As many of our long-time readers know, I’m a Houston native, and lived and worked in Houston for the majority of my time with 20/20 before a recent move to Dallas.

It’s been an extremely troubling time, but I’m grateful everyone I know came out unscathed, and that, true to its nature, Houston has already begun the road back to recovery. It’s also been heartwarming to see that something else I hold so dear to my heart—the world of optical—has stepped up to lend a helping hand, with numerous individuals in the Optisphere pitching in on a variety of relief efforts to make sure Houstonians have clear vision with which to begin rebuilding our city.
