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.

Nancy F says:

The truth is, Dr. Wallace is really a wizard. I know perfectly well that no mere mortal could have cured my cataracts and allowed me to discard my glasses after 60 years of dependency.

To add to the spell, when 3 years later I developed difficulty with vision in one eye, he took me back to the surgery, sat me down, and in 5 minutes, cured the problem.

I ask you--is that human? or magic???

Doctor Wallace says:

In this town, even a 'wizard' needs good PR....(:->).

Nancy is very kind and she points out that good cataract surgery can both restore visual clarity and eliminate preexisting refractive errors.

She had cataract and lens implant surgery in October '99 (right eye) and in the left eye one month later. She recovered excellent unaided vision in both eyes. In February '03 she noticed some blurring in the left eye, rather like looking through slightly frosted glass. An "after-cateract" was identified and easily treated with a special 'YAG' laser. Within minutes, the cloudiness had completely disappeared.
