At Johnson & Johnson Vision – the makers of ACUVUE® contact lenses – our commitment to caring is guided by Our Credo, a set of beliefs shared across the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies. This doctrine guides our actions and decisions as we endeavor to be a responsible corporate citizen, a respectful employer, and considerate, contributing members of the communities in which we live and work.
We believe our first responsibility is to the doctors, nurses and patients, to mothers and fathers and all others who use our products and services. In meeting their needs everything we do must be of high quality. We must constantly strive to reduce our costs in order to maintain reasonable prices.
Customers’ orders must be serviced promptly and accurately. Our suppliers and distributors must have an opportunity to make a fair profit.
We are responsible to our employees, the men and women who work with us throughout the world. Everyone must be considered as an individual. We must respect their dignity and recognize their merit. They must have a sense of security in their jobs. Compensation must be fair and adequate, and working conditions clean, orderly, and safe. We must be mindful of ways to help our employees fulfill their family responsibilities. Employees must feel free to make suggestions and complaints. There must be equal opportunity for employment, development, and advancement for those qualified. We must provide competent management, and their actions must be just and ethical.
We are responsible to the communities in which we live and work and to the world community as well. We must be good citizens who support good works and charities and bear our fair share of taxes. We must encourage civic improvements and better health and education. We must maintain in good order the property we are privileged to use, protecting the environment and natural resources.
Our final responsibility is to our stockholders. Business must make a sound profit. We must experiment with new ideas. Research must be carried on, innovative programs developed and mistakes paid for. New equipment must be purchased, new facilities provided and new products launched. Reserves must be created to provide for adverse times. When we operate according to these principles, the stockholders should realize a fair return.
The Health Care Alliance for Patient Safety
In 2018, Johnson & Johnson Vision joined the Health Care Alliance for Patient Safety ("the Alliance") as a leadership and charter member alongside the American Optometric Association. With a central goal of advocating for policy solutions that advance eye health, the Alliance includes leading eye health advocates, innovators, and trusted health experts from the eye care community who are united by a commitment to ensuring quality care and improving patient outcomes.
The Alliance's vision of ensuring every American has access to safe and effective health care with proper professional oversight is guided by five key principles, shared below by Peter Menziuso, President, North America, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc.
In partnership with the Alliance and through our continued efforts alongside patients, policy makers and regulators, Johnson & Johnson Vision looks forward to promoting the importance of eye health and serving as an valued voice for transparent and factual information on issues ranging from new technology and eye health products to patient safety.

"We're proud to join the Health Care Alliance for Patient Safety to promote key eye health issues, and provide patients with the latest information they need to safeguard their health. Through the Alliance, we hope to bring attention to the untreated and, in some cases, undiagnosed vision conditions affecting millions of Americans today-while also ensuring that eye health is a priority in our national health agenda."
