Sarah C. Johle, O.D.
Dr. Sarah Johle, a therapeutic optometrist and optometric glaucoma specialist, was born and raised in Central Texas. Her parents are both educators: her father a high school coach, currently at Temple High School, and her mother a high school English teacher at Crawford High School where Dr. Johle graduated as Valedictorian.
Dr. Johle followed in the footsteps of her parents, attending Texas A&M University where she pursued a degree in Nutritional Sciences, changing majors after her younger brother was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Dr. Johle went on to receive her Bachelor of Science degree graduating Cum Laude.
In 2004 Dr. Johle married her husband Aaron Johle, a graduate of Thrall High School and Texas A&M Univeristy, where the two met. Soon after marrying the couple moved to Houston, TX, so Dr. Johle could pursue her post-graduate studies in optometry. While attending the University of Houston College of Optometry, Dr. Johle was very active, serving as an officer in both the American Optometric Student Association and the Fellowship of Christian Optometrists. During her final year of school, Dr. Johle completed externships at two very successful private practices in the Austin area. During these rotations she received extensive training in contact lens fitting, including special cases, pre- and post-operative LASIK management, and the treatment of ocular diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, dry eye, and ocular allergies. Dr. Johle graduated from UHCO with honors as a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa Optometric Honor Society.
Dr. Johle looks forward to caring for the vision and health needs of the citizens of Hutto and the surrounding communities. Because of her undergraduate training, Dr. Johle has a passion for caring not only for the health of the eyes but also for the overall health of her patients. She truly understands the role the eyes play in the diagnosis of many major health conditions. Dr. Johle and her husband are very excited to be back in Central Texas, away from the hustle and bustle of the big city and surrounded by family and friends. She hopes to see you soon at your next appointment.
In addition to her professional activities, she is a member of the American Optometric Association and the Texas Optometric Association, Dr. Johle enjoys watching and participating in sports, especially football, crafting, interior design, traveling, spending time with her husband and two boys, Wyatt (6) and Olsen (4).
