Welcome to Hayden Vision

Surgical Ophthalmology Practice of Gregory Hayden, MD

Gregory Hayden MD established Hayden Vision in 2003 as Evansville’s specialty cataract and laser vision correction center, combining the amazing advances in vision technology with compassion and medical professionalism to the tri-state area. Joined by James Stearns, MD, Emily Ryan, OD and C. Mark Millsap, MD, Hayden Vision offers complete ophthalmology and optometry care.  We’ll help free you from contacts and glasses through precision LASIK when you’re ready, ensure your eye health is optimized with annual wellness care, and provide unparalleled surgical expertise for cataracts, advanced lens implants, glaucoma and retinal issues as you, and your eyes, age. It is our commitment to preserve and protect your vision, at every life stage.

Dr. Hayden is a member of the prestigious American Refractive Surgery Council, an organization committed to excellence in refractive surgery.  Only approximately 150 surgeons worldwide are invited into this organization, which supports only scientifically-proven technology and unbiased communication of patient benefits.  Too often, elective medical procedures are over-hyped, and prospective patients received too little education about options and outcomes.  Dr. Hayden and his team ensure we understand your lifestyle, appropriately match you to procedure options, and educate you about outcomes and risks.  Hayden Vision is built on collaboration, a hallmark of the best refractive surgery practices worldwide.

  • I could not have asked for a better experience! The interaction I had with the staff was wonderful. Dr. Hayden is probably one of the best doctors I have ever dealt with. He spent plenty of time with me, completely explained what he saw in my eyes, and answered all of my questions. My friends told me that I needed to switch to him, and they were right. Highly recommend to everyone.
