About orthokeratology, he says, "I'm very excited about it, especially what it means for children now that myopia control has become an additional benefit as a result of recent technology breakthroughs. I especially enjoy seeing the children the first morning after wearing the lenses. They're all smiles. Every nearsighted child should be wearing these. The parents see how successful they are and then they want them too. This really is exciting."
