J J Vision - IAPBIn a significant move towards advancing global eye health, the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) has announced the inclusion of Johnson & Johnson Vision as a Band A Member. This strategic partnership aims to fervently advocate for enhanced eye health initiatives on a global scale.

With over 2 billion individuals suffering from vision impairment that is either preventable or treatable, the collaboration between Johnson & Johnson Vision and IAPB signifies a profound commitment to addressing this pressing issue. Peter Menziuso, Company Group Chairman at Johnson & Johnson Vision, articulated the company's vision, stating, "While we've come an incredibly long way in terms of treatments and health standards, we have a long road yet to travel. At Johnson & Johnson Vision, our mission is to make vision possible for patients around the world through innovation, education, and partnership. We are honored to join the IAPB to help advocate for better eye health and know our collective actions—today, tomorrow, and in the future—have the potential to improve the future of eye health around the world."

Peter Holland, CEO of IAPB, expressed his enthusiasm, saying, "We are delighted to welcome Johnson & Johnson Vision to the IAPB, joining over 200 organizations working towards a world where no one experiences unnecessary or preventable sight loss, and everyone, everywhere can reach their full potential. IAPB and our global membership will greatly benefit from Johnson & Johnson Vision's knowledge and expertise in areas such as Refractive Error and Cataract, and will help enhance our advocacy work to see an end to avoidable sight loss by 2030."

In addition to becoming a member of IAPB, Johnson & Johnson Vision has embraced the Love Your Eyes campaign by becoming World Sight Day Global Partners. This year, World Sight Day activities, coordinated by IAPB, its global partners, and members, will place a spotlight on the world of work under the theme of "Love Your Eyes at Work." This theme underscores the critical importance of prioritizing eye health for employee productivity, safety, and overall well-being.
