Meeting Ryan Leaf

Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf had an appointment at the Optometry Practice of Dr. Alex Corbin Liu. Ryan was scheduled for an eye exam followed by him choosing new eyewear.

Ryan was the second overall pick in the 1998 NFL draft. He didn’t live up to the hype and according to NFL top 10, is the biggest draft bust in NFL history.

After his short playing career, Ryan’s life got a bit out of control. He began having issues with substance abuse and even did a stint in prison. Ryan has now cleaned up his life and is dedicating himself to helping others. He is currently the program ambassador for Transcend Recovery Community.

Meeting Zach Banner

USC offensive tackle Zach Banner came to the Optometry Practice of Dr. Alex Corbin Liu for an eye exam. The 6-foot-8, and roughly 375 pound Trojan is the biggest athlete to ever come to the office.
