I've known Dr. Loden for years. Unfortunately I didn't start seeing him for a complex eye injury from 1977 until a few years ago. Luckily my old and outdated ophthalmologist retired. I had a severe intra ocular bleed while on Coumadin and Dr. Loden was able to get the dangerously high pressure in my eye down and save my eye. The best thing is I see better now than I've ever seen since initial injury. Dr. Loden and his staff are true professionals and I'm forever grateful for their care!

unprofessional staff. Doctor did not spend time with me. I went because of the ads and the price was right. But my lasik did not turn out well. Having severe dry eyes and they are blowing me off unless I want to spend more money. didn't have this problem before surgery.

Closed his clinic at Skyline without warning. I don't know what type of problem they had but they should tell patients. Called the number and they said I would have to go to one of their other facilities but I would not be able to see my normal doctor. not happy.

I had cataract surgery 2-4-16. I was scared to death about having the procedure done. My daughter had Lasik with Dr. Loden in August 2015. She assured me that I would be just fine. Her words, He gave me superpower eye sight (20/15) and you will be good too. On the am of 2-5-16 I was 20/20 and refracted to 20/15. I could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you Dr. Loden and all of your staff!
