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.

I used to do some modeling. I never really liked how I looked in glasses, and I always hated those indentation marks on my nose. I've known my optometrist for years, and he has always given me good advice. I asked him about the new laser treatments, and was surprised to hear how positive and enthusiastic he was. He and Dr. Wallace worked together during and after my laser care, which made me feel very comfortable. I now do not need glasses! What a pleasure. I'm a chicken at heart, and I was pretty worried something might go wrong. The LASIK went so smoothly I felt silly afterwards being so concerned. Dr. Wallace and his team at the laser center were great.
