In practice since 1980, his comprehensive background includes degrees in Optometry, Biology, Physical Education, and Learning Disabilities, coupled with yoga, bioenergetics, nutrition, Chinese medicine, and acupuncture. This orientation provides the foundation for an integrated approach to vision and its influence on the body, mind and spirit of each patient. He is dedicated to helping those with a wide range of conditions from myopia and dry eyes to potentially vision threatening diseases such as macular degeneration and glaucoma.

Dr. Grossman is a co-founder of, the largest consumer eyecare resource of its kind, and a respected author of five books, most recently co-author of the acclaimed “Natural Eye Care, Your Guide to Healthy Eyes and Healing” (published Jan. 2019).

Dr. Grossman's practice is based on the belief that vision is not static and it need not degenerate. Vision has the ability to improve, and there are practical alternatives for helping vision…Poor vision is not just physical and can be improved at any age. According to recent scientific and psychological research on the human visual system, emotional and mental stress, childhood issues and environmental factors have a significant effect on vision. Therefore, to improve vision, the condition as a whole person needs to be addressed including diet, attitude, work, school, environment, physical and emotional issues.
