PLEASANTON, Calif., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CooperVision, Inc. (NYSE: COO) plans to launch a new website in partnership with the Armed Forces Optometric Society (AFOS), reinforcing the global contact lens manufacturer's commitment to serving the U.S. military community.

"As a former member of the U.S. Armed Services, I understand and appreciate the unique demands placed on our military personnel and their families," John Weber, president, CooperVision said.  "It is important we support our service members and their families.  This new CooperVision website will make it easier and more affordable for military patients to experience the performance and value of CooperVision's lenses.  CooperVision is honored to be a strategic partner in this exciting initiative."

"The Armed Forces Optometric Society's primary mission is to serve our nation's military personnel and veterans," expressed AFOS executive director Dr. Anthony Borgognoni. "Since we have the highest vision standards in the world, we are dedicated to preserving vision and eradicating blindness. This opportunity with CooperVision serves our military community in pursuing these goals."

AFOS was created in 1970 to advance the science of eye care throughout the world.  Today the society has more than 1,200 military and federal doctors of optometry across the country and internationally.  AFOS has the largest group of Vision Scientists worldwide, and strives to elevate the standards of eye care for the benefit of men, women and children everywhere.
