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.

Doctor Wallace says:

We're all still somewhat blown away by Ben's crystal-clear vision. Starting with as strong a prescription as he had, this is certainly the exception rather than the rule. "20/10" is better vision than some eagles have!

Personnel on active duty in the US armed forces should not seek vision correction through LASIK, as this procedure is not (yet, at least) approved and endorsed by the various service branches. The Navy and Army do allow service personnel to have PRK and retain active duty status (once their vision has stabilized and the eyes have healed). As a recruiter, nearing the end of his tour of duty, both Ben and his commanding officer agreed that it would be all right for him to have this care.
