SAN RAMON, Calif.—Affirming its commitment to supporting eyecare professionals (ECPs) worldwide through clinical education, CooperVision has become a sponsor of Contact Lens Update (contactlensupdate.com), a digital journal published six times per year by the Centre for Ocular Research & Education (CORE). The digital magazine provides “a global platform for unbiased clinical insights based in current research,” according to the CooperVision announcement. Since 2011, each issue has provided dependable and up-to-date ocular health information for more than 60,000 readers.

November marked Contact Lens Update’s 50th edition. Noted Australian optometrist and research scientist Paul Gifford was invited to guest curate content for the 50th edition, which focused on orthokeratology.

“CooperVision is proud to become a sponsor of Contact Lens Update, reflecting our aligned objectives to share new developments with ECPs that help advance contact lens patient care and practice success,” Gary Orsborn, OD, CooperVision’s vice president, global professional and clinical affairs, said in the announcement. “We work closely with and consider CORE to be a key research partner. Contact Lens Update is known for aggregating new research findings and identifying key insights, translating ocular science for the benefit of contact lens clinical practice and wearers.”

Karen Walsh, MCOptom, a CORE clinical scientist and the publication’s editor, said the organization is delighted to have CooperVision as a partner, which will ensure the publication’s “continued availability and evolution for tens of thousands of dedicated readers across six continents.”

In addition to accessing a complete archive of back issues, ECPs can visit ContactLensUpdate.com’s resource library for no-cost professional tools, patient resources, images and video. The site also houses complementary technical training videos produced by International Association of Contact Lens Educators, plus an industry glossary.
