Phernell envisions an impressive future for eye care technology. “There are endless possibilities for Electronic Health Records (EHR), telemedicine, the synergy of wavefront and ophthalmic optics, and more. These emerging technologies will touch every part of our lives and affect the way we practice. This is a great time to be an eye care professional!” says Phernell.
