Highly recommend Dr Johnston and her practice after being a patient for over 15 years. Just had cataract surgery and I am extremely satisfied with the overall care from Dr Johnston and her office technicians and other staff.

I would like to give a big "THANK YOU" to Dr. Carol Johnston and her team. I was selected for their Mission Cateract program. From the time I walked through their door I was greeted by friendly, professional, dedicated and competent staff. My eye exam was very thorough and done with very modern equipment. I can now see better than ever!! What a beautiful gift to have been given. I have been truly blessed!!
