Dr. GG was simply amazing!! My daughter had her eye exam by Dr. GG and she took her time explaining everything to my daughter. Very sweet and patient. I highly recommend Dr. GG to anyone and everyone. ❤️❤️❤️

B Lee

Have been seeing Dr. Scott Willeford for years. He is THE BEST!! Concern about your eye health is very important to him! Husband and I make appointment to see him together and our visit is punctual, informative and comfortable. Don't feel rushed in any way. Staff is also friendly and helpful! Would recommend this office anytime!

Chris Altobello

Good frames ! Me and my daughter both see Dr. Williford! Great staff also.(^>^)

Chris Glenn

I brought my 7 and 5 year old boys here and found out what an excellent place Ritz & Johnson is for children. Dr. "GG" and staff, went out of their way to make the kids feel very comfortable. One of my son's needed glasses and the other didn't, which shows me they are honest and are not just trying to sell everyone glasses like the last eye doctor I previously visited. Highly recommend, especially for children.

The staff is pleasant but a little frantic. When calling expect to be on hold for at least 5 min. Place always seems to be busy and while in the lobby the phone seemed to ring nonstop. It is worth the extra hassle has the Docs are very knowledgeable and they do have a great selection of frames.


They may be a little pricey but what is the price for your eyesight? Dr Willeford pretty much saved my eyesight. It took 5 yrs and 3 other eye doctor's before I finally found someone who cared enough to figure it out. B12 deficiency does affect your eyesight!!! I will never go anywhere else. Staff is wonderful!

Kirsten Lee

I have had issues with my eyes my whole life. I started wearing glasses full time a couple years ago and I bought my 2nd pair of glasses here last year and this year I decided to get contacts. Dr Menjivar made my appointments very easy and comfortable to be able to ask any questions needed. I have done a lot of research on the type of eye diagnosis I have and I feel the Dr made it really easy to understand what my options were. I appreciate not only the Dr but the staff as a whole to making my appointment to bringing me to the back and doing the small steps before Dr Menjivar comes in. I would recommend this office to any of my friends and family.

Robin Corsiglia

I have used these eye doctors for over 49 years and always had super service. Today I had a different eye problem and the had two new high tech machines that I had never seen before. They printed out the results and went over all the results. Then the did need to refer me to a specialist who the called and set up an appointment right then. Excellent service and tools to find the problem.

I’ve been using Ritz & Johnson for two years now and will continue going. I have had a few eye emergencies the past two years and have always been able to be seen the same day without issues or long waits. I’ve used both Dr. Glatter-Götz and Dr. Willeford and have had great experiences with them. Both them and there staff have always been friendly, informative and always answer my bucket loads of questions. I would recommend Ritz & Johnson to my friends and family.

Dan Hearn

I was referred to Ritz Johnson by a local optometrist as being the place to go for hard to fit contact lenses. I contacted RJ, had my records sent to the office and scheduled an appointment a couple of weeks out. The day before my exam, I recieved an email asking me to confirm, which I did. I was actually looking forward to having my vision improved. I then drove 70 miles (each way) only to be told that the Dr. had found something else to do and was not in the office. The woman at the front desk told me that someone should have called me since everyone but me knew the Dr wasn't keeping appointments that day. She offered to re schedule, and when I told her it was a fairly long drive, all I got was a lukewarm " Well I'm sorry". In my opinion, unless you're willing to gamble on whether or not a Dr. will be keeping the appointment, look into another, more professional eye care provider.

Tina Carnrite

This is an excellent place for an eye exam and they have the latest in fashion. I see the only female dr and she is super.

Howard Leary

Pleasant people, I felt like everyone genuinely want to help me to see better.

Ashley Brown

Three generations of my family has been going here for over ten years. Highly recommended.

Vincent Clinard

By far the best Eyecare place I’ve ever been to everyone was helpful nice and everybody answered all my questions.The doctor was very Nice and very helpful she explained everything.I would recommend this place to anyone looking for eyecare doctor.

David Fuquay

As first time patients, we were able to get the whole family scheduled for eye exams within one week of our call. The check-in process was smooth and the whole staff was friendly and professional. My appointment began promptly. The exam was thorough and all my questions were answered. They exceeded my expectations from start to finish.


the drs and technicians are professional and caring.

