Doctor Wallace says:

Steve is a very demanding fellow in an extremely demanding profession.  Air traffic controllers need to pass very strict vision tests to maintain certification, for obvious reasons.  Steve wanted to be able to pass without wearing glasses or contacts, and came to us for a consultation.  He chose to have his care in September, '06.

At this writing, now about 6 months after treatment, Steve's vision is an awesome 20/15 (better than 20/20) in each eye.  He's thrilled with his results, as are we.  He rode in today on his bike (he rides a Kawasaki) and looked like a super-hero when he walked in to the office.
