Comprehensive Medical Eye and Vision Care
Building Relationships For A Lifetime Of Eye Care. Since 1971.


Our mission is more then comprehensive primary eye care - it is garnering your trust in us and establishing a relationship with you so we can provide you and your families exceptional eye care for your lifetime. As one of the oldest eye care practices in Oklahoma City, we take pride in the fact that patients travel from all corners of the state to continue to visit with us and share stories, while letting us maintain their best possible vision and ocular health.  It makes us proud that we can see grandparents, parents and children in the same family within a week.  We look forward to starting a long term relationship with you and your family.

We offer full scope primary vision and medical eye care.  We consult with many primary care physicians around Oklahoma City helping to diagnose and manage ocular problems related to systemic disease.  We manage many patients with diabetes, macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, dry eye, neuro-ophthalmic disease, rheumatoid disease, thyroid disease  as well as other inflammatory diseases.

Primary eye care includes more then just a “vision” check. It encompasses a complete check of the ocular health from the front to the back of the eye, along with all of the external structures in and around the eye. The eye can often reveal  underlying systemic disease, like hypertension, diabetes, inflammatory disease, and neurologic disease. It is our mission to make sure you are healthy overall, as well as your eyes.

Part of primary care is good vision and we are proud to have one of the premier opticals in Oklahoma City, offering over one thousand unique frames coupled with only the best lenses and coatings. Please see our link above to Physicians Optical.

Ophthalmologist, Dr Jay Johnston,  has been providing surgical eye care to those in and around Oklahoma City for over 40 years.  He is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma School of Medicine and completed his residency in Ophthalmology at OU as well. 

Dr. Carter Johnston, O.D. is a graduate of Colorado College, and Northeastern State Oklahoma College of Optometry. He provides all aspects of primary eye care, from pediatric exams,contact lens fittings to management of ocular disease in older patients.

Dr. Carter also has a large contact lens practice, and has a special interest in dry eye and contact lenses.  He has a large group of keratoconus patients, and gas permeable bifocal patients.  Dr Carter feels the safest lens modality for almost every patient is one-day disposable lenses. One day disposable lenses offer superior comfort for most people, and minimize risk of adverse events, like corneal infection.

We look forward to having you visit our office. We are confident it will be a positve experience.
