Envision recently welcomed Anita Campbell, M.D., as guest speaker for the Envision University Low Vision Grand Rounds event, “Case Studies in Glaucoma.” Dr. Campbell is a board-eligible ophthalmologist with Grene Vision Group in Wichita, Kansas. She specializes in adult glaucoma, including medical and surgical aspects, as well as cataract and implant surgery. Nearly 70 doctors, occupational therapists and other healthcare specialists from around the region attended. Grene Vision Group was the evening's sponsor.

As a preview to the event, Dr. Campbell and Envision’s Dr. Donald Fletcher, were interviewed on Q92 in special recognition of Glaucoma Awareness Month. According to the National Eye Institute, glaucoma is a leading cause of vision loss and blindness in the United States. People are often unaware that glaucoma has no symptoms in its early stages. Dr. Campbell and Dr. Fletcher provided public awareness information about detecting and treating the disease.
