EyeCare Associates is a perfect melding of multiple optometric practices. Drs. Carl Gruning and Lee Mellinger established the practice in Fairfield over 45 years ago. Dr. Randy Schulman has been in practice in Norwalk and Trumbull for 25 years, and Dr. Stephen Carr has been practicing in Trumbull for over 20 years. With their combined expertise, Drs. Schulman and Carr formed EyeCare Associates, PC, along with Dr. Narvan Bennett. Together, we focus on providing exceptional vision care in the areas of contact lenses, ocular disease, and behavioral and integrative care for patients of all ages.
Our goal is to ensure that patients gain a thorough understanding of how to maintain healthy eyes and vision, while being treated with the utmost care. We perform routine eye exams and advanced testing, diagnose functional vision problems, prescribe eyeglasses, fit contact lenses, and offer vision therapy. We encourage regular vision examinations, and look forward to providing our patients with long-term care! Our Norwalk office is great for patients from Norwalk, Westport, Stamford, Fairfield, Darien, and New Canaan. Come visit us at 1425 Bedford Street today. We’re on the second level!
