It originally began as The Cooper Companies Inc. in the United States of America in 1958. In 1983 the company went public and CooperVision continued as a separate group in the optical industry. In 2004, the company acquired Ocular Sciences, becoming, at once, the world leader in soft contact lenses in one-third of the world. It is still a world player in the market for contact lenses and keeps growing by, among other things, acquisitions, such as the most recent, Sauflon, in 2014.

The Proclear series lenses are distinguished mainly by the use of the so-called PC Technology from CooperVision, through which water molecules are actually part of the Proclear contact lens, giving it a natural resistance against dehydration.
