MORE EYE DOCTORS WEAR ACUVUE DISPOSABLE CONTACT LENSES

 JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- More eye doctors wear ACUVUE(R) Disposable Contact Lenses, manufactured by Johnson & Johnson Vision Products, Inc., than wear any other kind of contact lens, according to a survey of U.S. optometrists and ophthalmologists conducted in October and November of 1992.
 The telephone survey of contact lens wearing optometrists and ophthalmologists revealed that 30 percent of the optometrists and 26 percent of the ophthalmologists questioned were ACUVUE wearers.
 "There isn't a better testament to the superiority of ACUVUE Disposable Contact Lenses than to discover that eye doctors favor them over all other contact lenses for their own vision correction needs," said Craig H. Scott, vice president of product management at Johnson & Johnson Vision Products, Inc.
 The survey sample was a random selection derived from a comprehensive list of 24,000 optometrists and 9,000 ophthalmologists, it was stratified to represent the population of eye doctors in all four regions of the United States.
 "I wear ACUVUE disposable lenses because they give me the best visual acuity and they're the most comfortable of all the lenses I've tried," said Lee Rigel, O.D., from East Lansing, Mich., and ACUVUE wearer for 3 years. "I've had great success with ACUVUE lenses and so have many of my patients."
 ACUVUE lenses are currently the number one selling contact lens in the United States, have been dispensed to more patients in 1991 than any other contact lens. The undisputed leader in the disposable contact lens category, ACUVUE lenses claim almost 70 percent of that market.
