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:

Michael had his LASIK in December '04. He achieved incredibly good vision almost right away, and has maintained this *bionic* clarity for his entire first year after treatment. He has no glare, halo, night vision problems, or any of the other issues that sometimes affect patietns after their care.

We will take some of the credit, we will let the laser technology take some of the credit, and we will wish Michael all the best going forward. I expect him to keep great vision for years.
