CooperVision Launches Contact Sports to Help Teen Athletes Gear Up
Date:5/5/2010

ct lenses. Ten Gear Up Grants in total will be awarded, and submissions will be accepted until June 25, 2010 online at www.mycontactsports.com. There are also a number of helpful resources for teens and parents on the website, including information on contact lenses, a practitioner locator and savings offers.

To help spread the word to teens about Gear Up Grants, CooperVision has teamed up with gold-medal-winning soccer star Heather O'Reilly and WePlay, the largest online youth sports community. For Heather, changing to contact lenses in the 7th grade helped give her the competitive edge she needed to excel – not only enhancing her vision, but also boosting her confidence level. Now a professional soccer player, she has two gold medals to prove how important having the right gear is for an athlete. “I know how important this is because I started wearing contacts when I was 12, and I couldn’t believe the difference it made on the soccer field. I could finally see my opponents’ facial expressions and eye movements, and could even see the spin on the ball. For me, my contacts are just as important to my performance as my cleats and shin guards.”

CooperVision has also partnered with recognized Sports Vision Specialist Dr. Donald Teig to educate teens about the relationship between healthy vision and sports performance. Dr. Teig has found in his practice that teens’ athletic performance can really benefit from wearing contact lenses.
