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!
