Sightbox will not change its business practices following acquisition by Johnson & Johnson Vision.
Sightbox will continue to book members with highly rated optometrists, and pay these doctors their out-of-pocket "cash pay" rate on the day of the member exam. Sightbox will continue to place Eye Care Professionals at the center of the contact lens process, and support any major brand of soft contact lens that a doctor prescribes for their patient. Sightbox has instituted a firewall for information flow, and will continue to protect the privacy of our members as well as data related to all the contact lens manufacturers.
We are excited to work alongside Johnson & Johnson Vision to put eye health at the center of the contact lens industry. We hope that our model will encourage compliance with in-person exams and lens wearing best practices. We were founded with a passion for eye health and deep respect for the Eye Care Professional community, and believe that our partnership with Johnson & Johnson Vision will help to serve this mission.
