The staff and Dr. Lindahl are great. Dr. Lindahl follows me as a patient even though I live in SC. The staff is caring and attentive to my needs. Really love this practice.

I have been a long time patient of Dr. Lindahl. All the doctors and staff are wonderful, very helpful and professional.
in Rochester, NY |
Dr. Lindahl & the office professionals are excellent. He even brought me a cup of coffee after the procedure. My only concern is the cost . I was quoted $2,400 ($1200 per eye) for cataract surgery and the overall cost is over $7,500.00 . If I knew it would have cost this much, I would not have had it done here.

Dr. Lindahl says...

Dr. Kenneth Lindahl was born and raised in Irondequoit, a Rochester suburb, and majored in physics at Union College. After graduating summa cum laude, he attended the University of Rochester (U of R) School of Medicine, trained in internal medicine, and served the National Health Service Corps from 1983 to 1986. He returned to the U of R to train in Ophthalmology, serving as Chief Resident in1989, and trained in cornea and external disease as a Fellow with world famous Dr. James V.Aquavella.

The energetic surgeon enjoys a wide variety of interests including piano, guitar, and opera and orchestral music along with long-distance running and golf. He and his wife, Kathy, are proud parents to three accomplished daughters, age 11 to 26, and are members of Browncroft Community Church. Dr. Lindahl thoroughly enjoys making his life in Rochester. “There’s a small town feeling of community here, but with world-class cultural experiences and opportunities, including great food, and golf.”

With more than 25 years’ experience since his formal training, Dr. Lindahl has dedicated his professional life to the most advanced Cataract and LASIK surgery for his patients. The first Ophthalmologist from Upstate New York to have LASIK performed on his own eyes, and the first in New York State to perform microincisional cataract surgery, Dr. Lindahl has stayed at the forefront of modern ophthalmologic technology and surgical technique.
