Sofmed® breathables™:

LOOKING OUT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

At America's Best® Contacts & Eyeglasses, we care about taking better care of our environment, just like you. That includes the use of plastic.
Right now, plastic is a necessary part of keeping Sofmed® breathables™ contact lenses and packaging sterile and safe. But there's a way to balance how we use it to help reduce the amount of plastic in our oceans.

Clean Lenses

THE ANSWER: NET PLASTIC NEUTRALITY1

All Sofmed® breathables™ contact lenses2 sold in the U.S. are now net plastic neutral.1* Simply put, for every Sofmed® breathables™ contact lens2 sold, the manufacturer, CooperVision®, purchases a credit from Plastic Bank® to collect and convert an equal amount1 of plastic through their global network. That includes everything that goes into your contacts—the lenses, blisters, cartons, and even the ink printed on the boxes!

Good for the Community

GOOD FOR THE PLANET, GOOD FOR COMMUNITIES, GOOD FOR YOU

1. Net plastic neutrality is established by purchasing credits from Plastic Bank. A credit represents the collection and conversion of one kilogram of plastic that may reach or be destined for waterways. The manufacturer purchases credits equal to the weight of plastic in Sofmed® breathables™ orders in a specified time period. Sofmed® breathables™ plastic is determined by the weight of plastic in the blister, the lens, and the secondary package, including laminates, adhesives, and auxiliary inputs (e.g. ink).
