Ratings for Dr. Christen Allaman
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.
WOW! Best surgery every! So very excited! Thank you so very much Dr. Allaman for the most positive experience ever! Had no idea what I was NOT seeing until I was wheeled out of cataract surgery and instantly could see crystal clear. I am so blessed and thank you and your staff for handling me so professional and caring. Thank you for the gift of site and for treating me so kindly! I will be forever grateful!! Another excellent thing about it is you were right here in Santa Cruz! Thank you ! Thank you! Thank you!
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!
I agree with Mr. Nee. I had the identical procedure--cataract removal and (AcrySof iq ReSTOR) multifocal lens implants. I have nothing, but high praise for the procedure and the result I highly recommend Dr. Allaman to anyone needing cataract removal. JOSEPH CURTIS, SANTA CRUZ, CA
I agree with the other testimonials here. Dr. Allaman is very competent in his speciality. He's removed cataracts from both of my eyes. the surgery was over before I knew it had begun. My recovery was quick & painless. I've recommended him to friends who needed cataract surgery. JIM NEE, Santa Cruz, CA
Highly recommended. I've been a patient for nearly 10 years. A little over a year ago I had bilateral cataract surgery. After consultation and reflection, I opted for the multifocal lenses. The result was superb. The procedure was easy and the process convenient. I am 20/20 and 20/25, and do not need glasses for distant or close vision. Well worth the additional cost. Dr. Allaman is efficient and responsive to questions; the staff is well-organized, cordial, and helpful.
