"All the swimming in my daily lifestyle made it difficult to wear soft contact lenses. My eyes would be dry and irritated at the end of the day. After discovering CRT lenses as a possible alternative, I scheduled and appointment. I was pleased by a welcoming, friendly, and enthusiastic atmosphere. On my second visit I was issued my CRT lenses. After my first night with my lenses my vision improved 20-30%. After 10 days my vision was 20/25 compared to my normal vision of 20/350. The contacts were initially uncomfortable and foreign, but I was determined to get through this phase. Almost a month later my vision is very close to perfect and my eyes give me no problems in the pool. It's also a cool feeling to be independent of contacts and glasses during the day. Overall I'm very happy with the amazing results and eager to note that each visit is an enjoyable experience."

"As an elite professional in the medical field of Optical Health, Dr. Tirado has been my trusted Optical Doctor for the past 20+ years. In 1996, during a routine examination, he found a detached retina in my right eye that I wasn't even aware of. He immediately jumped into action and conferred with Dr. Raul Moreno of the Florida Retina Institute where further evaluation determined that I required immediate surgery in order to save the vision in my right eye.
Fortunately for me, Dr. Tirado's knowledge, wisdom and thoroughness saved my eyesight and his continued examinations also revealed that I have lattices in both eyes due to extreme nearsightedness and astigmatism which makes me susceptible to detached retinas. Years later he discovered cataracts which began to develop caused by steroids administered during Chemotherapy. Another condition which he diagnosed was Ocular Hypertension in both eyes which is an ancillary result of Cardiovascular Disease. Ocular Hypertension, if left untreated, causes blindness and is one of the number one causes of Macular Degeneration and loss of eyesight today, especially in Geriatric patients.
So you might be asking yourself, "Is Dr. Tirado really that good of a doctor?" The answer is: YES! Without a doubt! My excellent vision today is testimony that I'm actual living, sighted proof of his skills and abilities. A word of wisdom: Finding and excellent doctor is better than finding pure gold to me, the preservation of the precious and irreplaceable gift of my eyesight I enjoy today is no less than a God given medical miracle through the continued care, hard work and expertise of Dr. Tirado. If you care about continuing to see your family, your children and grandchildren's faces and smiles or even another sunrise don't trust just anyone. Trust a doctor who takes your vision as seriously as you do. Trust Dr. Tirado!"
