The NaturalEyeCare™ Advisory Board provides expert advice to the owner-operators, Optometrist/Acupuncturist Marc Grossman, and Acupuncturist Michael Edson. Founded in 1999, Natural Eye Care educates health care professionals and the public on the role of complementary care in the treatment of eye disease. The NaturalEyeCare.com website has maintains and updated the latest in peer review research on nutrition and vision, as well as information by eye condition, support for each part of the eye, related vitamins and supplements, herbal remedies, homeopathic remedies, formulas based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, and targeted nutrition for the eyes, CDs, and DVDs, articles on natural eye care and overall health, free eye exercises; a monthly e-newsletter, free phone and email consultations and much more. Dr. Grossman has a private optometry practice working out of New Paltz and Somers, NY.
The Advisory Board is comprised mostly of Medical Doctors (M.D.s). Each has at least one specialty in ophthalmology, naturopathic medicine, alternative and complementary medicine, homeopathy, or craniosacral therapy. Marc Grossman and Michael Edson seek advice from advisory board members when needed, to support Natural Eye Care’s patients and customers.
The board has two ophthalmology specialists. Scott Forman, M.D. has been board certified in Ophthalmology since 1989. Andy Rosenfarb is a Naturopathic Doctor and acupuncturist with a background in Chinese medical ophthalmology, naturopathic medicine, and functional medicine.
