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:

Kelly had very large pupils (8.0mm both eyes), which is more common in the 'under 30' patient group than in more ""chronologically mature"" folks. We took special steps to treat her with a large optical zone system, and she has done very well.

Her LASIK was done in August '01, and she was most recently seen in August, '02. She may choose to have enhancement care so that her night vision can be ""crystal"" (now it is a little fuzzy due to her mild current prescription).
