Johnson & Johnson Vision Statement on Sightbox

Johnson&Johnson VISION

October 28, 2019 Jacksonville – Johnson & Johnson Vision announced today that it will cease customer-facing operations for Sightbox, its U.S.-based online contact lens subscription service, while it evaluates options for the business over the next few months.

The company said this was a strategic decision and will enable it to focus its connected commerce investments, which remain a priority, in other program areas. 

Sightbox will ship existing members their remaining annual contact lens subscriptions free of charge but will accept no renewals or new subscriptions during the evaluation period. Johnson & Johnson Vision is reducing the Sightbox workforce but maintaining some roles key to the evaluation process.

The company will provide an update at the conclusion of the process which is expected to take several months.
