Patient Profiles 

One of the best ways to learn about vision correction is to talk to, read about, and learn from people who have already had similar care. We invite you to browse here a very broad selection of profiles about our patients.

Our profiles include data on:

  1. Unaided vision before and after treatment;

  2. Prescription before and after treatment;

  3. Age, occupation, and photo (if provided);

  4. Certain special case concerns;

  5. Comments from patients; and

  6. Comments from Dr. Wallace.

We invite you to browse by the various treatment types listed in the 'right rail' (column at right).  Or, to review all patient profiles, simply select one of the featured patients, then the "Next" or "Previous" tabs on the individual profile pages.

These are real people, and their letters speak for themselves. To respect and protect the privacy of these patients, we have identified them only by first name in the letters published here.

I am the perfect person to give you a testimonial. I am 36, very active (I have two young children), and am scared to death of pain. I spent two years considering the LASIK procedure and did my homework. I was referred to Dr. Wallace and felt very comfortable with Ruth, Dr. Wallace, and the entire staff. I scheduled to have it as soon as possible so I did not have to think about it. Why did I wait?

The whole thing took about 30 minutes and the only real pain I felt was the tape coming off of my eyebrows. I cheated with the mask and saw immediate improvement. I had no side effects and started in Left Field for the Bad Dogs three days later. It was a night game so I was a little worried about the “halo effect” but I could pick the ball right up. Racquetball worked out just as well.

I started with glasses in College and had hard lenses, soft lenses, and glasses in the time since. I ripped them, lost them, broke them and that was a good day. Why did I wait so long?

Do your homework and I think you will have the same conclusion I had that Dr. Wallace was the right person for the job. A special bonus is that he is also a nice guy.
