Facebook Reviews

I was so nervous about the thought of undergoing a procedure on my eyes…after all we rely on our eyes every waking moment. Thankfully I was referred to the Nielsen eye center for LASIK. The friendly and gentle staff soothes my nerves and were available via phone and email for all the questions and concerns I had. I had the procedure itself about three weeks ago. It was quick and easy…almost as if I was going in for a routine eye exam. It was incredible and life changing to wake up the morning after with 20/20 and I undoubtedly will continue to go to the Nielsen eye center for my routine exams.I highly suggest the Nielsen eye center for any eye care but especially LASIK- get out and do it people! – Holly Reflek
