Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Harbor Eyecare Center the leading provider of vision care products and services in Portsmouth.
Nikolas Moore, OD
Harbor Eyecare Center is excited to announce the addition of Dr. Nikolas Moore. Dr. Nik graduated from The New England College of Optometry in 2020. His doctoral training included patient care at the VA in Bedford, East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, Lynn Community Health Center, Martha Elliot Health Center, and others. Dr. Nik is interested in neuro-optometry, ocular disease, and family eye care. “My goals are to treat patients with respect and compassion. I want patients to feel totally comfortable under my care and that of the staff here at the Harbor Eyecare Center. I enjoy thoroughly educating patients on their specific eye-related conditions and needs. Half of medicine is education; the more a patient understands the more they can actively make choices that will better their health. I want to share my knowledge with my patients so that together we can be informed and make better and wiser decisions about their ocular and general health.”
Dr. Nik has spent most of his life in southern NH and loves living in New England. He likes to spend his non-work time outside exploring nature, whether it be hiking, swimming, boating, or fishing.
Dr. Nik will be working in concert with Dr. Amy for brain injury, neuro optometry, and binocular vision care patients. He is also accepting primary eye care patients of any age.

“I love learning all of the ways that a person’s vision is unique to them. This can be related to their daily tasks, hobbies, ocular health, and so much more. It’s a great experience to work together to determine the best visual outcome!” As a native of Nashua, NH she loves hiking and exploring New England with her husband. Dr. Rinita is accepting new patients of any age.
