Will I need to wear glasses after LASIK?

Most patients who have LASIK with Dr. Loden or his team no longer need glasses or contacts for most activities. However, for those patients who are over 40, you may still need to wear reading glasses for up close and/or intermediate vision. This is due to a condition known as presbyopia, or aging of the eye, which is a part of the natural aging process regardless of whether or not you’ve had LASIK.

Will I have perfect vision?

The goal of LASIK is to reduce your dependence on glasses and contacts, although it’s not uncommon for Loden Vision Centers LASIK patients to see better than they ever had before. We cannot promise “perfect” vision and those patients over the age of 40 will still need to wear reading glasses due to the normal aging process of the eye. To achieve the best visual result, it is extremely important to choose the most experienced surgeon you can find, who uses the most advanced FDA-approved technology.

David Canfield reviewed Loden Vision Centers — 5 star
From day 1 I knew I made the right choice for my LASIK eye surgery. From friend’s recommendations to the young lady I first had contact with at the desk. Great group. Great service and surgery was a breeze. Dr. Loden and his staff are top notch. I can’t say enough great things. My vision was dramatically different hours later. Everything was told to me and I continue to improve.
Thank you so much,

I cannot wait to see how well my new vision improves my hunting..!!!

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.
