Karl J. Henson, CO
Born and raised in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Karl Henson graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in aviation. He went on to become a commercially rated pilot, but his own childhood-onset eye condition limited his career. Realizing a passion for the science and medicine relating to his condition and a desire to help others with similar problems, Mr. Henson completed a two-year training program at Washington University in St. Louis to become a certified orthoptist. He moved to Fort Worth in 2001.
Having had his own eye alignment issues and surgical correction, Mr. Henson provides a unique perspective in the care of children with similar challenges. His passion and experience have led him to publish several papers on his work, and he has been invited to speak before the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
