Mr. Johnson, who brings nearly a decade of experience to his role, is responsible for working with optometry clinics, helping them to add Avulux to their practice and support patients experiencing migraine and light sensitivity.

“I’m looking forward to helping private clinics across the country become Avulux Authorized Providers and build a new sub-specialty around migraine and light sensitivity,” said Mr. Johnson. “Offering Avulux lenses allows eye care providers to both improve patient care and grow their practice, and I’m thrilled to be part of the team making that possible.”

Dr. Charles Posternack, Co-Founder and CEO of Avulux, said, “We launched our lens to eye care providers a year ago and since then we have grown exponentially. Adding Derek Johnson to our team positions us for further expansion and allows us to offer the Avulux lens through more ODs and practices, helping even more people who experience light sensitivity and migraine.”
