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:

Pragna had LASIK originally in August '03. Her left eye was spectacularly clear almost from the moment of surgery. By comparison, the right eye lagged a little in sharpness, so we performed enhancement care in January '04. She is now superbly sharp and clear in both eyes, and is extremely happy.

Pragna also is aware of slight dryness affecting the right eye somewhat more than the left. We reviewed all the pertinent factors contributing to dryness (as listed on our Managing Dry Eye and Optimizing Eye Comfort after LASIK page, and did place a collagen punctal plug in the tear duct opening on the right lower eyelid. She has not been significantly bothered by dry eye symptoms since.
