Dr. Richard Johnston graduated from medical school at the University of Toronto
where he also completed his ophthalmology residency training. He pursued a
fellowship in Diseases and Surgery of the Retina and Vitreous at the University of
Southern California/Doheny Eye Institute.
Dr. Johnston was recruited to the University of Minnesota to join their retina faculty
where he was on staff full time for three years. He then branched out into private
practice in Edina, Minnesota, but continued as an adjunct Assistant Professor. He is
actively involved in resident teaching and training the University Vitreo-Retinal

or replacing intra ocular lenses that have dislocated into the posterior segment. In
his private practice, he manages most retinal conditions with an emphasis on
macular degeneration, macular holes, macular puckers, and diabetes.
In his free time, Dr. Johnston loves to spend time with his wife, Sue, and two
children, Annie and Margie. His interests include travel, golf, skiing, and quality
time at home.
