Hi, my name is Chris Kenric. I'm in private practice just north of Boston, and at Academy this year, I'll be talking about perioperative management of corneal crosslinking.

I think that this topic is very important for optometrists because it's something that we're doing collaboratively with ophthalmology. It's something that is undergoing ongoing research and gaining popularity.

But I think it's also important for us that when we develop those intra-professional relationships, that we identify ideal candidates, that we optimize those candidates, and that we take home and realize that just because we can do something, doesn't mean we need to do something and our first obligation is to our patients, and we want to make sure that we're providing responsible recommendations to them.
