I had been wanting Lasik surgery for quite a few years. It wasn’t that contacts “bothered” me or that I had a very strong prescription (2.75 in each eye), but I grew tired of poking and putting something in my eyes every day as well as the monthly payments for contacts that add-up over time.
My only hesitation was the thought of surgery on my eyes. However, after meeting and working with Dr. Nicholas Nissirios and his staff, my fears and any doubts quickly diminished. Lasik with Dr. Nissirios became one of the best decisions I ever made!
(1) I got 20/20 vision the very next day after the procedure (2) No pain/discomfort during the 15 minute surgery (3) Dr. Nissirios and his staff were incredibly supportive, comforting, and easy to work with (4) Dr. Nissirios talked to me throughout the surgery, making me feel very at ease
In short, I have perfect vision with zero pain, had an incredible experience with a highly trained and supportive staff, and would recommended Dr. Nissirios to anyone considering Lasik.
It’s worth it!Amy S.
I had LASIK surgery with Dr. Nissirios, and going to him was the best decision I have made about my eyes. Dr. Nissirios explained the whole procedure to me with patience and detail. He was understanding, comforting, and patiently answered all my questions. I was initially afraid of the surgery, but he alleviated all my fears. He is a highly skilled doctor who is incredibly knowledgeable in his field. I am extremely happy with the results and my new 20/20 vision. If you are looking for a great ophthalmologist, I highly recommend Dr. Nissirios.Kelly S.
Wish Facebook had a “love” button to recommend this office 🙂
I had Intralase LASIK surgery a week ago, performed by Dr. Nick Nissirios and am still amazed by my experience. After consulting with several offices, this was the first that I felt completely comfortable and had all of my questions answered in detail. The staff went out of their way to make sure my consult, follow up and procedure fit into my schedule, and every person I had the pleasure of dealing with had a sunny attitude and a knowledgable background. While some doctors leave you in the waiting room forever, this office respected my time and appointment, and I was always seen promptly.
I would (and have) recommend Dr. Nissirios to anyone considering LASIK vision correction as my results were amazing. A toric contact lens wearer since age seven, I have an entirely new life after this surgery. Not only can I see better than I ever have, but getting ready in the morning is a breeze without fussing with contacts or trying to find my glasses. Dr. Nick was unbelievably nice and a true professional, making sure I was fully aware of what to expect every step of the process. I even received a phone call a few hours after my surgery to check on my progress. Though having a laser in your eye seems harrowing, I was shocked that the procedure was completely painless with the only side effect being a slight dry eye feeling (which is much less than when I had contacts.) In short: I feel perfect, see amazing and know this was THE BEST MONEY I HAVE EVER SPENT.
Thank you Dr. Nissirios for the 5 -star experience.Bonnie L.
I recently had laser eye surgery and it was the best decision due to it substantially changing my quality of life. Dr Nissirios and staff made it a wonderful experience… It’s unbelievable how well I was able to see right after the surgery. I went from a -8 eye prescription to reading on the 20/20 line on the eye chart. It’s been over seven weeks now, my eyes are doing great and I’m beyond elated with the outcome. Thanks again to Dr. Nissirios and staff they’re amazing.Nicole B.

Great doctor, pleasant office. Will go again.Anonymous
Doctor Nissirios explained everything clearly and has a friendly attitude. He’s patient and is also efficient. The same goes for his receptionist, which does everything she can to make your insurance process smooth and easy. I would definitely recommend him for those looking to get glasses or if your eye is really dry and you need drops. The office is close to the N train, and the office is not crowded so wait time is minimal.Anonymous
Very educational and patient mannerAnonymous
Receptionist was literally the perfect receptionist. Very capable, and friendly. Dr. Nissirios was great as well. Very friendly, direct, to the point, makes sure you understand. My only complaint would be that the reception area is shared with a couple other doctors and kind of chaotic.Anonymous
Dr. Nissirios was very kind and patient with my nervous 4 year old. He was detailed and clear with how to treat the bump on her eye (enlarged infected stye). And even though he had to pop it and that made her cry he made her feel much better with praises on her bravery. It’s not easy to treat a toddler and he made our experience wonderful. I’ll not only be following up for my toddler, I will be making appointments for my entire family.Jade G.
