Better Already – I spent 15 months on Active Duty with the majority of that spent deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. I returned to the States completely fed-up with wearing glasses. Having to switch back and forth between goggles, sunglasses and regular glasses everytime I went in and out of building or a sand-storm hit just added to daily frustrations.
I was driving into downtown Nashville from Murfreesboro one day and saw a billboard that said Loden Vision Center had "Top Gun Approved" iLasik. A week or so later, they were an ad sponsor on my Facebook side-panel offering a free iPad through the month of March. I had saved-up some money while on deployment specifically to get vision correction, so I figured the time was right to give them a call.
I went to the office on 21st Ave in Nashville, since that is the closest location they have to Murfreesboro. I had my free screening and actually met with Dr. Loden that day. The staff was awesome and their testing equipment was way beyond anything the Army ever used. I had a follow-up exam with full dialation a week or so later and then scheduled my appointment for iLasik!
They day of the surgery came and went so quickly. When I first arrived that morning, they made one final check to make sure everything was set specifically for the shape of my eyes. Then all of the patients scheduled for surgery sat and waited for the meds to kick-in. I was the 2nd person of the day and it was all over in a matter of minutes.
There is some discomfort to having your eyelids held open, but you feel no "pain" at all when the flap is made or when the laser re-shapes your eye. The whole process for each eye is only a few seconds... I could hear Dr Loden counting down and then saying "Perfect. All done."
When I went back the next morning for my follow-up, my right eye (dominant) was already at 20/15 and my left eye (astigmatism) was just about at 20/20. Within the first few days there was a striking difference in my distance vision... I could read signs from all the way across the store for the first time in a decade. It has now been 3 days since my surgery and my right eye fells great. My left eye still seems a bit dry and itchy, but should get better over the next few days. Overall, the clinic and staff were great and the procedure has been a success!
Wanted lasik, got PRK, couldn't be happier! – I went to Dr. Loden because my mom had Lasik done by him and really liked him. The consultation was free, so that was another reason to go. I wanted to have Lasik, but Dr. Loden found that I wasn't the best candidate for the surgery, so they suggested PRK. I got the surgery, I have 20/20 vision now, and I couldn't be happier! Its so nice not to have to fool with contacts and glasses anymore! Thanks Dr. Loden and AJ!
Great cataract surgery! – I got early cataracts from taking incorrect amounts of eye drops. Dr. Loden's office expected payment up front, which wasn't fully explained to me and which I didn't realize until my day of surgery!! My FSA account wouldn't pay ahead of time, of course!, so I was required to pay that full amount by check before Dr. Loden did the surgery. The surgery itself, however, was magic. Dr. Loden's assistants made me feel very relaxed and comfortable, even though I knew I would be AWAKE during the surgery. As they bragged, Dr. Loden was born with a scalpel in his hand! No problems at all, recovery was easy, and I still see great, 2 years later. Thanks Dr. Loden!!
Great eye surgery!!! – I came to Dr. Loden about 4 years ago for LASIK surgery. Dr. Loden was the only doctor who actually took the time to personally meet with me and discuss my options. He felt I was not an ideal candidate for LASIK because of "thin corneas". Since then I had the Implantable Contact Lens done and see 20/15 today thanks to Dr. Loden and his team of experts at Loden Vision Centers!! Thank you Dr. Loden!
