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:

Jessica had her laser treatment in May '04. Being a nurse, she had very high expectations about the precision of the procedure, sterile technique, and all the little details that separate a very good surgeon from others. She wanted it *perfect*.

Her teratment went smoothly. On her first day visit after surgery, she saw beautifully in the right eye, but the left was blurry. We noticed that some wrinkles had developed in the LASIK flap, and smoothed them out right away. This allowed her to recover excellent vision in the left eye with no long-term adverse effects.

She is still thrilled with her results, and very grateful for the care we provided her.
