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.

Dr Wallace,

Thank you with all my heart and soul earth. It is astonishing to me what I have been missing all these years, and increasingly so. Sight, what a gift you have given me. Gratitude flows from me in extraordinary amounts. Thank you for your hands, your eyes, your teamwork, and your compassion. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Then, Sunshine sent a second post to us as well:

Norma, Dr. Wallace, Ruth,. Karen, et al,

Just a note of appreciation and overflowing gratitude. I had been pretending all my life that sight was over-rated, since I mostly could not see. Truly this is a miracle I am living in. Everything is different. I feel as if I have been given a new lease on life! I am developing new confidences and competencies every day. It is such a gift you have given me Dr Wallace, and what a wonderful team of people you have created around you.

A multitude of gratitudes, and thanksgiving in my heart so full it is most difficult to put into words.
