Dr. Thompson continues, "Teaching makes me a better surgeon.As a teacher you get asked questions from astute surgeons from all around the world.I feel I have a responsibility to be on the cutting edge, to learn what's on the horizon so I can responsibly teach laser vision correction.It's pretty rare to hear a question we haven't heard before."
