The campaign aims to raise consumer awareness of contact lenses and support the optometric profession by highlighting the importance of the practitioner in contact lens prescribing and management. It includes a mix of traditional mass media including radio, print and digital advertising. Thirty and fifteen-second radio spots will start in October on The Hamish & Andy’s Drive Time show in Melbourne (Fox FM) and Sydney (2DayFM). The print campaign will feature in WHO, InStyle and Women’s Health magazines, while digital advertising will target consumers in Australia and New Zealand via social media including Facebook and Instagram.

The campaign encourages potential and current contact lens wearers to visit their optometrist for a contact lens consultation. If the patient is suitable for, and fitted with, Dailies Total1 they will receive a complimentary trial pack from their optometrist. Additionally they will be eligible to enter the competition to win one of 1600 The Iconic gift vouchers. If the optometrist prescribes Dailies Total1 lenses and the patient purchases either the 30 or 90 lens packs, they will be eligible to enter the competition to win a trip for four, sailing in The Whitsundays.

The competitions run from 19 October to 27 December 2015.
