(PRESS RELEASE) SANTA ANA, CA – Johnson & Johnson Vision announces the launch of the Surgical Vision Experience Center at the Johnson & Johnson Institute in Jacksonville, FL. The center will serve as Johnson & Johnson Vision’s premier physical training space and laboratory setting for a variety of experiential educational programs offering hands-on, in-depth training for practicing ophthalmic surgeons, ophthalmology residents and optometrists.

Trainings are geared toward the safe and effective use of Johnson & Johnson Vision products, with a focus on improving proficiencies, driving consistent high-quality outcomes and developing clinical confidence for participants. Trainings will cover best practices for personalized approaches to intraocular lens selection for cataract procedures, using the first and only topo-integrated wavefront-guided LASIK procedures and best practices for treating the root cause of dry eye.

The curriculum will span the full line of Johnson & Johnson Vision products and equipment for cataract and refractive surgery and ocular surface health, housing the latest innovations in ophthalmic surgery, including the:

● TECNIS Family of Intraocular Lenses & Lens Insertion Systems
● CATALYS Precision Laser System to teach the future of lens extraction
● WHITESTAR SIGNATURE PRO Phacoemulsification System
● HEALON Family of Ophthalmic Viscoelastic Devices
● iFS Advanced Femtosecond Laser
● iDESIGN Refractive Studio
● STAR S4 IR Excimer Laser
● LipiScan Dynamic Meibomian Imager
● Lipiview II Ocular Surface Interferometer
● LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation System

“The Surgical Vision Experience Center reinforces Johnson & Johnson Vision’s global leadership position in eye health, leverages the heritage and strength of the Johnson & Johnson Institute, and demonstrates and deepens our commitment to education for ophthalmic surgery professionals,” said Kelly Gottfried, head of global franchise development for Johnson & Johnson Vision. “The new Surgical Vision Experience Center allows us to expand on the virtual and remote training programs we already offer, such as our premium cataract weekend seminars, to provide best-practice hands-on training where surgeons can discover the latest innovations in ophthalmic surgery to achieve exceptional patient outcomes.”

“The premium cataract seminar offered by Johnson & Johnson Institute is very different than other seminars offered in ophthalmology,” said Michael B. Shapiro, MD, MS, co-founder of Anderson & Shapiro Eye Care. “It brings together a wide spectrum of eye care practitioners, both in ophthalmology and optometry with the same goal to provide a better service in the premium intraocular lens arena. The time spent as a group creates lasting partnerships and collaboration that last far beyond the extent of the weekend program.”
