Patient Profiles 

One of the best ways to learn about vision correction is to talk to, read about, and learn from people who have already had similar care. We invite you to browse here a very broad selection of profiles about our patients.

Our profiles include data on:

  1. Unaided vision before and after treatment;

  2. Prescription before and after treatment;

  3. Age, occupation, and photo (if provided);

  4. Certain special case concerns;

  5. Comments from patients; and

  6. Comments from Dr. Wallace.

We invite you to browse by the various treatment types listed in the 'right rail' (column at right).  Or, to review all patient profiles, simply select one of the featured patients, then the "Next" or "Previous" tabs on the individual profile pages.

These are real people, and their letters speak for themselves. To respect and protect the privacy of these patients, we have identified them only by first name in the letters published here.

Lee C says:

Dear Dr. Wallace,

Words are funny things. Useful, troublesome, difficult and elusive, they frequently fail to express one's deepest sentiments when you need them most. My delay in writing is due to the difficulty I found choosing the precise words to fully express my gratitude and wonder at the cataract surgery you performed.

Thanks to you, I can now see like nobody's business. I can see near, I can see far. I can see near and far at the same time. I can see colors in a way that makes me wonder if I ever saw colors before.

Thank you with all my heart for restoring the windows to my soul with skill, grace and sensitivity. I shall never forget you.

Most sincerely,

Lee C.

Doctor Wallace says:

Lee was originally slightly farsighted, and was uncomfortable with the quality of her vision. She was referred to me by her optometrist for cataract care. Due to her desire to see clearly at distance in one eye, and to be able to read clearly with the other, we performed cataract and lens implant surgery targeting monovision as a result.

Lee is very clearly pleased with her visual results. No doubt between acting gigs she could easily find work as a writer! (I only hope her letter to me is not a work of fiction) (:->)
