Marlet T says:

These are my thoughts about LASIK, in my own stream-of-consciousness fashion:

Without a doubt, this is absolutely the best thing I have ever done for myself.

My vision is great under all conditions. It's great at work, outside, and at night.

I can do everything I ever wanted to do! I don't feel limited by my contacts like I used to. Even though I don't swim very much, I know that I used to be nervous about going in the water, afraid that a lens would pop out...

I feel like I got terrific care in Dr. Wallace's hands.

My only regret is that I did not do it sooner!

Dr. Wallace, thanks so much!


Doctor Wallace says:

Marlet had her LASIK in April of '00. We last saw her in October '02, two and a half years after her LASIK. She is doing absolutely fabulously.

Because of her relatively large pupils, we did choose to treat her with the Autonomous laser. We get terrific results and remarkably few complaints about night vision difficulty (which may include glare, halo, poor quality night vision, etc.) with this approach.
