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:

Blair came to us having been referred by a good friend. I explained that with his very strong nearsightedness, there were at least three options: LASIK, surface treatment (PRK) and Visian ICL. Fortunately, he had very adequate corneal tissue thickness and perfectly normal corneal curvature, so I felt he'd do very nicely with LASIK. Now more than a month out from his care (as of October, '12) he is delighted. He says that the only problem he has is that he still occasionally thinks he has his contact lenses in, and at the end of the day finds himself occasionally poking himself in the eye to remove them (:->).
