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:

Tyson had his laser treatment in September '04. He did have rather large pupils (8.0mm in darkness) and we counseled him accordingly. We included him in a research study evaluating whether there was any advantage to ""wavefront-guided"" treatment compared to ""conventional"" treatment with the LADAR laser, in light of his large pupils. We treated one eye with Custom Cornea (""wavefront-guided"") treatment (this allows treatment out to a 6.5mm optical zone), and the other with conventional treatment (which allows treatment out to an 8.0mm optical zone).

He did extremely well in both eyes, and has excellent vision without any distractign glare, halo, or night vision difficulty in either eye, now over one year out from his care.
