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:

Mary originally had LASIK in May '98. She did request a touch-up for her right eye in April '02. The vision had remained remarkably stable over the four-year interval between her original care and her recent enhancement.

Now that she is in her mid-forties, she appreciates the benefits of monovision, and is quite happy with the clarity at near that is retained by her left eye.
