Marc R. Grossman, O.D., L.Ac., doctor of optometry and New York State licensed acupuncturist is coauthor of four books, including: Greater Vision—A Comprehensive Program for Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Clarity. Dr. Grossman founded the Rye Learning Center in 1980, a multidisciplinary center for learning problems. In 1996, he cofounded Integral Health Associates in New Paltz, New York, and in 1999 cofounded Natural Eye Care, Inc. His background includes degrees in optometry, biology, physical education and learning disabilities, coupled with yoga, bioenergetics, nutrition, Chinese medicine and acupuncture, the Alexander technique and Feldenkrais. Dr. Grossman's practice is based on the belief that vision is not static and does not have to degenerate. Vision has the ability to improve, and there are practical alternatives for helping vision without resorting to stronger prescriptions for eyeglasses or contact lenses, or submitting to surgery.
