What Our Patients Are Saying

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 first started wearing glasses when I turned 40 years old. At that time, I just needed them for reading but quickly progressed to the point that I had to wear them full time for distance and close work.  When Iwas diagnosed with cataracts, Dr Johnston informed me of an option for intraocular lenses that could totally eliminate the need for wearing glasses.  The lenses, Restor, were well worth the additional cost as I have had them for over 5 years and my vision is like I was 30 again.  They have more then paid for themselves as it has saved on the expense of prescription glasses which every time I changed cost me over 1000.00.  I would highly recommend this option to anyone who has to have cataract surgery.

My cataract surgery was performed several years ago. The procedure went perfectly, and the results were spectacular! I am able to see without glasses for the first time since I was seven years old. I am always so excited for my friends when I learn that they have cataracts. Cataract surgery is an opportunity that changes lives for the better. I’m so grateful to Dr. Jay Johnston.

” I have worn glasses all my life. I was so tired of keeping up with glasses and contacts. I made the decision to have laser eye surgery and have never regretted it. The procedure was quick and results were instant. Having clear vision has changed my life. Its the little things like seeing the alarm clock at night and going swimming without my contacts. I would do it again without hestitation and recommend it to all my friends.”

“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 was very pleased with the mannerism, attentiveness and professionalism the young lady (Tech) that initially saw me before Dr. Carter Johnston. She was very informative and truly kind. She made my visit very pleasant. And am always very pleased with Dr. Johnston’s care and manner.

Being informed that I needed cataract surgery on both eyes was very threatening to me. Suddenly, I was confronted with a procedure that sounded “really scary” – “eye surgery”.

However; I was amazed and delighted to find that Dr. Jay Johnston and his wonderful staff had already thought of everything. They took over and guided me through the process. It was entirely “hassle free”. There was really no pain and very minimal recovery. Best of all—now I can really SEE!

My vision is a wonderful gift and I am very grateful.

Dr Johnston is amazing. He is always patient, explains everything, optimistic and encouraging. He remembers not just the medical details of my previous visits but also what we visit about regarding family. He is very sharp and keeps up on modern techniques. I only wish he were my primary physician too because I know I would never leave feeling like I had no answers. He is thorough and actually listens. His ladies in the office also are great. Not only would I recommend his office in the future but I already have recommended him to a couple of coworkers.

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.

My name is Jacque Massad and I have been a longtime patient of Dr. Jay Johnston. In September of 2010, after a bit of hesitation, yet at the urging of Dr. Johnston, I had cataract surgery in both eyes. The surgeries were performed a week apart and my experience was wonderful. 

Dr. Johnston was very thorough in his care, both pre and post op. He explained everything he was going to do and what I would experience in great detail and made sure that I understood and was comfortable with everything prior to and after the surgeries. Of course I knew that I was in good hands. My recuperation went well and just as he explained and my vision is distinctively improved.
I have told several friends and family members about the wonderful care I received from Dr. Johnston and have recommended him to many for this surgery and for just general eye care.

One thing I always tell others and that I particularly like about Dr. Johnston is his wonderful bedside manner. He is cordial and treats me like a friend, not just a patient.

I have a tremendous amount of trust and confidence in Dr. Johnston and am always pleased and comfortable with the time and care he provides.

I’ve gone to Dr Jay Johnston for about 20 years, and I can’t imagine going anywhere else. The office staff is well trained, and everyone is friendly. When it comes to picking your frames and getting your new lenses, simply step next door for the best.

Dr Johnston is polite and obviously very knowledgeable, helpful and patient. Never seems to be in a hurry. And always acts like his priority is making sure his patients are satisfied.

Khristian K

The whole staff is very professional, and yet approachable. Carter is a delight! My husband and I have been going there for a number of years and never have to wait any period of time, and are always pleased with how we are treated.

Joy R

Dr. Johnston is knowledgeable, responsive to patient questions, and when he’s attending to you he makes you feel comfortable and comforted. Though he’s very obviously busy judging from his waiting room, he respects your appointment time and I never feel rushed.

Ricki S

No words can describe the fine care and comfortable professionalism that Dr. Johnston and his wonderful staff provide before, during, and after an eye procedure. I would also like to say that if a follow up requiring another specialized physician is required both he and his staff go above and beyond to assist in making prompt coordination to get your eye care needs attended.

Michael M

I was seem promptly for my appointment. The nurse doing the initial assessment was very pleasant and professional. Dr. Johnston’s examination was comprehensive and he took time to explain and inform me clearly of the issues I was having and needed to be aware.

Steve R

I have been seeing Dr.Carter Johnston for years. I have always been impressed with his thoroughness in all the testing he does to help me keep my eyesight from having glaucoma. My husband does not get any of this attention from his optometrist and will be coming to see Dr. Carter in the near future. I like Carter as a person and always feel comfortable asking questions and making comments. Only change I would like in our relationship is to request not to be reminded about the family eye glass store.

His technicians are professional and friendly.

The office staff always treat me with respect. They have even been extra efficient and returned several co-pays. They are friendly; always helping with the solution when I call for one.

Dr.Jay Johnston has performed several surgeries. He was very friendly and easily communicated with me and my husband. He was super sweet and made sure I was OK.
