It is my honor and pleasure to serve as associate editor for the cornea and anterior segment section for odsonfb.com. When asked to serve in this role by our fearless leader, Dr. Alan Glazier, I wondered what I would be able to contribute to our profession in regard to anterior segment in this format that was in some way different than other professional communication formats out there such as journals, periodicals, e-newsletters, etc.

All I had to do was to look at how ODs on Facebook has changed the way optometrists connect with each other. Alan has dramatically changed how optometrists interact. My professional background throughout my career has always been involved with medicine and ophthalmology. Starting with my residency in ocular disease and continuing on through my academic affiliations and my incorporation of ophthalmology sub-specialties within our optometric practice, I have always been impressed by the interactive nature of traditional medicine (both within ophthalmology and between various medical specialties).
