J&J Pinewood Institute marks milestone

Johnson & Johnson Vision Care’s UK institute has welcomed 10,000 delegates since opening in 2009

Contact lens manufacturer Johnson & Johnson Vision Care has welcomed its 10,000th delegate to its UK education institute since opening its doors in early 2009. 

Based in Pinewood, Berkshire, the milestone was celebrated during a recent Presbyopia and its management with contact lenses course at the Vision Care Institute. 

The institute runs a range of educational courses for practitioners at all stages of their careers. The courses are designed to improve the abilities of eye care professionals and in turn enhance patient satisfaction when wearing contact lenses.

Speaking about the milestone, manager of the Vision Care Institute, Sheetal Patel, commented: “It is wonderful to be able to celebrate an occasion such as this, where we can be proud that so many eye care professionals have chosen us to be a part of their professional development and see the benefit we can bring to them and the patients they serve.”

She continued: “We look forward to continuing this relationship with all who have attended so far and welcome the many still to come. The Vision Care Institute is a true realisation of the commitment of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care to partner with, and inspire, eye care professionals, and we are keen that our expanding course portfolio continues to embrace the future educational needs of eye care professionals for the benefit of patients.”
