Katherine Johnson M.D., F.A.C.S.

A certified Diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology, Dr. Katherine Johnson began her education by graduating with honors from Harvard University. She received her medical degree from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, and completed her specialty training in Ophthalmology at the renowned Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, Florida—an institution which continues to be ranked the #1 eye hospital and #1 residency training program in the nation by US News and World Report and Ophthalmology Times. Dr. Johnson has established herself as a highly motivated and caring physician, dedicating six months to treating patients in rural Mexico, and additionally working with the Seva Foundation to perform cataract surgery in rural Nepal. In 2013, Dr. Johnson co-founded the Prevention of Global Blindness Fellowship and the international non-profit Gift of Sight, a platform designed to further assist the cause of treating preventable blindness across the globe. Dr. Johnson has been accepted as a Fellow into the American College of Surgeons, and has received the Visionary Award for her tireless dedication to the cause of treating and curing preventable blindness around the world. She has also been named one of Alaska’s Top Forty Under Forty, and most recently, has immersed herself into the formation of a new non-profit called KarmaCare—a unique non-profit designed to help patients afford their healthcare by becoming a meaningful volunteer in their community.
