Johnson & Johnson Vision*, a global leader in eye health and part of Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies**, today announced the launch of the ACUVUE® 21 Day Challenge, a new breakthrough behaviour change programme designed to enhance new patients’ experience with contact lenses from the first fit to successful ongoing use.

Starting from the moment patients sign up for a contact lens trial, the ACUVUE® 21 Day Challenge delivers a range of content and tips direct to their inbox over a three-week period, guiding them from the comfort of their own home and where they may need a little extra support to get started.

“We are very excited to be launching the ACUVUE® 21 Day Challenge,” said Jakob Sveen, Managing Director Northern Europe and General Manager UK & Ireland, Johnson & Johnson Vision. “The purpose of the programme is to extend the positive experience patients have with their optician by providing support after they leave the practice, improving the likelihood that they build confidence in contact lenses and complete their trial. For eye care practitioners, the hope is that we help reduce patient drop-outs and build long-term loyalty.”

The ACUVUE® 21 Day Challenge was inspired in part by the concept that it takes time to form a new habit.

ACUVUE® Brand Ambassador Katarina Johnson-Thompson, World Champion Heptathlete agrees: “For me, the key thing to success for most things in life is the combination of motivation, perseverance and support. That’s the great thing about the ACUVUE® 21 Day Challenge. Participants will have help and guidance throughout the first 21 days, and access to top tips when you need them.”

 
 

Patients can sign up for the 21 Day Challenge on the ACUVUE® website when they start a new trial with ACUVUE® brand contact lenses. By signing up for the Challenge, patients can also enter for a chance to win a year’s supply of free contact lenses.****

Johnson & Johnson Vision is launching the ACUVUE® 21 Day Challenge with eye care practitioners throughout the UK as practices expand their services and patient appointments, in line with UK regulatory guidance. A range of resources have been developed to help bring the programme to life in practice, including a digital toolkit and e-learning training modules for staff.
