JOHNSON & JOHNSON VISION CARE DIVISION OF JOHNSON & JOHNSON INC. LAUNCHES NEW PROGRAM TO SUPPORT AUTHORIZED CUSTOMERS IN CANADA
 
TORONTO, ON (October 5, 2016) – Johnson & Johnson Vision Care division of Johnson & Johnson Inc. (JJVC) announced today the Canadian launch of the ACUVUE® AUTHORIZED PARTNER Program: a new initiative to support and recognize its customers that exhibit good business practices.

Some unauthorized sources are not only creating an environment where it’s difficult for other customers to remain competitive, but may also potentially be putting a patient’s eye health at risk. When a patient purchases a product from an unauthorized source, there are potential risks such as a product being: damaged, counterfeit, stolen, mishandled, or expired.

The ACUVUE® AUTHORIZED PARTNER Program is being introduced to support JJVC Customers in communicating their authorized status to patients and differentiating themselves from unauthorized sources. The Program will help customers build continued trust and long-term relationships with their patients. These authorized customers will have the opportunity to proudly advertise at their locations, stores and websites, the ACUVUE® Authorized Partner logo, which provides a key signal to patients that they are purchasing from an authorized source.

“We fully believe that through the launch of this Program, we are taking steps to support the industry and help protect the public by educating them on the value of purchasing from authorized sources,” said Ted Lachmansingh, Business Director, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care division of Johnson & Johnson Inc.

“Johnson & Johnson Vision Care recognizes the value of our good standing customers and the importance of their patients’ eye care,” said Greg Munroe, Senior Manager, National & Key Accounts, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care division of Johnson & Johnson Inc. “We’re confident this initiative will provide a new resource to help our customers demonstrate their offering of an authentic ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lens experience to their patients.”
