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:

Joseph is the medical director of a large imaging center newr my office. His livelihood quite literally depends upon his ability to distinguish fine detail and subtle shades of gray on computer monitors, X rays, and imaging study printouts.

We talked at length about the potential risks and benefits of LASIK, and he decided to proceed. After LASIK, his vision took a few days to stabilize, but after about 10 days had "locked in" to a sharp, clear 20/20. 

He was so pleased that we saw and cared for his wife a few weeks later!
