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:

Matt and his wife Anetta are both teachers, who live in San Diego. They were recommended to our office by Matt's sister, who had laser treatment here several years ago. It is a pleasure and delight to see two people so obviously in love with each other and with their work. We owe teachers a tremendous debt of gratitude for the contributions they make, and the flak they take, in our current educational system. We are almost as pleased as they are with the results of their care.
