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:

Brian was a real challenge, partly because he came to see me from his home in Hong Kong and had only a short interval within which he could have his corrective care.

He knew he was very nearsighted -- probably not a good candidate for LASIK -- but he was not aware of his very significant astigmatism as well. We had corresponded by email and phone before his consultation but I had not anticipated his having such high-magnitude astigmatism in combination with higher-range myopia. We had discussed and planned phakic lens implantation, now one of the most optically acceptable methods of correcting higher-range myopia, but this refractive combination required LASIK as well.

We initially performed LASIK for his astigmatism, then followed this with VeriSyse phakic lens implant surgery. He did phenomenally well and returned to Hong Kong supremely happy. I have put him in touch with several specialists in H.K. should he need any follow-up care and not be available to me, but I do not anticipate this need.
