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.

Dr. Wallace,

I knew that I needed cataract surgery when I felt blinded by oncoming headlights and could not make out signs on the freeway. In the three months before seeking your consultation, I had two near misses when I did not see pedestrians in the glare of the sun. For me, cataract surgery was a safety issue as well as a comfort issue.

I expected to be able to see clearly after the surgery. What I did not expect was such unbelieveable change in the clarity and quality of my sight after the surgery. The world around me looked luminous. Colors were brilliant, literally glowing, and I could see the smallest details in my environment. I also regained the ability to read for hours on end with no visual tiredness.

Thank you for a job well done! Best wishes and thank you again. See you in 6 months.

Diane P.

P.S. Thanks also for taking such nice pictures of me!
