Vision Source’s John McCall Appointed to the University of Houston’s Board of Regents


KINGWOOD, Texas—Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has appointed Vision Source’s John McCall, OD, to the University of Houston (UH) System Board of Regents for a term set to expire Aug. 31, 2025, according to a Vision Source announcement on Friday. An independent governing body which oversees the administration of education at the university, the Board of Regents is of critical importance to the public university. “This appointment is a great honor and I look forward to serving the university over these coming six years,” McCall said in the announcement.

McCall, owner of Crockett Eye Clinic in Crocket, Texas, is senior vice president of vendor relations and one of the original Vision Source doctor leaders who was instrumental in the foundation of the company. He also is a former president of the Texas Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association, diplomat and member of the Louisiana State Optometry Association. McCall received a Bachelor of Science and a Doctor of Optometry from UH.

“This appointment is very well deserved and reflective of Dr. McCall’s commitment and appreciation for his alma mater, the University of Houston,” Vision Source chief medical officer Dr. Amir Khoshnevis said in the announcement. “It is also the latest in a long history of achievement by Vision Source optometrists. Since the company was founded by Dr. Glenn Ellisor in 1991, we have become what we are today by attracting the best of the best.”

McCall’s appointment follows an extensive history of industry accomplishments by Vision Source membership, the announcement noted. Vision Source optometrists represent some of the most influential eyecare professionals in the country, including 11 former American Optometric Association (AOA) presidents with practices featuring the latest in technology, products, and innovative diagnostic systems. Members often lead their communities by holding public office, serving as officers in professional societies, and donating their time and talents to charitable organizations.
