Your three wishes? 
  1. To find of cure for myopia - both clinical and societal
  2. To bring new enabling technology and innovation to the developing world in the fight against blindness
  3. To never retire
The funniest moment of your career?  

Immigrating to this country with just $250 in my pocket and immediately losing half of it to an imposter skycap at JFK airport.

The most unexpected turn your career took? 

Inadvertently detouring into the world of biotech and medtech innovation and finding a new and exciting career path.
