Thanks so much to Alan for the forum that let Cary get out the word for VBD. The ortho k bootcamp was great. Purchased a new topographer and CRT trial set. Also getting a scleral fitting set. Been interested in both and now myopia control! I’m so excited to be embarking on a whole new area of my career.
