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:

Jim came to us interested in vision correction options appropriate to his military career. While the current US Army policy allows corrective surgery by either PRK or LASIK, a combination of factors in Jim's particular case suggested PRK might be a better option. We performed his care in January of '05.

Jim is a shy and modest fellow who hates to be photographed, so the photo does not do justice to how happy he is with his vision.

We salute you and bid you good luck and success in your military tour and all future endeavors.

Dr. Wallace
