From the CEwire2021 May Livestream, Dr. Craig Thomas calls in to discuss a number of issues:

1) What Private Equity is doing to the field, and how it will change the profession (for better or worse) into the future. He also discusses an optometrist shortage.

2) On why ODs need to keep current with new tech, and the latest "toy" he acquired, the Phoenix Meibography Workstation by Marco:

3) On COVID-19, and the impact it has had on the community where he practices:

CEwire2021 is back on June 12 & 13 -- it's not too late to earn up to 64 COPE approved credits. Join us!
Thanks again to Craig for taking the time to speak with us. Was especially interesting to hear his thoughts about PE and the long-term ramifications for everyone "left behind".
