I have had cataract surgery on both eyes in the last 6 months and Dr. Johnson always makes himself available if there are any questions or concerns. I have been very happy with the results and his skills as a Doctor of Opthamology.

My wife and I have been under Dr. Johnson's care for many years that included serious eye issues. We could not ask for better care. I anticipate eye surgery in the next six months and would not consider going to any one else.

I have several medical issues, and I see a lot of doctors, so you can believe me when I say Dr. Johnson and his staff are the best. The staff seem to have a wonderful rapport with each other and with Dr. Johnson's patients. Dr. J's bedside manner is amazing, he's very professional and he has a sense of humor; a wonderful plus in any doctor. If you are looking for an eye doctor, he's the best.

Elliston, VA |
I had complicated (post sub capsular cataract from years of steroids) cataract surgery two years ago with Dr. Johnson. Since I had previously had LASIK surgery, my case was not completely predictable. Dr. Johnson and his entire team were fantastic. Almost two years later, I just had my yearly exam and I am seeing 20/20. As usual EVERYONE in Dr. Johnson's practice was friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. I am grateful for their continued care.