Gabriela Gonzalez

I want to be as honest as I possibly can and I do not want negative comments because this was my personal experience regardless of how many other people have had a wonderful one. I went to Ritz and Johnson mid April and made my purchase through them on 4/29/19. I purchased Ray Ban Havana Glasses and made my decision of how I wanted them to be and look. They stated that my lenses will be there around "10 business days". Around the 15th business day I called and they stated that it usually takes "10-14 days". On 5/17/19, which was my 16th day, I was told that they were ready. I come in and am told that my lenses were ready, but they had to give me temporary frames because the color I ordered had not arrived and that they would arrive approximately 5 more days. On 5/21/19, I received a text message that my frames had arrived. Excitedly, I went in thinking that the hassle of purchasing frames was completely over. Upon waiting, the rep came over and mentioned that the lenses did not fit the frames and that they needed to order new lenses. I just do not see how these people make any profit with all the minor mistakes that they are making. I'm not sure how much longer my new lenses will take or how much longer this problem will persist. Walmart has always been my "Go to" eye doctor and because my insurance did not cover my glasses I decided to go to Ritz. I've never came across this issue before. I am beside myself. When they finally get my order right what will they do with the current glasses I am wearing now? throw them away? toss them aside? what a waste. For all this hassle they should just give me what I ordered and this pair included. I will update my full experience and re-evaluate my review once I receive the glasses I actually purchased.

Valarie Bentum

Excellent experience for children. Dr. Menjivar was so nice with my granddaughter. He has a lot of patience with children. The support staff was awesome too!! I would definitely recommend Ritz & Johnson to my friends and family.

Logan Grantham

By far one of the best places to go in Ocala for eyecare. Dr. Willeford is the best!

Jason White

Jason Ellis

Professional, clean, and prompt.

Monica Beaton

Very professional, our doctor is excellent . They are always on time! Staff is very friendly. All my family goes there, highly recommend them!


Dr. Willeford is the best. I trust him and his team.

Michael Spellman

Dr. GiGi is the absolute best! She takes time to explain all parts of the exam and helps with everyday examples on how to keep our eyes healthy. In fact, the whole team at R&J are very professional and courteous. I wish they sold cars!

Calvin Beau

Exceptional. My glasses are perfect. Dr. Johnson was recommended by my dentist in Ocala. I tried another eyecare facility in The Villages to obtain a prescription with a negative result. Dr. Johnson was wonderful. I give him a 10+

Emilee Mellinger

J Griffey

Great customer service!!

Fay & William Mosley

I've had nothing but excellent, quality service since I first started going to Ritz & Johnson. Everyone is so very friendly and efficient, a clean, comfortable atmosphere, and Lisa and Dr. Menjivar are the greatest!

Charlotte Martin

I had such an amazing experience with Ritz! After an attempt to walk resulted in a scratched eye for my 9 month old, we knew we needed to see an eye doctor pretty quickly. I called the Front Desk and they were so sweet and understanding. Not only did they calm me down by listening and agreeing to work me in that day, they went out of their way to make sure we could be seen as soon as possible. There wasn't a long wait at all and the technician was thorough with our work up. We ended up seeing Dr. Aida Glatter-Gotz who was an absolute pleasure. She was great with my son, extremely meticulous with her exam, and spent so much time explaining what we needed to do to ensure his eye could heal as fast as possible. I will definitely recommend this practice to friends and family, as well as bring my family back again to see their providers. I also found their text appointment reminders super helpful, you can find your appointment forms online so they are prefilled out when you get there, and the entire staff has a friendly-welcoming personality that isn't often found at other offices.

Simon Amir DMD

Went for my first visit there this morning. I have worn contacts for 25 years, and I felt that this exam was the most thorough I have ever had. Dr. Willeford is very personable, the staff I interacted with were all very professional, and I thought the prices were reasonable. This is a private group practice, not a corporate one, and I think that makes a huge difference. It seemed like they used the latest tech in comparison to other places I've previously been to. I was also impressed that they had the correct contact lenses in stock for me to try immediately (again, something I have never had before as I have very strong astigmatism). Dr. Willeford regularly lectures to other professionals, and I met him at a lecture he was giving to a local group of dentists on eye health. This guy definitely knows his stuff and I appreciate that he takes the time to educate the community on eye health- something he is obviously very passionate about. Dr. Willeford took the time to talk to me, and to double and triple check that I had the absolutely best prescription match for my eyes- nobody has ever done that before. Thanks Dr. Willeford!

I love Dr. G, she is super relatable and very easy going. Any question or concern you may have she answer them. This is my second year with them. Friendly staff.

