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.

Dear Dr. Wallace,

Thank you for making these old eyes young! Mere words can never convey my gratitude.

You are an angel, and as I stated previously, "I love you more than my hat!"

Also, I adore my new Teddy Bear. I've named him after you. He is a wonderful reminder of this unforgettable experience.

Love,
Bunny

Doctor Wallace says:

Bunny had cataract surgery with lens implantation in her right eye, along with incision-type surgery to correct her astigmatism (we call this astigmatic keratotomy). In certain individuals, this type of care may be preferable to LASIK, especially in the case of persons above 65 years of age who have early cataract changes already.

Cataract surgery with astigmatic keratotomy is not always as precise as LASIK. And the attendant risks are slightly greater as the surgery is done inside the eye. But properly done, it affords excellent visual results, and Bunny is living proof thereof!

Bunny has returned to rollerblading on the strand and ballroom dancing in the evenings. She is a delightful bundle of energy and I am glad that her eyesight is now no longer slowing her down in the least.
