LASIK Alternatives for Patients Who Don’t Qualify

For those who do not qualify for LASIK, there are several LASIK alternatives that exist. Most patients who are over the age of 21 and in good heath with no other eye conditions or diseases are generally considered good candidates for LASIK.

LASIK is approved by the FDA to treat a broad range of vision problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. However, some people may not be good candidates for LASIK because of their unique visual imperfections or because of the results of a comprehensive eye examination.

Loden Vision Centers is pleased to offer the following types of vision correction procedures as LASIK alternatives for those patients who do not qualify or would not receive optimal benefit from a LASIK procedure:

PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy): a type of laser vision correction procedure similar to LASIK

Refractive Lens Exchange: a vision correction procedure that works by replacing the natural lens of the eye with a lens implant

Many thanks to Doctor Loden and his amazing staff! They made something that would otherwise be very intimidating very comforting. Their professionalism and service was off the charts. I am one day post surgery and am pain free and can see better than I have for twenty years. I would recommend them to anyone!

I am so thankful to Dr. Loden. My results from my LASIK surgery were instant. I don't have hardly any vision distortion and it 1 day post surgery, it will just keep getting better each day. I see better now than I've ever been able to with glasses or contacts. I so recommend Dr. Loden!!!

Provided by Citysearch - Thanks to Dr. Loden and his staff. I had LASIK yesterday with the guarantee that I would have 20/20 or better. Now it's the day after and sure enough I have 20/20 in both eyes and Dr. Loden says "it will only get better." Everything he has said has been spot on so there is no need to doubt him now. His staff was the nicest people I've ever met in a business environment. If anyone deserves a award it would be Loden Vision Center.
