CooperVision today announced its co- sponsorship of Canadian speed skater Kim Boutin alongside IRIS, The Visual Group—the largest network of optometrists, opticians, and ophthalmologists in Canada. Boutin, a short track medalist on the world stage, will serve as a spokesperson for MyDay® daily disposable contact lenses—a high-performing 1-day lens made with innovative CooperVision® Aquaform® Technology.

“I lead an active lifestyle, so I need a lens that is comfortable throughout the day,” said Boutin. “MyDay® allows me to go full-speed while skating, without the fear of my lenses drying out in cold weather conditions.”

Aquaform® Technology locks in water, so that wearers can achieve all-day comfort while ‡ keeping their eyes clear and white by delivering the oxygen their eyes need .

“CooperVision is focused on helping people to see better each day. We’re proud to help Kim to accomplish that on and off the track,” said Enrique Contreras, Country Manager, CooperVision, Canada. “Because of MyDay® daily disposable lenses, Kim’s vision is clear, enabling her to compete at the highest level.”

Boutin is the first Canadian female short track speed skater to have been awarded three individual medals in the world’s most visible athletic competition.
