Today, I received a miracle. And in two short weeks I will receive another. I do not have the words in this space to express my appreciation for each member of The Loden Vision Center Team. However, I would be honored to give any person who wants a personal testimony of my experience by email or personal phone call. I have already begun telling family and friends what it means to be able to see. May God continue to bestow His richest and choicest blessings on Dr. James Loden and his vision.

I researched before deciding on an eye surgeon and am glad I did. I felt well cared for and have had good results.

I was never able to see 20/20 not even with glasses. After having cataract surgery I was able to have monovision lens. Dr. Loden has made it possible for me to see better than 20/20 and the surgeries were so easy. Thank you to his wonderful sweet caring staff.

Dr. Loden is the greatest surgeon for cataracts. The follow up with doctors like Dr. Emily Evans is so great. She cares for your surgery to be successful. All the staff are so wonderful. They have offices in different cities where you may go close to home. I recommend this practice to anyone.

Dr Loden and his staff were amazing and kind helped us through this.process with information and impatience. My daughter went from being legally blind to seeing 2020 in one surgery. She.Cried when she saw me for the first time. 18 years of me being scared and worried about her has been replaced with security and faith. Dr. Loden is amazing

Loden vision was ABSOLUTELY amazing for my lasik surgery! I could see at 20/20 the next morning after surgery! The surgery was quick and easy and I felt very comfortable and taken care of. The staff and Drs were so helpful, kind, and friendly. They all made me feel extremely comfortable. Going here for lasik was one of the best decisions I have ever made and I would HIGHLY recommend Loden vision to everyone I know!
