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:

As the well-known animator of Rugrats, Lynn's drawing says it all. Starting out so nearsighted, it's almost inconceivable to contemplate being able to see the world clearly without external devices like glasses or contacts. In a nutshell, that's exactly what LASIK does -- by sculpting the desired optical correction into the collagen layer of the cornea. Overnight Lynn went from being profoundly nearsighted to seeing clearly at all distances.
