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,
Fabulous website! I'm forwarding it on to my sight-challenged, bigbaby, "I-just-don't-know-any-doctor-I-trust" friends. Also, a huge thanks to you & the whole staff for the incredible miracle you did for Doug. He looks rather silly driving around in his convertible proudly wearing that LA Sight baseball cap with his suit on - pointing to your logo to anyone who will glance his way, but, heck happiness expresses itself in lots of forms.
Happy holidays. You made ours.


Doctor Wallace says:

Douglas was phenomenally nearsighted, starting as he did in the -15.00 range. For him, LASIK alone would not have been a good option. We recommended lens replacement surgery, a modification of modern cataract-style surgery. Due to the special needs that pertain to anyone as nearsighted as Doug, we asked him to see a retina specialist in consultation prior to planning our own surgical care.Doug had uneventful lens implant surgery in both eyes in '05. We intended to make his right eye nearsighted and have his left eye be optimally corrected for distance. He did need a tiny touch-up with LASIK for the right eye, and with this achieved his ideal target.Doug teaches Constitutional law at Pepperdine, now with the ability to see participants in the auditorium and read notes from the lectern, all without glasses. We are pleased and honored to have been able to help him in this regard.Dr. Wallace
