"Doctor Carl Nicholson and staff are friendly. They explain each step, so you know what to expect (like that evil puff of air machine). Dr. Nicholson will show you how your prescription works - I had no idea what axis of astigmatism meant until I visited him."

"My first experience was not good but they are close to my office, so I gave them another chance. This time I was assisted by Gina and got excellent service.  She took the time  to help me pick an fabulous pair of glasses and made great lenses recommendation." She is the best.

Tina B. – Baldwin Park, CA

"I've been a patient for about ten years now and from day one Dr. Nicholson and his friendly staff especially Evette has been very professional, knowledgeable, helpful, and attentive. Dr. Nicholson has helped me find the right contacts at a great price and always recommends that I get glasses since I don't have any at the moment. The office is located in a beautiful building and the atmosphere is very pleasant. I would recommend Dr. Nicholson's optometry services to any one that needs this type of service. Thanks for always being kind and friendly Dr. Nicholson, Evette, and his helpful staff!!"