Mark Nuetzi

Have been using Ritz and Johnson for my eye wellness for probably close to the last 10 years or more. Effective eye exams using the most modern equipment and technology have helped keep my vision from deteriorating beyond normal age related issues. Dr. Wileford and his staff always current with their professional standards, certifications and handle themselves with true professional manners. Exams are scheduled promptly and there is very little wait when you do arrive. Thanks for your high quality care and patient concern. Mark Nuetzi

sarah hogue

The best eye glass and Dr ever my daughter is 8 and her prescription for her glasses is perfect for her and she loves the eye Dr and the staff are great to.I would recomend him to anyone.

Barbara Gilbert

I have to choose my eye care professionals very carefully as my remaining eyesight is in jeopardy. Having lost sight in one eye, and needing monthly treatment in the other, something as simple as needing new glasses isn’t simple at all. I need all the help I can get. I chose Ritz Johnson on the recommendations of others, and I wasn’t disappointed. I found Dr. Menjivar and his assistant Lisa to be warm and very thorough in assessing my needs. I was anxious, but they put me at ease, and I look forward to a long association with them. I don’t have my new glasses yet, but I expect they’ll be perfect, but if not, I feel sure they will work with me to resolve any issues. I like this center very much.

Always a pleasurable staff that cares. Been a patient there since 2002 I think.

Patti Kiser

Dr. Willeford nailed my Rx twice...Love Ritz & Johnson...Very Professional.

Unknown User

They offer a huge selection of glasses in their optical store. Very knowledgable and personable doctors. I'm dissappointed that Dr. Chaney is no longer with them.

Charley Misura

Ritz Johnson saw me this morning for an Emergency visit. The visit was only $80. I don't know why I expected $300- $400. I have a corneal abrasion right below my pupil. He prescribed me medicine that was $246. He sent me to the pharmacy with a "discount card", and it came to $60 even. So for a total of $140 I was seen and got my meds. Very quick service and very very nice doctor who genuinely seemed concerned.

Amy Babbitt

I took my 4 year old son to get his first eye exam and I could not have been more pleased with the experience. All of the employees are so patient and pleasant and I was impressed at how kid-friendly the whole place was! I was really nervous, not knowing what to expect, but had nothing to worry about! Very good, professional experience

qb jazz

Best in Marion County!

Hollie Cunningham

Dr. G.G. was friendly and thorough. As a Mother I truly appreciate how much she cares for my children!

Larry Novak

I have now lived in 4 different cities with my family, 3 of them in Florida. Ritz and Johnson has been hands down, the best in service and providing eye care to us. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Hobby Bobby

Way too over price frames and sunglasses. I bought a sillohuet frame for my prescription glasses worth $350.00 which is just $220 online. And you better check your bill. They billed me twice for copay. Good thing I read all charges.

North Pointe Homes Gainesville, Fl

Been coming to Ritz and Johnson Eye Care for Many Years. Always very satisfied. Thank You Dr. Johnson

Maria Gil

I have been a patient of Dr. Willeford for quite a few years now and I am very pleased with his services. He always takes the time to care for my needs and is very professional. I always recommend him

Walter Coleman

I had a problem with my right eye as long as ten years ago that no matter what test was done no one could tell me what the problem was caused by. This doctor listen and performed a simple test ($60) that took a picture of the inside of my eyes and he was able to identify the cause and make recommendations. I paid over $750 ten years ago and never got an answer . I will go back to this doctor every time

Leo Aguila

JB Lourenco

Cheryl McKellar

Excellent service! Prompt, courteous, and professional from front desk to exam room.

Eric Cummings

Thanks Ritz and Johnson for the great eye care! Dr. Willeford is the best


Learn more in the first visit at R&J about contacts and glasses than I did with my previous optometrist which I been going to since Elementary School. There is a wide selection of frame brands but I wish there was more styles available from each brand they sell.

Jerri King

Suzette Harris

I was really impressed with Dr.Willeford. He made me feel comfortable on my first visit and my glasses are perfect. I took my son and my husband and they too received the excellent service as I did

Craig Emerson

Michael Studer

My visit today was A+!!! The staff was very helpful and professional. Dr. Willeford was very thorough and friendly! I definitely recommend them to all!!

Jay Vertuno

I've been a patient at Ritz/Johnson for several years (over 15). The staff may change but the quality and service continues to increase. They always make me feel like I'm one of the family. Love the service but the quality of eye care is really why I go and keep coming back. 11/27/18 . . . . . I've been going to Ritz & Johnson for almost two decades and I'm amazed each visit how they keep up with all the changes in technology. Today's visit was amazing. Thank you Dr. "G" (Glatter-Gotz) for your great explanations and treatment plan. Looking forward to seeing you again in 2019!

