Excellent teaching tool to review the basics in an entertaining way. These subjects can be mastered–your videos help instill those first steps of confidence to go deeper.

I love your impressive lectures! Those are really useful and quite easy to understand the theories for Mandarin optometry students.

Excellent! Informative and entertaining lecture series, thank you. I am currently working on a project aimed towards the semi/full-automation of slit lamps for telemedicine applications. I’m interested in knowing more about the video sources you used in your presentation.

Thanks for this great website. It really helps people new to the industry understand how things work!
I am part of the Rhode Island Optometric Association continuing education committee. I was interested in finding out if you provide webinars or live lectures for optometric continuing education (CE credits). We are looking for speakers for 2015, and you are in high demand!
Thank you, Audra

I love your lectures. They’re aimed waaaay above a medical student’s level, yet remain so easy to follow. They’re fun, with just the right level of childish humour and I just wanted to say thanks really – stay awesome!

I’m a third year medical student from India. I discovered you on YouTube and have been reading ophtha book for a while now. Today I went to an ophthalmology lecture taken by our HOD, and he played your video on optics in the class! It was like seeing an old friend unexpectedly:)
The world needs more educators like you. Thank you so much. People like you keep my morale high about becoming a doctor.
