“All of us at Johnson & Johnson are guided by Our Credo in our approach to supporting patients, health care professionals, customers, and the global community we serve.” said Ted Lachmansingh, Business Director, Johnson & Johnson Vision Canada. “The Johnson & Johnson Vision organization is looking to the future with optimism as we continue to partner with the community of eye care providers.”
Initiatives launched in direct response to COVID-19 in Canada include:
– Prioritizing Safety First by investing in COVID-19 research to develop a vaccine with a goal of one billion units on a not-for-profit basis, and through the distribution of over 30,000 pieces of locally-made PPE (breath shields and floor decals) to Canadian optometric practices. Johnson & Johnson Vision is continuing to provide robust plans at our manufacturing sites to maintain service and safe delivery, including remote customer support by our Representatives to ensure our customers receive safe and effective information on contact lenses.
– Continuing Industry and Practice Support by providing free standard direct-to-patient shipping until December 31, 2020, and offering temporary online rebate submissions through our ACUVUE® Canada Rebate Portal. Johnson & Johnson Vision also offers the ACUVUE® Library, a digital toolkit containing eblasts, social posts and web banners and useful safety of contact lens information.
– Supporting Optometry Students by helping ensure all 4th year students meet graduation requirements through online clinical case education. Ongoing educational support can be found via the Johnson & Johnson Vision Pro site.
Johnson & Johnson Vision is committed to supporting Canadian optometry and opticianry and will continue to evolve support programs to help customers through the recovery phase. For more information on programs, please reach out to your Representative.
