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 performed initial surgery for Bruce in October, '00. He recovered excellent vision, but this drifted slightly from 'perfect'. We provided enhancement care for him almost exactly a year later, and he has retained superb vision since.

Bruce was aware that his reading vision would not be as clear (without glasses) after LASIK, as it had been before surgery. He was very motivated to obtain unaided distance vision that was as sharp as possible, and was OK with using reading glasses for close work. He is quite happy with the results of his care.
