Nikki Nix, COA, CPPS, has been part of the Ocala Eye team for over twenty years.
Serving as a Surgical Assistant at our Accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center for eight years, Nikki worked alongside our surgeons in the operating room; helping assist with laser technology and minor procedures. In addition to the ophthalmic surgery knowledge she brings to our practice, Nikki has experience managing the clinical and customer service departments. As the Premium Services Coordinator, Nikki oversees the refractive and preoperative departments and our surgical schedulers.
“I absolutely love that I directly impact patients having better vision after surgery because it’s the one and only time they get the opportunity to fix what they were born with. I sometimes think I get more excited than the patients because I know how life-changing it’s going to be for them,” Nikki says.
Nikki received her Certified Ophthalmic Assistant certification from The International Joint Commission on Allied Health Personnel in Ophthalmology and is recognized as a Certified Patient Experience Specialist.
She is a proud law enforcement wife and mom of four. When not at work, Nikki owns an Ocala pet training business and helps manage a non-profit organization called K9’s United. She enjoys spending time with her family and pets and participating in Ocala Eye Foundation’s mission trips.
