Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wallace "Dr. Wallace is a board-certified ophthalmologist specializing in LASIK, cataract surgery, lens implants and other methods of vision correction. He is a firm believer in and advocate for public accountability of professionals including doctors and surgeons. Medicine is at its core a service profession, not unlike the hotel and restaurant business. Yet the consumer of medical care has no tools to help guide medical care decisions like a Michelin hotel guide, a Zagat restaurant survey, or the statistical equivalent of a baseball player's batting average. He has helped implement surgical outcome tracking and reporting systems within his private practice and for other LASIK providers, to both monitor and improve results for recipients of laser care, and provide the public with accurate statistics about safety, efficacy, stability and accuracy of laser vision care."
