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. 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.Dr. Grossman lectures nationally on topics such as Natural Vision Improvement, Psycho-Emotional Aspects of Visual Conditions, Vision & Learning, Holistic Integrative Visual Therapy, and Chinese Medicine and Vision Care.
