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.

Hi, Dr. Wallace,

Sorry for the time it took to get this to you.  I did want to write you a quick note regarding my lasik surgery. It has been a year since the surgery, and as I type this note, my vision is still AMAZINGLY BETTER.  It measures 20/15 in the left and 20/20 in the right, not too bad…

As a pilot, I was very concerned with the affects to my vision and contemplated the decision for a long time. Now, I don’t look back and am so happy with the results. The surgery was so quick and my improvement in vision was instantaneous. During my last visit we discussed my recent issue with “floaters,” a term I have become so familiar with recently.

I am now more comfortable with the floaters since my last visit and try not to notice them. Just an odd thing, but I know it had nothing to do with my LASIK Surgery.


Thanks for all your counseling and for the amazing surgery!
