Hi, Dr. Wallace,

Sorry for the time it took to get this to you.  I did want to write you a quick note regarding my lasik surgery. It has been a year since the surgery, and as I type this note, my vision is still AMAZINGLY BETTER.  It measures 20/15 in the left and 20/20 in the right, not too bad…

As a pilot, I was very concerned with the affects to my vision and contemplated the decision for a long time. Now, I don’t look back and am so happy with the results. The surgery was so quick and my improvement in vision was instantaneous. During my last visit we discussed my recent issue with “floaters,” a term I have become so familiar with recently.

I am now more comfortable with the floaters since my last visit and try not to notice them. Just an odd thing, but I know it had nothing to do with my LASIK Surgery.


Thanks for all your counseling and for the amazing surgery!
