Loden Vision Centers
I had Lasik with Dr. Loden in January and it was the best decision I have made for myself. I am so excited about my new eyes and the screening was free. No hassle and they are super comforting and informative on the procedure and what to expect after. I came out of surgery better than perfect! 20/15! My life is forever changed and it is all thanks to Loden Vision and staff. I really can't thank you guys enough.

I had lasik with Dr. Loden in 2015 and my vision is still great in 2017! Dr. Loden's staff made me feel comfortable and gave me ample information about the procedure and recovery. I do have some dryness after the iLasik procedure but using artificial tears now is a small price to pay to be able to see the world clearly, without any glasses or contacts!!

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 that I have for twenty years. I would recommend them to anyone!

I had lasik surgery with Dr Loden 3 years ago and it was the best decision ever! I had surgery in late afternoon and was able to go back to work the next day. My day time and night time vision is still fabulous! Thank you Dr Loden!!!

Scott Cranford Dr
Dr. Cranford is an awesome eye doctor in the Bellevue area! He treated me for about fifteen years and I only stopped going recently because I moved! He's wonderful and his staff is so friendly!

Quaint little optometrist right in the heart of East Nashville. Reasonable selection of stylish frames without the hassle of driving to Green Hills or Cool Springs.

Every time we've been in, the store is very busy, but they are always kind. The doctors are gentle and explain everything clearly to me about my kids.

My child has been a patient since almost the beginning. We definitely miss Barb in the front office though overall pleased with the service we receive.
Tips & Advices
To find a professional that fits your needs and wants, look for an optometrist with the proper licensing and compliance with state-specific legalities as well as these qualities: attentiveness, ability to listen, ethics, compassion, ability to communicate effectively and willingness to spend time with patients.
Vision, like dental, is often an additional voluntary cost for employers who provide health care coverage. As a result, it may not be included in basic company-sponsored insurance. Those who do have access to this type of coverage - or Medicare - often only pay for a portion of their eye exam services.
The cost of an appointment with an optometrist varies based on the services required. While a typical eye exam can range from $50 to $250, depending on location. If if glasses or contact lenses are prescribed, or tests are needed, the overall expense of an optometrist visit can increase.
The American Optometric Association recommended that patients have their first eye exam at six months of age, followed by another at 3 years old, and again at school age. At that point, Regular annual exams are recommended.
Ophthalmologists are eye doctors that have received higher levels of training than both opticians and optometrists, and can also perform eye surgery when necessary. Opticians design and fit eyeglasses, frames, and lenses that are prescribed by optometrists and ophthalmologists. They do not perform vision tests or write prescriptions for visual aids. Optometrists fall between ophthalmologists and opticians. Optometrists can detect and treat eye abnormalities, prescribe lenses, and complete eye exams, but cannot perform eye surgery.
