    Berkeley, California  Memories of Sweet Caroline, and of Oakland’s Chinatown  by Ben Fong-Torres   Caroline Chin was a neighbor and classmate of mine when we grew up in Chinatown, Oakland, in the ‘50s. We went to Lincoln Elementary, Westlake Jr High, and Chinese school together.

    Posted by AC Team

    Advertisement Do you wear glasses? You may be able to free yourself from glasses and contact lenses by using a non-surgical procedure called Ortho-K.  Ortho-K has been an authorzied vision improvement procedure for more than thirty years. The procedure improves your eyesight while you sleep. Specially manufactured high-tech, therapeutic Ortho-K lenses gently reshape the eyes front curvature, improving your eyesight, including nearsightedness and astigmatism.  Most of the visual changes occur rapidly with Ortho-K patients during the first few weeks.
