      Dr Nixon performed a laser procedure to repair two tears of my retina as well as repairing a partially detached retina. I feel he did an excellent job and was very clear in explaining the procedures and expectation and timing of the recovery.

      Did Laser surgery on my eye because of a torn retina. Very pleased. My total wait time was based on my initial emergency visit. Follow up visits a little longer.

      I was referred to Dr Nixon by an optometrist (who is also great) that said Dr Nixon was exceptional. Before visiting Dr Nixon I also came across several other people who had seen him...they also thought very highly of him. My experience has been no different...he's great. He's clearly good at what he does, but also very easy to communicate with...and genuinely a nice guy.

      in Webberville, TX |
      I find Dr. Nixon to be a very caring Doctor. I have been seeing him for a while now, he is always very professional, and dedicated to helping me overcome my eyesight problems. I had bleeding behind my retina and now after his treatments it is no longer a problem. He takes the time to make sure I understand what is going on with my eyes in terms that I understand. He listens all of my questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has retina problems.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
