So far my experience with MN Eye Consultants has been excellent. All of the staff involved with my cataract surgery have been very professional and efficient. Dr. Hardten explains the procedures quite well. I also had the astigmatism in both eyes fixed and my vision is much better. However, on this last visit, Dr. Hardten told me that I have some lens epithelial cells remaining so will have to go back for a YAG Laser Capsulotomy procedure to fix this.

I am a new patient of Dr. Hardten. I had no idea what to expect - but was pleasantly surprised. The level of care and concern I was given was top notch. All questions were answered, and concerns addressed. Surgery was performed on one eye, then three weeks later, surgery was performed on the other eye. I was extremely nervous the first time - but first surgery went so well I couldn't wait to get my second eye done!

I was very impressed with Dr. Hardten, he was of course extremely knowledgeable and professional and the best at what he does, that's why I chose him to preform both of my procedures. I am extremely happy with my results.

I was extremely impressed from the time I checked in and then left after my visit. Cara greeted me and took me to the three rooms where she tested my eyes. Before each test she explained what she was doing. Upon completion of her responsibilities, I then met Dr. Hardten. He warmly greeted me and introduced me to his two interns. He then proceeded to explain my problem - Fuchs Dystrophy - and how it was affecting my eyes. I was greatly encouraged by his report and felt very cared for. I would recommend Dr. Hardten to anyone who had eye problems.

As a patient with a diseased cornea, I will gladly make that two-hour drive down to Minneapolis knowing that my cornea is getting the best care with Dr. Hardten. He is very current on available treatment options—getting me on ground-breaking meds that may have saved my vision. I am optimistic that this latest cornea transplant performed by Dr. Hardten will bring back usable vision for me. Worth the drive and wait.

I trust this team with my eyes..my vision. They hear my questions take time to answer them. I can count on Dr Hardten's depth of training, experience, and skill...he has made my quality of vision so markedly better after an accident I sustained some years back. And today's visit: exceptional friendly service from all the support and technical staff at this location.
