Mercy Hospital Eyecare

Since 1986

One of the longest tenured Ophthalmology groups at Mercy Hospital, we have been located In The Physicians Tower since 1986.  The sisters of Mercy personally invited Dr Jay C. Johnston to the Mercy Hospital Campus in 1986 and for 2 decades he operated two offices, one in downtown Oklahoma City and the second at Mercy Hospital.  Since 1986 we have forged many great relationships with Mercy Physicians around Oklahoma City and the surrounding areas.  We take great pride in caring for the many patients of the Mercy Hospital System.
