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.

Kevin A says:

I can't possibly describe all the ways my life has changed since Lasik surgery with Dr. Wallace, but I will try. The most overwhelming thing is an incredible sense of freedom. No more am I a slave to glasses or contacts. I have the freedom to wake up and see the alarm clock! I can walk into my kitchen and see the coffee pot. I can work in the yard without having my glasses slip down my nose constantly. I can go out without having to worry about my contacts drying out and my eyes turning red. I can travel without having to take along an extra pair of contacts, an extra pair of glasses, plus numerous solutions, cases and drops. I can see cue cards without squinting, and spend the day in a dusty location without worrying about my contacts getting filled with grime. But one can argue that these benefits could be enjoyed with Lasik done anywhere. What no one can argue is that the care and personal attention I received at Dr. Wallace's office was sensational. I was not a number in a chain, but treated as if I were the only patient. Every question was not only answered promptly, but with true concern and attention to me and my own reasons for asking the question. I looked around and chose Dr. Wallace. It was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Doctor Wallace says:

Kevin had his laser treatment in September, 2004. He definitely got the "fairy tale" result: Virtually perfect vision, no glare/halo/night vision problems, and excellent quality of vision in all lighting situations.

Strong work, Kevin!
