    I'm just curious as to what everyones opinion is on the "Provision Premium" contacts made by CooperVision.

    Also, does anyone have any information as to who exactly profits from this lens being sold (other than CooperVision)? An obvious answer would be any practice that sells the lenses, but I'm just wondering about an additional 3rd company that might.

    Thanks to anyone who can provide opinions on these lenses.

        I'm just a preopt studet but I wore provision premium for YEARS and loved em. I had a bad Rx though before I got LASIK.
        +5.50 -2.25 in both eyes.
        Dunno if my opinion matters much but I worked with several doctors who prescribe them religiously. Just thought I'd drop my 2 cents

          Provision Premium (from what I remember) is an Eye Care Centers of America (ECCA) private label.

          Provision Premium is a Frequency 55 spherical lens fit in a 2 week modality.
          Provision Premium Aspheric is a Frequency 55 Aspheric fit as a monthly lens

          ECCA loves Cooper Vision and hates Vistakon... all because they get special pricing from Cooper Vision and they can do the ridiculous "private label" crap.
