    Friends and Colleagues, we are living in eventful times as we 1) Work with our medical colleagues to repeal the sustainable growth rate (SGR) and address the ongoing threat of drastic reductions in Medicare reimbursement; 2) Continue to explore a limited initiative with the American Academy of Optometry while maintaining our steadfast commitment to fighting expansion of optometric scope of practice; 3) Introduce the IRIS™ Registry as an important tool in measuring and improving quality of care for our patients; and 4) Prepare ourselves and our practices for the implementation of ICD-10 on Oct. 1 of this year.
