Johnson & Johnson Vision Care and U.S. Soccer Federation team up to give

U.S. athletes a performance edge with better vision

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc., manufacturer and marketer of ACUVUE(R) Brand Contact Lenses, today announced it is an official sponsor of the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF), the national governing body for the sport of soccer in the United States.

Under terms of the agreement, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care will sponsor the U.S. Men's National Team, the U.S. Women's National Team and the U.S. Youth National Teams in 2008. In addition, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care will provide national team members with ACUVUE(R) Contact Lenses -- the official lens of the U.S. National Teams -- when an eye exam determines that a corrective ACUVUE contact lens is right for them.

Through the USSF sponsorship, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care will educate athletes and fans about the important role vision plays in sports performance. The outreach will also extend beyond sports by showing the benefits of better vision in other aspects of daily life, such as driving, working on a computer, or in the classroom.

U.S. Women's National Team member Heather O'Reilly will play a leading role in the efforts to educate athletes and other performance-minded individuals by sharing her personal story about the valuable role of vision in life.

"I didn't realize how much my bad eyesight was affecting me on the field until an eye exam revealed that my vision was less than it should be," said O'Reilly. "With proper vision correction, I've noticed a change in my game. I can actually see the spin of the ball, which helps me anticipate where it's heading and makes my shots and passes more precise."

"Good vision is critical to achievement in athletics and life," said Gigi Garcia, head athletic trainer for the Women's National Team. "While training and practice are important to hone
