Peggy M says:



This is just plain incredible. Now I can train hard, which for me means running, swimming, and/or biking for more than 6 hours per day; all without worrying about my eyes or my contacts.

And I can swim, even opening my eyes underwater, without fear that a lens will fall out.

This is way cool!

Doctor Wallace says:

Peggy had her LASIK in September of '99. The most recent "post-op" numbers below are from May of '01. I have suggested that she would be able to obtain even sharper vision should she desire, by having enhancement or 'touch-up' care. She said that she would let me know when she has a break in her training schedule to fit me in. She lives on the east coast, but has family here in LA, so I know she'll let me know when she's ready.
