Johnson & Johnson Vision Celebrates 20 Years of Helping Cataract Patients With the ‘See More’ Campaign and Global Patient Story Search

By
SANTA ANA, Calif.—Johnson & Johnson Vision said it has begun a month-long celebration of the 20th anniversary of the TECNIS platform, the proprietary combination of materials and design on which Johnson & Johnson Vision IOLs (intraocular lenses) are built. Twenty years ago, a team of researchers and innovators created TECNIS, setting in motion two decades of breakthroughs, including the world’s first aspherical lens and extended depth of focus lens, according to a recent announcement. In celebration of the 20-year anniversary, Johnson & Johnson Vision is launching the “See More” campaign to educate patients and physicians on what is possible with cataract surgery and how the TECNIS portfolio unlocks greater potential for patients.

Additionally, Johnson & Johnson Vision is donating $20,000 to the Himalayan Cataract Project (HCP)|Cure Blindness in honor of the organization’s dedication to spread cataract awareness. HCP | Cure Blindness is an independent, nonprofit organization that works to eradicate preventable blindness in countries across the globe and has screened and treated more than 11.5 million people and performed more than 940,000 surgeries in 20 countries.

Johnson & Johnson Vision will continue to roll out the campaign throughout 2021 by launching a global story search. Stories inside the U.S. about how cataract surgery has enabled patients to “See More” via video, photo or text will be collected here at jjvision.com/tecnis-see-more.
The stories outside of the U.S. will be collected in accordance with the local and regional data privacy regulations.

"For two decades, we've dedicated ourselves to creating breakthroughs in cataract treatment and delivering the best optics available in terms of quality of vision,” Nikki Sidi, vice president, global strategic marketing, surgical vision at Johnson & Johnson Vision. “We believe the quality of the lens is only as good as the platform it is built on, [which is] why TECNIS is both our legacy and our future.”

In 2021, Johnson & Johnson Vision will continue to roll out new TECNIS IOLs, including TECNIS Synergy IOL, TECNIS Symfony IOL, and TECNIS Eyhance IOL, all available at launch with astigmatism correcting options under the next-generation Toric II platform.
