USV Optical Inc. intends to lay off 299 workers in Blackwood, NJ, according to a notice the company filed with the state.

The job cuts are expected to take place by the end of 2020, ROINJ reports. Among the positions are production, lab support and helpline workers.

Under the name U.S. Vision, the company operates as a manufacturer and supplier of eyeglasses.
