On May 20, 2011, Dr. Miyasaka graduated with his doctorate from the Southern California College of Optometry (SCCO). The moment was even more special as Dr. Matsushima was given the opportunity to present her son with his doctor's hood, an honor reserved only for parents who are optometrists. This day also marked the 30th anniversary of Dr. Matsushima's graduation from SCCO in 1981.
