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:

To say the least, Chris presented several challenges. She had a very strong correction in the right eye and a moderate correction in the left. In addition, she had a mild cataract in the right eye.

I advised cataract-style surgery for the right eye and LASIK for the left. She had her care in June of '99, with good results. We chose to follow up the initial care with enhancements for both eyes several months later.

Her vision has remained sharp, and her prescription very stable over the two years since her care. We most recently saw her in August '02, and she is still extremely happy!
