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.

Doctor Wallace says:

Jeanette had her treatment in September '04. This profile was posted in August, '05.

We recommended PRK to Jeanette due to corneal thickness concerns. She did not have adequate thickness to support both creation of the LASIK flap and optical sculpting treatment for her rather high correction. PRK (also called LASEK, epi-LASIK, and ASA for ""advanced surface ablation"") is an excellent option in such circumstances.

At nearly 1 year after treatment, she is doing extremely well. Virtually perfect vision, no glare, no halo, no night vision difficulties. She is delighted, and so are we!
