The Melbourne launch of CooperVision’s Biofinity Energys contact lens at the Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium

About 250 optometrists attended the Melbourne launch of CooperVision’s newest soft contact lens, Biofinity Energys for digital eye fatigue.

The joint CooperVision and Cornea and Contact Lens Society of Australia event took place at Melbourne Aquarium on 29 March as part of a national road-show which started in Sydney.

CooperVision said a survey conducted after the Sydney event showed 30 out of 31 optometrists who attended said they were likely to trial Biofinity Energys after hearing about the lens, and of those 22 said that three or more patients each week complained about symptoms of digital eye fatigue.

Dr Nicole Carnt from the Centre for Vision Research at Westmead Institute for Medical Research gave a presentation on minimising risk and maximising healthy contact lens wear.

The road-show continues this week in Brisbane on 4 April, Adelaide on 5 April and Perth on 11 April.
