    • Thanks to you , Dr. Johnston, I can see like an eagle. I can see street signs, I can see the stars, I can see everything.  Cataract surgery is the  best thing I have done in years, and it was so easy.  Thank you for making it such a comfortable, relaxed, no-stress procedure.  Many of my friends have asked me about the surgery and I tell tem “there’s nothing to it….all you need is Dr. Johnston!”  I have been coming to your office for years and I just want to thank Susan J. and all of your staff for being so nice and friendly, helpful and caring.  I also appreciate the way you schedule your patients so that everything runs on time and there is very little waiting!  Again, thank you Dr Johnston for  “giving me my eyes back”.

    • “I love my eye sight since I’ve had laser eye surgery. I would definitely do it again. It improved my sight tremendously. I love not having to worry about wearing contacts or glasses. I would recommend it to anyone.”

    • I have worn glasses since 3rd grade and always have been extremely near sighted. As this past year has gone by I discovered that I needed cataract surgery in both eyes. When I went in for my exam, the procedure was explained very professionally and meticulous to every detail of the procedure. The cataract surgeries were done a week apart and the procedure was very painless and comfortable. I was able to go out to breakfast afterward and enjoyed a day in the recliner resting comfortably.

      Dr. Johnston came in before the surgery and took the time to explain every detail including what would be done before, during and after. This is rare these days that a physician takes the time to make sure the patient understands about any surgery. Both Dr. Johnston?s have a fantastic staff who makes you feel warm and welcomed with every visit . Both physicians make sure you are treated as family and that your visit outcome is a good one.

      As being a very busy professional woman, not having to wait more than 5 minutes for a office visit has been a plus for me. When I returned for my final visit, I am now able to see 20/20 and can pass my drivers license with the vision I am now experiencing after cataract surgery. Without glasses now, I have received many compliments on my eyes and that I look younger without such thick glasses. That was a plus I was not expecting!

      What a wonderful experience this has been and I could not have asked for a better medical practice to go on this journey with! Thank you all very much for making this experience such a pleasant one.
