Sightbox announced that it has joined the Health Care Alliance for Patient Safety, which was founded in 2018 to advocate for patient safety and to protect and defend the doctor-patient relationship.
“We know that there is no replacement for a qualified eye care professional, and that the best quality eye care can only happen through a strong doctor-patient relationship. That is why we are proud to join the Alliance in helping to ensure that nothing gets in the way of high quality eye care for patients,” Sightbox CEO Travis Rush said in a statement.
Johnson & Johnson Vision acquired Sightbox in September 2017. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Sightbox is an eye health membership service that partners with the patient and the patient’s doctor for an in-person eye health exam, vision test and contact lens fitting, to ensure the medical device is properly fitted, the prescription is verified and submitted by the doctor, and a safe and ample supply of contact lenses is delivered directly to the patient over the following 12 months.
