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.

Marjorie T says:

After being extremely nearsighted for over fifty years, I am overjoyed with the vision I have achieved thanks to Dr. Wallace. It is like a miracle -- and incredibly freeing -- both to be able to see well in distance and to read without glasses. Dr. Wallace and his staff are so competent and friendly -- it was a pleasure dealing with them. I highly recommend the LA Sight office to anyone considering either cataract or lasik surgery.

Sincerely,

Marjorie T.

Doctor Wallace says:

Marjorie has been nearsighted all her life. She recently began having increased difficulty with both driving and reading, due to mild cataract formation. While modern cataract and lens implant surgery can correct both near- and far-sightedness, it cannot perfectly correct astigmatism, so I discussed options with her including combining lens implant care with LASIK for ""fine-tuning"" and astigmatism correction.

Marjorie had her lens implant care in October of '05, and then her LASIK in December. She wanted to retain excellent reading vision with the left eye while having optimum distance vision with the right (we call this monovision). We do have multifocal lens implants now, but they're not *perfect* and the cost of their use is not covered completelyt by insurance carriers or Medicare.

Marjorie is now thrilled with her vision for both distance (right eye) and near (left eye).
