CooperVision takes Unlock the Potential event on the road

The company will explore the emotional benefits of wearing contact lenses and the clinical argument for silicone hydrogel contact lenses

Delegates at the CooperVision unlock the potential event

CooperVision is visiting 18 regional venues across the UK during October and November as the contact lens company takes its Unlock the Potential event on the road.

Originally launched at London’s Rosewood Hotel in June (pictured), the event is designed to provide practitioners with an insight into the emotional benefits of contact lenses for patients and the clinical argument for fitting silicone hydrogel contact lenses.

The events started in Newark on 1 October and will visit Newport, Horsham and Belfast, ending at Winchester Science Centre on 21 November.

Head of marketing and professional services at CooperVision, Mark Draper, said: “We’re excited to be taking our Unlock the Potential event to so many different locations, so we can share our recent consumer insights with as many eye care professionals as possible.”

Attendees will learn about consumer insights on the impact of vision care recommendations and watch patient testimonials on the emotional impact of wearing contact lenses.

A clinical review of silicone hydrogel lenses will be followed by a discussion workshop, which is accredited for three CET points.
