The entire process was more than I expected! I was nervous when first going in about the surgery because of not knowing what to expect, but they were very informative and helped me to understand the entire process and what to expect. Every visit went quicker than expected, but I never felt rushed through. The day of the surgery I was very nervous, but the staff and doctor explained everything that was going to happen just before it happened. I was there for about two hours (as they had previously explained), but the actual LASIK only took about 15 minutes. On the way home, I felt a little discomfort (left eye felt dry and right eye felt like something was in it), but went home and took a nap as instructed and was good to go! I followed the post op instructions and didn’t feel anymore discomfort. The next day, my vision was great (a little “foggy”, but that was expected). I was so impressed by everything, I immediately text my friend who has been looking into having it done to recommend

After many years of wanting to get LASIK, I decided to go for it and I couldn't be happier. The procedure was super easy, the staff was friendly and professional. Just 24 hours later I had perfect vision. I highly recommend Dr. Loden and his team!

10/10 would recommend No, actually, wait, let me change my rating. 20/20 would recommend. Kindness: Everyone there treated me with dignity and respect. Generosity: I didn't expect to receive a gift, on top of the gift of new vision. Thank you to Dr Loden, Dr Judd, Jessie, Olivia, Chelsea, Lilly, and the rest of the team at Loden Vision. I love my T-shirt too! Haha yes the swag is more than enough to get a review out of me, and some free advertising as i wear the shirt around town. Patience: Sure, we had to shuffle around some of the details, including pushing back the surgery by a couple of weeks due to unforeseen circumstances. For me, it was an opportunity to give grace and practice patience. I mean, by that point i had already been wearing eyeglasses for years, what's a couple more weeks gonna hurt? I'm about 96 hours post-LASIK and incredibly grateful to Dr Loden, Dr Judd, my surgery counselor Olivia.

Dr. Loden was fantastic. I could not be happier with the results of my surgery. I had been told previously I wasn’t a good candidate for Lasik. He talked me through the entire process and was especially great on surgery day.

I had LASIK eye surgery yesterday and can already see better than I could with glasses! I’ve wanted this done for about 20 years. It was absolutely the best experience and the only regret I have is not doing it sooner. I was terrified and trembling before the surgery, only to be pleasantly surprised that the procedure was painless and quick. I was worried for nothing! Dr. Loden and Dr. Judd made the experience wonderful. I am going to refer all of my friends and family to Loden Vision!

Dr. Loden is amazing!!!! He is extremely knowledgeable and took his time with me. He answered all my questions and taught me more about my migraines and how he could help. I am an anxious individual and he made me feel safe and confident, especially during the LASIK procedure. I can now see better than I ever have. I will never regret this experience. I would recommend Dr. Loden to anyone and everyone!!

Dr. Loden and the staff were extremely friendly and calming throughout my Lasik process. I went from very nearsighted (20/300) to 20/20 the next day. The surgery will take only a few minutes and Loden is very good at calming you down. The next day I felt amazing! Highly recommend.

Dr. Loden and his staff are the best. I had cataract surgery to remove cataracts from both eyes three weeks apart. I had put off this surgery because of fear. After consultation with Dr. Loden and the technology he has available in his office I was assured that my surgery would be great. And it has been. I could see 20/20 the day after surgery. Color, distance vision and night vision is awesome. Absolutly no pain. Everyone on his staff is amazing. If you have any doubts or fears, let them go. Dr. Loden is the BEST!!! So thankful I had this done. Judy Milliken, Madison, TN.

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 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.
