Gordon S. Johnson, OD


As a licensed optometrist, Dr. Johnson provides exams, diagnoses, and treatments of all disorders that affect the eye or vision. In addition to training in eye diseases and disorders, Dr. Johnson is also trained in anatomy, biochemistry, and physiology. With this background, Dr. Johnson is trained to recognize a range of health issues; such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes and hypertension.

Dr. Johnson works hard to stay current on the latest advances in eye health and vision care and regularly attends continuing education seminars and advanced training courses. It is because of Dr. Johnson's dedication to continuing education that our Simpsonville patients receive the most modern and progressive vision care available.

In Dr. Johnson's extra time, he loves to spend time with his wife Jana and their three daughters. Graduating from The Ohio State University, you can definitely see him during the football season in some Buckeye clothing around town.
