What People Say About Dr. Steven Johnson, MD

About 3 months ago, Dr Johnson performed cataract surgery on both my eyes. I could not be happier with the outcome. Based on his comments, I chose to got with the multifocal lens (Symfony). I now have 20/20 vision in both eyes and can read most print in good light without reading glasses. Mild reading glasses are helpful in low light or with small print. I had no complications and was seeing well on the day following each surgery. His office staff is very friendly and helpful.

I had blurring in the center of my right eye, the cause of which would have no doubt been a challenge for anyone to diagnose. But Dr. Johnson had the right equipment and expertise to discover and effectively treat my problem. I now have normal sight and am very grateful to have been treated with such care and expertise.

Dr, Johnson informed me of all my options with cataract surgery. I had a lot of trust in him doing my surgeries. I wore contacts for 50 years and now I can see without them. What a blessing! I would recommend him to others for cataract surgery.