April Torrey

Great staff. Very educational doctors. Explained everything i needed to understand what my eyes were doing and how it was going to be corrected.

Regina Marie

Mahogany Brown

Called in (bc of: burning dry eyes)with no appointment and without being an active patient..was told to come right away, was seen with in 5 min of me arriving! Dr G G was the best! Would def recommend!!

Irene Collins

Everyone was so pleasant when i was therr for my exam. Dr. Gigi was do nice. She took time to answer my questions and to also give me advise on other matters which can affect sight. I would highly recommend this and the vision center and the Drs who work there.

Cecelia Deleon

Office staff is rude

samuel nakamura

The best Drs in Ocala but the worst staff service at least in my case never called me to tell me that the lenses were ready and it was twice they do nothing to help.

Eric Goodmanson

Elida Stendal

The Ritz & Johnson staff is so kind, and very helpful. Dr. GG was very sweet and extremely thorough, she does a wonderful job!


Long term patient of Dr Johnson but switched to Dr GiGi as Dr Johnson has decreased his hours. I have seen Dr GiGi several times now and she's wonderful. Not only extremely competent but immediately felt at ease with her! My son's also go to Dr Johnson but I advised them if they couldn't get appointments with his decrease in hours to request Dr GiGi!

Todd Jones

I’ve gone to Dr. Johnson for almost 45 years while dealing with a lazy eye. When he announced he was retiring I felt vey leery about trusting someone else with my vision. Today I met with Dr. Aida Glatter-Götz and she was GREAT. She was very nice, while very professional. She really took her time to explain everything that was going on with my eyes so now my concerns are gone. Hopefully she will be my Dr. for the next 45 years

Sherry Street

Always have a great experience with these Drs. I see Dr Wiliford and he is awesome he really cares about you Number One Eye doctor s in my book. Thank you for keeping my eyes healthy.

Vince Orlando

Excellent service! We have been seeing Dr. Cheney for over 12 years now and we absolutely would recommend this office. Unfortunately, Dr. Cheney will be retiring this week and we will have to see another doctor. However, the customer service is fantastic and the frame selection makes it easy to find something that works for you. We wish you the very best in retirement Dr. Cheney!!

Dee Hays

Says open till 5pm but they lock door early so people with jobs have to take time off work in the middle of the day to get to them. If you want to close at 430, say that on your hours.


I was a walk in at Ritz and Johnson recently, and the staff made me feel welcomed and they were so nice. Dr. Menjivar was thorough and profesprofessional. He answered all of my questions and I had no doubts about my choice of eye wear or the quality of care. I was fitted and out the door in a very timely manner, all without feeling rushed. This is a great group of people, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking . Yes, even to my friends and family.

Annie Cannon

Weldon Liberatore

Dr. G was very caring and took great care of my daughter! We will definitely be going back.

Todd Swearingen

Love the people at this practice! Highly professional in every aspect of the exam through the optical. Best in Ocala!

Sallie Augustine

I have been looked after by Dr Willeford for at least 18 years ( I can’t remember exactly! ). I have been extremely satisfied, so much so, that my whole family goes to him too. Thank you Dr Willeford for our eye health!

Lauren Rogers

Dr Johnson was extremely thorough. He explained everything that he was going to do, his findings, and his recommended plan of care. He included me in the plan asking what my wishes were and explained advantages and disadvantages to both. The office staff is very friendly! Always call my children by their name and are never aggravated when we come frequently for adjustments. I would highly recommend this office!

Julie Kesselring

The staff at Ritz and Johnson is always very efficient. Appointments are usually right on time, so you are not wasting time sitting in the waiting room. Dr Scott Willeford is wonderful. Fast but thorough and very caring. Treats you like a friend.

Larry McCabe

Doctors and staff are excellent. Best in surrounding area.

Clydette Kearney

I only gave a one star because they answered the phone. I will never go back to them and will be looking for another eye doctor.

Robin Crego

Dr. Menjivar's staff fought/worked with my insurance company to get me taken care of. Been w the same employer for years, but apparently this year the vision portion of our insurance was changed, no one was notified. So when I came to my appointment I found out I was out of network. Having had a cornea transplant years ago, my eyes are not easy to fit with contacts. I drive to Ocala because of how awesome Dr. Menjavar is with specialty lenses and fitting them.

Hollie Monroe

Newly renovated office. Dr is wonderful, very thorough and personable. Great selection of eyewear and staff is friendly and helpful every step of the way.

Janelle Jackson

Always very friendly staff and GG is absolutely awesome! She’s very thorough and shows true concern for my and my daughter’s eye health!

