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.

Del D says:

My eye sight is nearly perfect. I am in my late 60's, and I can say for a certainty that I can now see better than when I was a young man. It's frightening to undergo eye surgery, but you and your wonderful staff took my fears away and made it a great experience.

I appreciate the after surgery phone calls telling me "that everything went right." This is the first time in my life that a doctor called to reassure me that the operation was a success.  

You have some of the most up-to-date equipment I have ever seen. After all the testing, I know that my eyes are very healthy; and that the cataract operations by your capable hands were very successful.

You and your staff are one of a kind.

Thank you so much,

Del D.

Doctor Wallace says:

I knew Del would do very nicely with CrystaLens care.  He now has great unaided distance clarity and excellent intermediate vision.  He can read the newspaper, work at his computer, and read a menu even in a dimly-lit restaurant, with no problem.  He loves it that he he can drive a car or play golf, also without glasses.  This is one of the true marvels of the new style lens implants.
