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 V says:

My farsighted vision is incredible now. I can see landscapes and foliage with such clarity.  I was able to function well with my vision prior to LASIK. However, I was missing so much of the beauty and detail of my surroundings. While I have noticed a slight decline in my reading vision, all I really have to do is move my arms slightly father away to read clearly. I consider this trade for my increased distance clarity to be well worth it.""

Best Regards,


Doctor Wallace says:

For most pursuits, Kevin's unaided vision would have been considered acceptable, even without correction. But not for his avocation of target shooting. Paper targets at any distance were not perfectly clear, causing him to have difficulty sighting.

I knew that his distance prescription would be easily correctable with LASIK, but at 48 years of age his reading clarity would be adversely impacted if we cleared up the distance sharpness, due to presbyopia. He acknowledged and accepted this consequence of vision correction care happily, knowing that the would likely need reading glasses for close viewing after treatment.

On his first post-op visit (day 1 after treatment) Kevin was thrilled, reading the tiniest letters on the eye chart. He was better than 20/15 in one eye, and almost 20/10 in the other! He couldn't wait to get to the range to see how much more fun it would be to do target practice.

We are delighted for Kevin and wish him the greatest success in competition target shooting.
