Boerne Vision Center hopes that you had a wonderful holiday and a happy and healthy New Year! This has been our best year yet, with the most patients served and a growing family of staff. 6 month old Baby Dante enjoyed his first Christmas with his mama, Dr. Johnson, and is bringing in the New Year with more rolls.

The global initiative, Vision 2020: The Right to Sight, established by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness, has created valuable and effective collaborations of organisations involved in a wide range of eye care and community healthcare activities aimed at the elimination of avoidable blindness and impaired vision.

Dr. Johnson and her staff are joining the cause and continue to participate in community activities to provide eye care to all!

In 2019, Boerne Vision Center, has given back more than ever before to the Hill country and San Antonio communities. Our New Years resolution is to continue to improve to better serve our patients!
