Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make The Eye Care Center the leading provider of vision care products and services in East Metro area.

Dr. David Grosswald

Dr. David Grosswald studied premedical sciences at the University of Georgia from 1984 to 1988. He obtained a Bachelor of Science in Physiologic Optics in 1990 and earned his Doctorate of Optometry from Southern College of Optometry in 1992.

Dr. Grosswald has, throughout its long history, remained the founder and director of the practice. In the early years of The Eye Center’s development, he had a special interest in better serving patients with the latest diagnostic and practice management technologies. Utilizing these technologies has been a progressive process with the goal of providing more efficient care while assuring a more impressionable experience for the patient.

Dr. Grosswald has gained extensive experience in providing specialty contact lens services with orthokeratology and scleral lens designs. His lens designs are primarily achieved via Wave Custom design software. This software permits infinitely adjustable fitting and optical parameters necessary for achieving success with challenging cases. Dr. Grosswald is recognized among the specialty contact lens professionals as an “opinion leader” and pioneer of lens design concepts. He is a frequent lecturer with the professional educational symposiums on topics such as custom contact lens designs and practice management concepts.

After many years of seeing “sick” patients with equally “sick eyes”, Dr. Grosswald made a decision to earnestly determine the root physical causes for many of the eye conditions we see on a daily basis.

He has become a voracious scholar of integrative medicine and how it applies to more comprehensive management of conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, glaucoma and other commonly seen ocular problems. His goal is to promote and foster overall patient wellness to assure optimal eye health and visual function.

Dr. David Grosswald is a third generation native of Atlanta, Georgia. He enjoys time with his wife, Suzanne, and four sons.
