I was fortunate enough to have had Dr. Carl Gruning as my eye doctor, doing vision therapy with him in my early teens. He hired me a couple of years later to assist in the office and he was my inspiration for going to optometry school, specifically where he taught, SUNY Optometry. Through the years he was a mentor for COVD Fellowship and for certification for my therapists. Back in 2013 I bought into his practice and since then have had the privilege of hearing countless stories through the years about how he touched so many people's lives and helped them to success.
I know that he has also been inspirational for many others, having served optometry in his capacity as faculty at SUNY for nearly 40 years, a member of the CAO and as president and committee member in COVD.
