Summary/services offered:
EyeCare Associates and Dr. Randy Schulman have been serving Fairfield County as a leading provider of optometry services, vision care products, vision therapy, sports vision, neuro-optometric rehabilitation and preventive eye care for nearly 30 years. With offices in Trumbull, Southport, Norwalk and Stamford, the experienced team of doctors and therapists helps patients of all ages with their vision needs, including those with complex vision needs such as specialty contact lenses, dry eye, reading and learning challenges, brain injury and strabismus.

What drew you to this profession? 
When I was 15 years old, I worked for Dr. Carl Gruning, a behavioral optometrist in Fairfield. I was amazed at how much better the patients got after doing vision therapy. The children were more focused and better behaved, and the adults were happier. As a behavioral optometrist, I understand that, “how you see is how you be,” and vision can be changed for the better.

How does your work differ from others in your profession?
As an integrative optometrist, I am looking at how the visual system functions. I look at how vision is connected to physical, emotional and mental health and overall wellness. Treatment based on the whole person includes prescribing optimal glasses, as well as giving lifestyle modifications and visual wellness
suggestions.

What should someone expect from working with you?
Patients should expect a careful assessment of symptoms, visual demands, health and wellness, visual function and prescription needs. We also give recommendations for optimizing vision and quality of life.

What is most important for Natural Awakenings’ readers to know?
We place high emphasis on education and offer internships for optometry students from around the country and plan on adding another SUNY Optometry resident. We are happy to speak to groups about vision and are actively seeking individuals who want to join our team.
