I am the perfect person to give you a testimonial. I am 36, very active (I have two young children), and am scared to death of pain. I spent two years considering the LASIK procedure and did my homework. I was referred to Dr. Wallace and felt very comfortable with Ruth, Dr. Wallace, and the entire staff. I scheduled to have it as soon as possible so I did not have to think about it. Why did I wait?

The whole thing took about 30 minutes and the only real pain I felt was the tape coming off of my eyebrows. I cheated with the mask and saw immediate improvement. I had no side effects and started in Left Field for the Bad Dogs three days later. It was a night game so I was a little worried about the “halo effect” but I could pick the ball right up. Racquetball worked out just as well.

I started with glasses in College and had hard lenses, soft lenses, and glasses in the time since. I ripped them, lost them, broke them and that was a good day. Why did I wait so long?

Do your homework and I think you will have the same conclusion I had that Dr. Wallace was the right person for the job. A special bonus is that he is also a nice guy.
