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:

Stephen was referred to me by his optometrist. He was of the opinion that contacts were "a pain to deal with." He is an avid athlete, playing golf, tennis and basketball regularly. Both he and his optometrist recognized that he would be an excellent candidate for LASIK,

Stephen has done well, as would be expected. He denies any problems or difficulties including glare, halo, or night vision difficulty, His golf game is as good as ever, and he is now able to enjoy playing tennis under the lights, where he was not very comfortable before.
