Only two months after raising a $2.4 million funding round, Sightbox has been acquired.

The Portland-based startup just sold to healthcare giant Johnson & Johnson and its Vision Care operating company. Terms of the deal were not disclosed; Sightbox will continue operating as a separate business.

Founded in 2015 by CEO Travis Rush, Sightbox sells contact lenses with a membership model that charges users $39 each month for an annual eye appointment and contact lens fitting, along with a 12-month supply of contact lenses of their choice. The monthly membership fee is the same price regardless of what kind of contacts a member orders, or where they get their eye exam. The company also books appointments and fills prescriptions for members.
