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.

Doc,

The good news is, NOW I CAN SEE PERFECTLY!

The bad news is, NOW I CAN SEE PERFECTLY!

Now that I no longer wear glasses, I have to ask you about a plastic surgeon to take care of those bags under my eyes!

And now that I can read so well without reading glasses, I see how lousy the market is doing...

Despite these (temporary) issues, I still think that LASIK is one of the best things I have done for myself, ever.

I enclose a photo from a country club membership card, to show you what I used to look like with glasses.
