Title Sponsors CooperVision at NEG 2019 – celebrating contact lens heroes At this year’s NEG conference in Nottingham, CooperVision is celebrating the difference eye care professionals make every day, under the theme of ‘Celebrating incredible contact lens heroes. There will be a focus on how together, CooperVision and eye care professionals are taking on some of the biggest contact lens challenges – from tackling myopia with a soft lens proven to reduce the progression of myopia in children, to taking on hypoxia through silicone hydrogel one-day options for more wearers. The challenge of overcoming contact lens wearer dropout will also be a key topic.    CooperVision is proud to once again be a Title sponsor of this year’s event and is looking forward to giving a warm welcome to delegates.