Smyth Roberts

Worked me in quickly for an emergency visit...Dr. Gigi rocks!

Patti Turner

Made same day appt as a new patient. I was a little surprised to get an appt so soon and so easily. Dr G-G saw me and I was very pleased. What a beautiful person overall; she has a way of making you feel as beautiful is she is on the outside. They do have a fairly large selection of glasses available, although I've seen larger, but felt the selection was comparable to cost and quality of the larger chain stores. I will go back, and will recommend to others.

Tyrone Davis

I've used few eye care centers over the years in Ocal and by far Ritz Johson is the best all around care in the area. The one thing this team really embraces is EYE and Customer care during and after the deal is done. Just take today for an example, I was experiencing some problems and called on a Saturday. Saturday is a short day for the team, they got me in and out today. Dr. Willeford took care of as if I was his neighbor. Love the place!! Thanks

Laura Strieber

Great eye doctor and vision center. Dr GG is especially thorough and personable. Highly recommended to any one looking for an eye doctor.

Terri Judy

Staff is very friendly and extremely accommodating. There was an issue with my insurance and the Jade went above and beyond to get it straightened out. Dr. Johnson was great! Picking out glasses was not stressful and their selection of frames was great.

Raymond Davila, Sr.

I have been to many other doctors and Ritz & Johnson by far has been the best. Everyone in the office is very friendly and helpful. Dr. Willeford is extremely friendly and easy to talk to. He takes his time with you to make sure you understand what he's talking about. I had issues getting the right prescription for my contacts to be able to use them for far and near. He was able to get it right on the first try. I love this office.

Bonnie Marchant

Ritz and Johnson is great. The staff is friendly and helpful. They take care of all my needs.

Holly Morris

Mary Pead

At this visit for my eye exam, I had doctor Glatter-Götz, she was wonderful. She did not rush me she took time to answer all of my questions and make me feel comfortable about everything. This is extremely important to me because my vision is really really bad. They gave me my contact lens prescription and glasses prescription as well a discount for the contact lenses and a trial pair of contact lenses with a flight size saline. I usually go into an eye exam with some amount of anxiety; Not looking forward to the discomfort and the OMG your vision is sooo bad! This time neither were true, very happy to say

rick stilwell

Dolores Stanton

Been going to Dr. Willeford for years and have no intention of ever changing. Excellent inventory and customer service as well!!!

Hay Jackson

Prompt and not an extensive wait. Kind staff and nice interior.

leslie Thorne

Very professional. Everyone was pleasant. Efficient.

Jacki Robinson

Because I was dissatisfied with the staff and service at my previous eye doctor, I decided to change to Ritz and Johnson two years ago and boy, am I glad I did. The staff is friendly and very competent. Dr. Johnson is extremely thorough in his examination. I never feel hurried. My questions are welcomed and answered. I am treated like a valued patient instead of just a number in a queue. I highly recommend Ritz and Johnson to anyone looking for a higher level of eye care.

JM Wonder

I wasted 4 hours of my PTO because this clinic failed to tell me I HAD to have my eyes dialated even though I told them I was allergic to the dye and it gives me a headache. I have been to over 8 eye doctors all over the country and they NEVER required me to have my eyes dialated. So, I tried to just order new lenses for 3 pairs of glasses and the girl at front desk was so unfriendly, I just decided to take my business elsewhere! Their loss of at least $1000 and a bad review!

Damita Harris

Ritz + Johnson is an AMAZING optometrist. I am from Georgia and came down to see my best friend for a Disney trip. The morning of our trip I woke up with the worst eye pain and complete loss of visibility and my best friend had called all over Ocala for an emergency check in. Ritz + Johnson had squeezed me in and when I got there I was in the waiting room for all of 10 mins and they called me back. They did everything to fix my eye and I wound up have an cornea abrasion from contact fishing syndrome. They then numbed my eyes and gave me some antibiotics to heal it and a nonprescription contact lens that acts as a band aid for it. Today was my check up and everything was well and again got in to a room 10 mins and was seen by the Dr. in no time. Best optometrist experience I’ve had. Wish I lived down here.

Kim Adams

My family and I all see Dr. GiGi! She is extremely kind and takes a very gentle and understanding approach when talking to my kids about their eyes! Educating them on why glasses are so important for there vision! We absolutely adore her! ❤️

Janice Hackett

Micheline Clawson

I was highly allergic to the building. Couldn't get past the front door. May be a great place but avoid it if you have chemical sensitivities.
