Within our Sioux Falls, SD facility, Dr. Tendler provides treatment for cataracts, as well as refractive lens exchange as a way to correct vision.
Cataracts: Cataracts occur as the clouding of the natural lens of the eye. Over time, this can lead to vision loss. For many individuals, cataracts are a natural part of the aging process, and they often develop so slowly that you may be unaware until the condition is more severe. At ART Vision, Dr. Tendler provides both traditional and refractive cataract surgery, depending on the needs of the patient.
Refractive Lens Exchange: Also known as clear lens exchange, refractive lens exchange is a vision correction surgery that includes the removal of the eye's natural lens and replacement of the lens with an IOL (intraocular lens) implant. This procedure is performed in order to correct vision issues for a more permanent solution. Refractive lens exchange is ideal for individuals who are over the age of 50, have not developed cataracts, or who have only slight cataract development.

From someone who was scared to death of having anything done with my eyes to being given the gift of sight - Art Vision is a world class organization and we are lucky to have them here in Sioux Falls."- M.H. / Google / Feb 14, 2020
"I was very happy and well-pleased with the excellent job Dr. Tendler did on repairing my drooping eyelids. She is very caring and concerned about her patients. I enjoyed meeting her and am very happy with the work she did for me. Being able to see with wide open eyes, and no eyelashes blocking my vision is great. I didn't realize what a difference the surgery would make."- K.D. / Healthgrades / Apr 25, 2017
"Amazing Care! - Dr. Tendler was kind and considerate. She even called my home number after surgery to see how I was doing. I don't think anyone could find a more caring doctor or facility."- Anonymous / Vitals / Jun 16, 2016
"Dr. Alison Tendler gave me the gift of sight back! Without her help I would be completely blind today. For many years my sight was deteriorating. I had tried new eyeglasses with different prescriptions but noting seemed to help with my vision issues. My optometrist Dr. Alan Jones referred me to Dr. Tendler. January of 2010 Dr. Tendler did a cornea cell transplant on my left eye. I was 55 at the time. I was scared what if it didn't work and I was blind in my left eye. Several days later I was at my business sitting in my office when I looked up and realized that I was able to see and read a sign that was across the road over 400 feet away. Dr. Tendler recommended that I do the surgery on my other eye and I agreed with her. Today my vision in both eyes is 20/20. Thank you Dr. Alison Tendler you gave me my eyesight back. I am forever grateful. I highly recommend Dr. Alison Tendler!"- L.J. / Office Visit / Mar 22, 2021
"8 months later I am thrilled by my refractive cataract surgery. I had both eyes done and within days of my surgeries being completed, I was amazed by how clearly I could see. By adding the refractive lenses, I am now able to read without the aid of glasses. As an avid golfer, I initially went in since I could not see the golf ball at a distance as it traveled and landed. I not only have my distance vision back, but my near vision as well. It has been an amazing opportunity to be able to see this well again."- J.H. / Office Visit / Mar 22, 2021
