Our Success Story

Shortly after completing optometry school nearly 20 years ago, dynamic duo Dr. Chad and Dr. Kristen Nicholson moved to Colorado together. It was here that Dr. Chad Nicholson began practicing with Dr. James Simonson in the Doctors of Optometry Next to LensCrafters (Park Meadows Mall in Littleton, CO). Meanwhile, Dr. Kristen Nicholson began practicing at a private practice in Parker, CO. It wasn’t long before she joined her husband and Dr. Simonson in 2002.  

Four years later, the Nicholsons opened their own practice within the LensCrafters at the Southlands Outdoor Mall in Aurora where they still practice today. In 2019, the couple decided to expand their practice to take on a second location at Park Meadows Center in Lone Tree.
