Prevent Blindness has chosen Glenn Ellisor, O.D., (top) and Jim Greenwood of Vision Source as the recipients of the 2019 Prevent Blindness Persons of Vision Award. The awards will be presented on March 21, 2019, at the Prevent Blindness Person of Vision Dinner at the Edison Ballroom, New York City, in conjunction with Vision Expo East.
The Prevent Blindness Person of Vision Award recognizes an individual or organization whose inspired outlook champions healthy vision and its importance for a healthy life.
Dr. Ellisor, executive chairman and founder of Vision Source, has been dedicated to providing quality vision and eye care to his patients since 1985. He currently owns and operates two practices in Kingwood, TX. In 1991, Dr. Ellisor founded Vision Source, the nation’s leading network of more than 4,700 private practice optometrists. In addition to treating patients, he continues to lead the Vision Source board of directors and provide counsel on strategic direction at Vision Source.
Greenwood joined Vision Source as resident and CEO in 2013. At Vision Source, he is responsible for the development and execution of strategic plans that enable the company to fulfill its mission to the private practice optometrists it serves, and the 16 million patients Vision Source doctors treat each year.
“Companies like Vision Source provide people across the country with the services needed to preserve healthy eyesight,” said Jeff Todd, president and CEO of Prevent Blindness. “By presenting Dr. Glenn Ellisor and Jim Greenwood with the 2019 Persons of Vision Award, we proudly recognize their important efforts to improve vision and protect the gift of sight.”
