Dr. Ben-Nissan graduated from Illinois College of Optometry in 1991 and has been in private practice in South Florida since that time. After 25 years of practice in South Beach, he relocated to a newer, larger, state-of-the-art office directly across the street from the Intracoastal Mall, where he and his staff can better serve you by providing a more comfortable and spacious environment, as well as a complete line of optical frames.
