Jeffery Johnson, O.D.

High School before moving on to undergraduate studies in Biology and Physical Sciences at the University of Central Arkansas. In addition to academics, Dr. Johnson was also a National Champion in competitive cheerleading for the university in 2002 and a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, which took part in many local and national charitable causes. These included work for Alzheimer’s research and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, among others. During his later undergraduate years, Dr. Johnson was also a founding member and the first president of the university’s first Pre-Optometry club.

Upon graduation from the University of Central Arkansas, Dr. Johnson began his optometric studies at the University of Missouri – St. Louis, where he met fellow OPMT optometric physician, Dr. Derek Peveler. While there, he did several clinical externships in and around the St. Louis/Eastern Illinois area where he developed a strong interest in ocular disease and contact lenses while working with the John Cochran VA, O’Donnell Eye Institute and the famed Koetting Associates private contact lens practice.

Dr. Johnson has had extensive experience in many clinical settings including retail optometry with America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses in Illinois, working alongside ophthalmologists in central Arkansas’ largest Cataract/LASIK/Oculoplastics practice at McFarland Eye Care, and is now focused on serving patients here in Tennessee by providing full-scope private practice optometry here with Optometric Physicians of Middle Tennessee.

Dr. Johnson loves to provide exceptional eye care to patients in our Portland and Hendersonville locations.

In June of 2019, Dr. Johnson and his family moved from Little Rock, AR to Gallatin, TN to be a part of the ever-growing OPMT practice. He is married to his beautiful wife, Courtney, and they have a precious young daughter, Addison Blair. They have all come to love the state of Tennessee and the greater Nashville area especially, but remain loyal Razorback fans! However, they do cheer for both the Titans and the Preds!
