Unique Partnerships to Support Proactive Eye Care Our partnerships are based on supporting patients, practitioners, students, and organizations, with a shared goal of informing and inspiring proactive eye care. As the global leader in eye care, we continue to commit significant resources in support of educational and pub- lic awareness campaigns that will improve patient and practice outcomes. We have been helping people see better since 1945, and while we are proud of how far we have come, we are even more excited about our future and the endless pos- sibilities before us to deliver additional science-based innovations, discover new ways to enhance sight and improve lives, and develop deeper relationships with our ECP partners. We are reimagining eye care to help more people see, look, and feel their best. References 1. Dumbleton K et al. Comfort and vision with silicone hydrogel lenses: effect of compliance.
