When Dr. K. McKenzie retired he chose Dr. C. Allaman to take his practice, saying, "He is a brilliant surgeon, a Star". In the intervening 19 years I have seen Dr. Allaman's excellence in all aspects of eye care. His office staff are professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. On Mar. 26, 2013 he performed a complicated cataract/glaucoma procedure on my rt. eye. Prior to surgery I had zero vision. On my drive to post-op visit on Mar. 27, I was able to read the freeway overpass signs and visually able to identify everyone that I knew. I am a senior senior, and had worn glasses for many years. I do not need them now. Gratefully, Kathleen Bowers
I was afraid to have cataract surgery and now I am so grateful that I did. Dr. Allaman and his staff eased me through the whole procedure. I feel that I have my life back. I was becoming reclusive. Now I walk, drive and bike with confidence.
I am a very happy patient of Dr. Allaman. He is my hero. My experience was wonderful. The surgery was easy and a success. I am a monovision patient and wore a contact in my left eye for 25 years. I now have a permanent lens in my eye and I can read perfectly. I had surgery on October 22, 2013 and I could read without glasses the next day. Dr. Allaman has made my life so much better and easier it is truly a miracle. He is so personable and kind and is very professional.I think everyone who needs cataract surgery should see Dr. Allaman. I love him because he changed my quality of life. I'm in my 70s and appreciate his compassion. Sincerely Fran Holbrook
Dr. Allaman and his staff are wonderful, efficient, polite and professional. Dr Allaman took time to explain to me just what to expect and I am delighted with the results. The surgery was well orchestrated and very professional and personally kind to me. I always felt well taken care of and the results are just wonderful!! Dr. Allaman thank you! I will recommend you to all of my family and friends. To have good eye site is a blessing and you and your staff made that possible.
Today, for the first time since 3rd grade (and I’m old) I can see 20/20 in both eyes without glasses or contacts. Miracles do happen thanks to Dr. Allaman. Upon the diagnosis of cataracts, Dr, Allaman recommended a lens implant. I took his advice. The operation was short and painless. The cataract and astigmatism are gone, and my vision is perfect. In only one day after surgery, I can read a book, and see the stars all by myself. Dr. Allaman, you are the best!
Excellent care, staff was knowledgeable, listened and were attentive. Dr. Allaman demonstrated great skill in performing my two lens implants. I experienced no pain and was able to go to work within a few hours following each surgery.Before and after the procedures Dr. Allaman spent time with me explaining the procedure and was available to answer questions. In the surgery suit I noted that he took exceptional care to prevent infection and he charted each procedure immediately after coming out of surgery.
I received excellent service when Dr. Allaman removed a cataract and inserted a Zoric lens to correct astigmatism as well. He is extremely knowledgeable, concerned, and has good follow-up as well as prep. He is personally involved at every step. I can see with greater clarity, perceive colors more vibrantly and have more light. I highly recommend him for this procedure.
Have every confidence that Dr Allaman "knows his stuff". He has keep glaucoma at bay for many years. He also performed cataract surgery and urged me to get permanent lenses inserted;since I wore glasses/contacts since age 13 it has been a real pleasure not wearing glasses.
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.
