Eye Exams & All Eye Care Services

Dr. Nicholson’s office will provide you with everything you need to take supreme care of your eyes and vision! We know that sharp eyesight is integral to your quality of life, and your healthy eyes are our top priority. Our office is fully furnished with cutting-edge technology and all the latest optometric equipment, so you’ll benefit from our first-rate diagnoses and treatment. With a warm, welcoming atmosphere, we want you to have a positive and comfortable experience at Dr. Philip Nicholson’s practice.

Whether or not you have vision complaints, it’s important to have a routine eye exam performed regularly. In our Beltsville, MD, clinic, we’ll check the quality of your vision and the health of your eyes, using our expert skill and years of experience. With the help of high-powered lenses, digital imagery and other specialized devices, we’ll inspect your inner eye tissues for any signs of ocular disease, such as cataracts, macular degeneration and glaucoma. Dr. Nicholson also offers additional testing for vision-related health problems, such as migraines or lazy eye.

Contact Lenses

Are you interested in replacing your eyeglasses with a pair of contact lenses? We’ll assess your eyes and fit you with the ideal lenses for your vision condition. We provide follow-up visits to verify that your contacts fit well, grant you crisp vision and aren’t causing any complications. If you suspect any damage to your eyes, from contact lenses or any foreign object or substance, we are qualified to provide emergency eye care. Be sure to call us immediately in the event of any eye emergencies and we will guide you on how to proceed.

No matter what eye care service you need, we invite you to schedule a visit at our office located conveniently at the Beltsville Costco, in Beltsville, Maryland. Our professional team is waiting to see you!


Yesterday, the company that provides cloud-based patient record management for us came under cyberattack and the system was shut down to protect the security of medical information. This attack is affecting hospitals and clinics nationwide. The FBI is assisting this company now. Because of this, we cannot access your records so we are unable to provide you with information you may need. We will prioritize your requests but we have no idea when we will be able to help you.

This has affected our ability to check or schedule appointments. If you have an appointment with us, please plan on coming in. However, if you need copies of prescriptions, reports, MVA forms or need to make a future appointment - we cannot do that now.

The best way to communicate with us is by the text number listed here or by email to DrNicholsonsOfficeATGmaildotcom. We apologize and ask for your understanding during this extraordinary event.
