Dr. Anne Wishna, a Kansas City native, brings both her impressive ophthalmology skills and a passion for improving people’s lives to the Grin Eye Care team. She completed her undergraduate education at the University of Pennsylvania and earned her medical degree at Washington University in St. Louis. Dr. Wishna then went on to her ophthalmology training at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. After graduation, she split time between her private practice in Manhattan and teaching duties at the resident clinic at New York Eye and Ear. She joined Grin Eye Care in 2010.
Dr. Wishna, who is fluent in Spanish, has traveled to Ecuador and Nicaragua to participate in medical missions, and her volunteer efforts have also made an impact closer to home: she has facilitated multiple health education courses, helping young people become more knowledgeable about HIV-AIDS and substance abuse.
Patient care is Dr. Wishna's primary focus, whether it is performing routine exams, pursuing treatment for any ocular pathology, or performing surgery to enhance her patients’ vision and quality of life. She and her husband are thrilled to be able to raise their two young children surrounded by family in Kansas City.
