From Gary Esterow, Senior Director, Public Relations, VISTAKON® Division of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc.
Research shows that many people think that seeing well translates to good eye health. As a result, they often don’t see an eye care professional regularly or take the necessary steps to protect their eyes. To address this issue, in June, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. launched Healthy VisionTM with Dr. Val Jones, a Blog Talk Radio program devoted to educating and improving people’s eye health. Dr. Val, who hosts the show, is the, CEO of Better Health, LLC, a network of popular health bloggers. She also writes the well-known “Dr. Val and the Voice of Reason” blog, which won The Best New Medical Blog award in 2007. Dr. Jones, (who, in the interest of full disclosure, is a paid consultant for VISTAKON® Division of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc.) says that even health care professionals have a lot to learn when it comes to eye health, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to hear directly from Dr. Val about what we’re doing.
From Dr. Val Jones:
I love being a doctor primarily because there’s never a dull moment in medicine.
