In May, Dr. Allaman performed surgery on both eyes removing cataracts, inserting istents, and implanting intraocular lens. Today I can see without contacts or glasses and can read the stock quotes in the WSJ as well as the TV program guide on the TV from across the room. I've had glaucoma for 30 years and now the pressures are sufficiently low that I can eliminate all the eye drops except one at bedtime. I couldn't be more pleased. My eyes are now as good as when I was in my 30's and I'm more than twice that. Dr. Allaman is truly an expert and the very best in his profession. He also runs an excellent office with a very knowledgeable staff. I recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. Allaman performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes plus implanted a toric lens to correct my astigmatism. He did a great job and I would recommend him to anyone. He is very caring, professional, and knowledgable. Whenever I went to the office, the staff was always polite and my wait time was usually very minimal. Overall, a great experience.

Doctor Allaman is the best, and his staff is wonderful. Everyone in the office seems to be determined to me having my eyesight and eye health be the best it can be. This is the best run doctors office I have ever been associated with.
Doctor Allaman is a caring and compassionate man with extraordinary skills and boundless knowledge and energy, I feel so lucky to have him as my physician. And I have been a patient of the doctor's for many, many years.

Perfect work, excellent experience

Dr. Allaman and his office staff is top notch. I’ll make a special call-out to his assistants Lauren and Laura, but the rest of the office staff have also been wonderful to work with.

In both eyes, Dr. Allaman performed a lens replacement and put in a stent to take care of my glaucoma. Dr. Allaman was professional, friendly, careful with explanations, accurate with measurements, precise in surgery and clear with after-surgery instructions. By following his instructions, the result was a surgery free from pain, infections or other complications. Thanks to Dr. Allaman, I now have 20/20 vision, have eye pressures that have significantly reduced the dangers from glaucoma.

I can highly recommend Dr. Allaman and his staff!

Dr. Christen Allaman's knowledge and skills as an eye surgeon are a 5 star gift to humanity. I had cataract surgery and he supported me all the way. The results are a miracle! I now have 20-20 vision in both eyes and do not need eye-glasses anymore after 45 years of wearing them. AS a very active surfer, sailor and driving traveler my vision is extremely important. Now, after his guidance, skill and love of people, at 66 years of age, I have a new lease on life with my vision. I thank God that I found my way to Dr. Allaman's care. His nurses, assistants, office staff, and procedures and followup are excellent. He even calls you in the evening the day of surgery to make certain you are ok. Absolutely 5 star quality! Highly recommend him and his staff to anyone wanting to see the light again! William "Buck" Hoelscher Santa Cruz, CA

Dr Allaman offers a well run fully staffed and busy office practice. Staff offers well articulated vision care and is very clear about their findings and recommendations. Dr Allaman himself does a thorough exam and is also a personable practitioner. Highly recommended even though the wait for new patients is considerable.
