What is the difference between daily wear and flexible wear?
Daily wear contact lenses are worn during the day and must be removed at bedtime. Flexible wear lenses are thinner or have higher water content, allowing more oxygen to pass through to the eye. They can be worn continuously, even overnight, for up to seven days. Eligibility for flexible wear use is evaluated by an eye care professional.
What is the difference between disposable and planned replacement contact lenses?
Disposable lenses are meant to be worn once and thrown away daily, while planned replacement lenses are worn for a prescribed period of time and replaced at regular intervals.
What is the appropriate wearing schedule for me?
Your eye care professional will prescribe your wearing schedule based on the health of your cornea, your lifestyle, your preference, and the type of lens you want to wear.
I can't locate the doctor that last prescribed my CooperVision lenses. What do I do?
We suggest using our Find an Eye Doctor tool to locate an eye care professional near you that prescribes CooperVision lenses.
Can I order lenses from CooperVision or get a trial pair?
Because contact lenses are medical devices and are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, federal regulations prohibit CooperVision from selling or dispensing lenses to anyone other than a licensed eye care professional. We are unable to process any orders for consumers. To obtain trial lenses or a prescription, you will need to see your eye care practitioner. He/she will be able to help you with your contact lens purchase and trial lens needs.
Do you make aphakic lenses in the planned replacement program?
Our Hydrasoft® Toric and Sphere lenses are aphakic lenses that offer a quarterly replacement program. We would suggest that you talk to the eye care professional who prescribed your lenses and inquire about switching to the Hydrasoft brand.
I had laser surgery and now I want to wear contacts lenses. What should I do?
You should speak to an eye care practitioner about the feasibility of wearing contact lenses. He/she is the best person to advise you on glasses vs. contact lenses based on your individual needs.
I plan on asking for CooperVision toric contact lenses. Will I be charged for each lens while I'm trying them?
Doctors' offices set the fees for the contact lenses that they sell. These fees are between the patient and the doctor only. Please be assured that CooperVision offers warranty programs on our toric contact lenses. Please have your doctor contact us regarding our policies.
Can I get samples of lens solutions from CooperVision?
CooperVision does not manufacture or sell contact lens solutions.
I wear CooperVision lenses that are not listed on the site. I want to buy my lenses online. Where can I buy my CooperVision lenses?
Because contact lenses are medical devices regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, federal regulations prohibit CooperVision from selling and dispensing lenses to anyone other than an approved eye care professional or distributor. To place an order for your lenses, you will need to see your eye care practitioner. He/she can then place an order for your lenses or refer you to an alternate source.
