PRESS RELEASE) SAN RAMON, CA — CooperVision will shine a spotlight on myopia management and specialty lenses at the 2024 Global Specialty Lens Symposium (GSLS) with multiple education sessions and scientific programs to advance the way that eye care practitioners (ECPs) deliver clinical care. The event—which will take place January 17-20 in Las Vegas—will feature several professional educational sessions, as well as a robust scientific program.

“A huge part of our partner-centric leadership is to provide ECPs with relevant education, high-value tools and resources to help them to grow their practices,” said Tony Sommer, General Manager, Myopia Management & Specialty Contact Lenses, CooperVision, Americas. “Our goal is for ECPs to leave GSLS feeling more confident prescribing our innovative portfolio of contact lenses and positively impacting the quality of life of their patients.”

CooperVision will sponsor multiple discussions surrounding myopia management and irregular cornea over three days, including:

In addition, the company will share several scientific papers and posters at GSLS, reinforcing its commitment to taking an evidence-based approach to care. Among those are a new exploration of trends in U.S. pediatric eye exams and contact lens prescribing, an in-depth analysis of MiSight 1 day efficacy for children who exhibit slower and faster myopia progression. More details are expected to be released in the coming days.

Now prescribed in more than 30 countries, CooperVision’s MiSight 1 day is the first and only soft contact lens approved by the FDA to both correct vision and slow the progression of myopia in children aged 8-12 at the initiation of treatment.
