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.

 Dear Dr. Wallace,

Please allow me to once again thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful gift you gave me last year.  Indeed I cannot think of anyting more precious than the gift of sight!

It was a true pleasure to get to know you and your exceptional team of professionals.  My vision is unbelievable and I can hardly remember what life was with thick glasses, contact lenses and all!

I wish you the very best, now and always.

Stefano

Doctor Wallace says:

Stefano's prescription in his left eye was well within the range treatable by LASIK, and with this care he recovered excellent vision. Because his right eye had a very nearsighted prescription and relatively thin cornea, we advised phakic lens implantation there. We also performed LASIK in the right eye to correct the astigmatism. Hopefully, by early 2007, phakic lenses will be able to corect both nearsightedness and astigmatism.

Stefano has done extremely well and feels like a kid with a new bike every morning, since he doesn't have to put on glasses to see anymore!

Dr. Wallace
