Dr. Allaman and his A team did a magnificent surgical job installing toric lenses in both my eyes. They listened to and accommodated my many special needs, now I've got the best vision I've ever had in my whole life!

Today it's hard to believe that 8 months ago cataracts had so impaired my vision I could barely read with glasses. Cataract removal and multifocal lens implants changed all of that. Here I am today at my laptop writing this--my glasses a thing of the past. Thanks, Dr. A.

I have just completed my cataract surgery with Dr. Allaman and could not be more pleased. The results are amazing. Just as amazing is the fact that the entire procedure from beginning to end was handled in a friendly. informative, and supportive manner from the receptionist and the techs right to the top - Dr. Allaman. I would recommend him and his team without hesitation. By the way, I'm writing this review without glasses or contact lenses. SHARON L. SMITH - APTOS

My eyesight had deteriorated to the point where it was almost impossible to read the giant "E" on the eye chart. After Dr. Allaman performed refractive cataract surgery and implanted a Premium Intra-Ocular Lens, I now have 20/25 vision in my right eye and can't wait until my left eye is done. Dr. Allaman has worked a miracle in my opinion and the procedure is quick and painless. I can't describe how grateful I am to him and his wonderful staff!

Many thanks to Dr. Allaman and his excellent staff. Because of his excellent work I am theoretically glasses free. I will use a prescription though, that clears up my vision even better in my lazy eye. I could wear a contact in it if I wish! Amazing, exciting, and life changing. I had cataracts removed and multi-focal lenses inserted. Truly an awesome experience to see colors and see food!

Dr. Allaman and his staff were a blessing.The cataract surgery was quick and completely painless. I don't have the words to describe the results...incredible, amazing, unbelievable! I had been missing out on so much of the beauty of this world! I used to only drive in the slow lane because I couldn't see exit signs until I was almost under them, and I was therefore nervous to drive in unfamiliar areas. Now I drive all over. Put yourself in the hands of this wonderful doctor!
