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, you are simply the best!!

I had been thinking about LASIK for several years but my hectic schedule (and probably my fear) kept me from making any appointment to get checked out. Then a friend had it done -- by you, of course -- and it changed his life. He was totally blown away!

So, I called up and scheduled a consultation, but I was still nervous. It's your eyes, after all!

Your whole office was great. Everyone was so nice to talk to and so pleasant to work with. The surgery was a breeze, compared to what I thought it would be. And my vision is now unbelievably clear! I think it's clearer than it ever was with either contacts or glasses.

Are you a magician, or just a really good doctor, or maybe both?

Thank you sooooooo much!

Esther J.

Doctor Wallace says:

Esther had her LASIK in March of '02. When we last saw her, in November '02 (8 months post-op) her vision was 20/15 in each eye. If we had letters that small on the eye chart, she probably would have been able to read the "20/10" letters!
