bissell-sizedAs a high school student, Dr. John Bissell always knew he wanted to be an optometrist.  He job shadowed under Dr. Roger Johnson and learned first-hand what owning your own practice meant.   In April 2010, Dr. Bissell had an opportunity to purchase his first practice in Bakerstown.

During Dr. Bissell’s early years in private practice, Dr. Johnson continued to serve as a mentor.  Bissell Eye Care has quickly grown over the past four years to become a premiere eye care center serving the northern Pittsburgh suburbs.

The time has come for Dr. Johnson to retire and the mentor is passing the torch to the mentee as Dr. Bissell expands his practice.  Dr. Bissell has purchased Dr. Johnson’s practice and is now practicing out of both Bakerstown and Natrona Heights office located at 1629 Union Ave, Natrona Heights, PA 15065, phone (724) 226-0444.

Dr. Johnson will continue to see patients a couple of days a week in the Natrona Heights office until he helps Dr. Bissell with the transition of the practice.  Patients will receive the same great service that both doctors have delivered over the years.  We look forward to serving the northern Pittsburgh suburbs and now the Alle-Kiski Valley for years to come.
