PASSIONATE ABOUT PATIENT CARE

“Every day for more than 20 years I have been excited about seeing my patients. My favorite part of the exam is when I have the opportunity to talk with the patient about what is going on with their eyes. Teaching you about your eyes allows you to take part in your health care and allows us to work together to meet your visual needs. I can’t tell you how many patients have said ‘this is the first time that has ever been explained to me, it makes sense now.’ I could not imagine caring for my patients without explaining what is going on and how we can fix it.”

BACKGROUND

Dr. Johnson grew up in Craig, Colorado before attending Boise State University. Dr. Johnson continued his education at Pacific University, College of Optometry where he earned his Doctor of Optometry degree. 

EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING

Dr. Johnson has been part of the Boise community since 1991, where he began practice as a comprehensive optometrist, specializing in primary care optometry, refractive surgery and ocular disease.

Over the course of his career, in addition to providing medical-based eye exams, Dr. Johnson has worked alongside several refractive surgeons – ophthalmologists specializing in LASIK and PRK – to co-manage complex surgical cases. In addition to refractive surgery, Dr. Johnson enjoys providing care to patients with ocular disease, double vision, and those requiring urgent care for eye infections or minor emergencies.

PERSONAL

Dr. Johnson returned to Boise following graduation from Pacific University, College of Optometry. He enjoys the Boise climate for his year-round outdoor activities. When the snow flies you are likely to spot Dr. Johnson on the ski hill. As the weather warms you will find him cycling along the greenbelt and enjoying the view of the Boise River. To unwind Dr. Johnson heads into his yard, where he enjoys caring for his ever growing collection of trees and shrubs.

          Artisan Optics is a local favorite. A source for extraordinary care, personalized service, and known for having a selection of eyewear that can’t be found anywhere else in Idaho.

          We are a second generation family-owned optometry practice and optical boutique – and we want to personally thank you for taking the time to discover our products and services. Since 1991, Artisan Optics has served residents of the Treasure Valley and beyond. Over those years we have become the “go-to” destination for those who crave a different kind of vision care experience.

          A notable difference between Artisan Optics and other optometry offices in Idaho is our doctors. Our optometrists are residency-trained and nationally recognized experts in their fields. This means when you come to Artisan Optics for vision care you can relax; knowing that you will be well cared for by doctors who are industry leaders.

          And wait until you see our eyecatching eyewear selection! We believe you will be delighted with the assortment. We truly have something for everyone. You won’t find our eyeglass frames in other eye doctor’s offices or big box stores. We shun poorly made, generic, mass produced eyeglass frames that don’t stand the test of time. Instead we search the world over to find quality, well-made eyeglass frames; carefully balancing style, comfort, durability, and cost – a true reflection of Idaho values.

          While it is true that choosing the perfect pair of glasses is important – who doesn’t enjoy wearing an eyecatching pair of eyeglass frames? – let’s not underestimate the importance of the lenses. At Artisan Optics we meticulously evaluate technical specifications and carefully select the lens design and material that is best suited to your prescription. Nothing cookie cutter here – from proper frame fit to custom measurements to digitally produced lenses and technologically advanced anti-glare coatings, we can expertly fill any prescription.

          We know you have choices when it comes to vision care, and that’s why we strive to provide the very best vision care experience in the Treasure Valley. We are committed to earning your trust and consider it a privilege to care for you and your family. If you’ve not yet experienced the Artisan Optics difference, we invite you to stop by. We look forward to meeting you and would be delighted to welcome you to Artisan Optics.

          I have been seeing Dr Johnson for a few years, I enjoy our visits and appreciate his efficiency and expertise. My boys have been seeing Dr Kronberg for several years, it’s the only place in the Treasure Valley that I trust for my kids-they are all great. Great staff, nice office and they know how to help kids.

          Dr. Johnson took the time to ex everything going on with my eyes. Very little change from last year’s exam and what to expect going forward.

          I have been going to see Dr. Johnson since the mid-90s. He is a true artist of his craft. He takes care of my eyes as if they were his own. The staff is very professional and they go out of their way to make sure I they provide the best possible solutions. It is always a satisfying experience. I highly recommend Artisan Optics!

          I really enjoyed the professionalism of the entire staff. My eye check was thorough and the doctor was welcoming as well as informative. The glasses are pricey so I opted out purchasing My glasses here. I put off getting an eye exam because I wasn’t sure where to go but Artisan Optics was recommended highly by a family member and I’m glad I went here. I highly recommend this optic office!!!
