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.

Doctor Wallace says:

Lourdes received Crystalens implantation in her left eye in July '05. Prior to surgery she had a moderate cataract, and had difficulty passing the vision test at the DMV. AFter treatment she had noticeably improved distance vision and also was able to read ""for sustained periods"" with her left eye.

Crystalens implant, for select people, can be a fantastic alternative to reading glasses. It can afford very good to excellent distance clarity and reasonable to good reading clarity. This lens is the first of its kind in that it possesses the ability to adjust focus from far to near, based on effort of the internal focusing muscles of the eye.

Lourdes is so happy with the results of this care that she is looking forward to having similar treatment in the right eye within the next several months.
