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 just say Caroline for her 1-year anniversary. She is still elated with the results of her care, and with good reason. She has virtually perfect vision, with no glare, no halo, and good night vision. Of course she has excellent "walking around" vision as well.

Caroline's situation is remarkable considering the very large nearsighted correction she had before treatment. In her case a combination of factors helped create such a good outcome: Above-normal corneal thickness to start with, a careful surgical team, and of course a good laser.

We are all very proud of her!

Dr. Wallace
