Dr. Henry is a Clinical Assistant Professor as well as a Primary Care Extern Preceptor for The Ohio State University College of Optometry.

Dr. Henry was the first optometrist in the nation to use optometric software for e-prescribing. He is very proud to have co-written three national lecture series and lectured to more than 12,000 optometrists and optometric staff members over the past few years.

Henry can almost always be found with their two children Jacob (10) and Jillian (8).
