Our Family Caring for your Family...Since 1946


Over the past five decades, Johnson Family Eyecare, has evolved into the state of the art optometric eyecare center in western Pennsylvaina. While never losing touch with the people who helped us get there, our patients.


Since then the practice has gone through several changes. The largest of which was our move to our current office at 600 Ligonier Street in Latrobe, PA. This allowed for expansion and modernization of the services rendered to our patients. Our long history in Latrobe attests to the one-on-one personal care each individual patient receives.
