Exceptional service and results
I had cataract surgery and a lens implant in each eye. My experience with Doctor Nielsen and his extraordinary staff could not have been better! I was well informed as to the process and costs. Appointments were easy to schedule. Each procedure went great, and my vision is back to 20/20. I highly recommend Doctor Nielsen!

Lasik eye surgery
I would highly recommend the Nielsen eye center. Thank you Dr. Nielsen and your team for giving me back the gift of clear vision. I am so happy that I had the Lasik eye surgery done. The freedom from prescription eye glasses is so liberating.

As always, my visit w Dr Nielsen was informative and professional And in this case was a followup from cataract surgery that had been performed by he and his team. I take comfort in the fact that he has built a team around him that reflects that professionalism and care

Reception very welcoming & thorough. The assistant again was informative in my review before seeing Dr. Neilson. The Dr was apologetic of his lateness due to an emergency. They all work together to make the eye exam pleasant.
