I am both an avid reader and a birder who recently had cataract surgery in both eyes. What a revelation! I can now see so much and so clearly that other birders are surprised when I can spot things far, far away and see colors I have only guessed at in the recent past. Since I opted for the simple distance lens implants, I need glasses to read and that vision too is excellent. Besides the surgery was a snap and I was able to see very clearly the day after the surgery. I would recommend Dr. Allaman and his staff to anyone contemplating this surgery. Just look up Allaman Eye Care if you want professional and caring service.

Specializes in Cataract surgery. I am 71 and had 20/600 vision (acute myopia) with no astimatism. Three weeks later I have perfect vision. The doctor is very business like, very knowledgeable and has an excellent staff. We were told he is the best cataract doctor on the Northern California coast and that proved to be true.

I AM TYPING THIS ON MY COMPUTER WITHOUT WEARING GLASSES, TO DAYS AFTER HAVING CATARACTS ON MY LEFT (WORST) EYE REMOVED AND THE NEW LENS PLACED. HAVE BEEN WEARING GLASSES FOR OVER 40 YEARS, NOW TWO DAYS AFTER SURGERY CAN DO MOST THINGS WITHOUT WEARING ANY CORRECTION, EVEN THOUGH THE RIGHT (BEST) EYE IS STILL TO BE DONE. ALL I CAN SAY IS WOW!!!!! THE SURGERY WAS QUICK, THE FOLLOWUP WAS QUICK, STAFF IS GREAT, VERY CARING, ANSWERS QUESTIONS, DEALS WITH FEARS IN A PROFESSIONAL MANNER.

Dr. Allaman is excellent. I had very, very bad cataracts with high myopia and astigmatism. Now I see perfectly - better than 20/20! The surgery was absolutely painless and not at all frightening. I was impressed with the care he took to prevent infection and swelling. Each appointment I go to, I wait an average of 1 to 2 minutes. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He really knows what he is doing, and you can see the results. I got toric lenses because of my astigmatism, and I am extremely happy with them. I would highly, highly recommend Dr. Allaman. I have been on cloud nine ever since my surgery!

I had both eyes fitted with implants and I love them. The procedure was quick and painless. Pros: corrected near sited, far sited and stigmatisms. No more glasses at all. Cons: still get halos when driving at night, not bad. I can't follow the golf ball anymore on the golf course. There is a minor blur every now and then corrected by blinking. I believe the surgery was well worth the results at this point. It has almost been a year now and I notice something new and good almost every day.

Both the staff and Dr. Allaman were helpful, professional. I had lens replacements and I had no problems with the surgery or post surgery. I definitely recommend Dr. Allaman for lens replacement. His office and technical staff were great.

I had 2 cataract procedures within 3 weeks. The prep and after surgery procedures can be complicated, however, because of Doctor Allaman's staff and his direction I was able to take the proper care of my eyes. The results of both surgerys have been spectacular and I only wish that I would have done this earlier. The procedures were painless, I was treated with much care and respect, and the end result is better than I ever imagined. Dr. Allaman's skills are superior and his attention to me as one of his many patients has been been personal and geninue. After all is said and done I can see better than ever and do not have to wear my glasses for anything other than close up reading. Doctor Allaman's staff are friendly, knowledgeable and attentive before, during and after the surgery. All in all a great experience that has been worth much more than I had anticipated. Sincerely, Jan Carey, a happy patient.

Dr. Allaman performed my cataract surgery a few months ago. After all of my consultations I decided the crystal lens was the best for me. It gave me my close up vision middle range vision and distance vision back. I also do not have to wear glasses which was my original goal. I would recommend Dr. Allaman to anyone who needs cataract surgery. Also his staff is very professional and caring
