Dr Marc Grossman O.D., L.Ac

Integrative Holistic Optometrist and Acupuncturist

As an integrative holistic optometrist and practitioner of Chinese medicine with over forty years experience and author of 5 books on Natural Eye Care, patients come to me from around the United States and the world because they're looking for an eye doctor that takes a holistic view of vision health. 


My goal is to develop a program for you to help prevent ,stabilize and even reverse eye diseases. In terms of being on medication, there are times a medication is needed or it may be a combination of approaches that work best for you.


I will inform and professionally guide you in your selection and use of dietary and lifestyle changes as well as nutritional and natural medicines as they may apply to your vision care needs. My recommendations are to serve only as adjunctive therapies to your already prescribed medical treatments. I can also help you understand  your diagnosis and treatment that have been recommended from your eye doctor.

I do not diagnose medical conditions over the phone. However, I may suggest further medical testing and diagnostic procedures that may be warranted and applicable in your specific case. I also welcome any questions from your health care provider(s) and encourage establishing a professional dialogue with him/her regarding your vision care needs.


If you have questions about the consultation or you want to ask about your situation specifically, please feel free to contact me at I'd be more than happy to chat with you briefly about your visual goals, and how we might be able to reach them together.


Through online consultations I’m able to work with you no matter where you’re located.

I cannot diagnose a medical condition or prescribe medications in a online consultation but I can offer a plan for helping you achieve the best vision possible 


If you know you want to work with me, you can book an initial visit now. The initial consultation includes my pre-consult review of your medical records, our time together and my follow-up recommendations.


For some clients, this session is all you need. Some clients want general advice, while others want ongoing care to really get to the root of their issues. Whatever your needs and goals are, we will work together to come up with a plan that fits into your lifestyle and budget. I do have a sliding scale available and will not turn anyone away for financial reasons.
