World Class Care
We have not forgotten that a warm smiling face, careful listening, a sincere handshake, or even a soft hug is more important than high technology. We are in the people business, and our entire staff has been selected and trained to treat every patient with dignity and respect.
Continuing education is a requirement for all of our professional staff. In addition to our three ophthalmologists and two optometrists, the team of employees we have selected to serve you consists of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, surgical nursing assistants, operating room technicians, ophthalmic photographers, ophthalmic technicians, and ophthalmic assistants — all of whom may be certified by their respective associations. We are also proud of the business office staff working behind the scenes to coordinate all aspects of your visits with us. In all, we have a staff of over sixty people ready to serve you.

R. Daniel Grossman, M.D.
Dr. Grossman was born in Baltimore, MD and raised here in Bloomington, IN. He attended Indiana University where he played quarterback and linebacker for the Hoosiers from 1970-1972. After graduating from IU School of Medicine, he completed his residency in ophthalmology at Baylor College of Medicine and founded this practice in 1980, specializing in the treatment of cataracts. He is one of the most experienced cataract surgeons in the country, having done over 30,000 cataract and cataract-related laser procedures. His results continue to be excellent.
Dr. Grossman has long been recognized as a key figure in local healthcare developments. He has been associated with bringing laser eye surgery to Bloomington (1985,1990), developing the area’s first single specialty surgical center (The Eye Center of Southern Indiana and Bloomington Surgery Center, 1990), initiating The Southern Indiana Surgical Center and Campus (1991), Precision Healthcare (1993), and Unity Physician Group (1996).
Dr. Grossman’s passions outside of The Eye Center are his family and sports. He and his wife, Maureen, enjoy spending time with their children and grandchildren: Rex and Alison Grossman, Amy, Brad, Bonnie, Ella, and Cal Bostic, and Ashley, Alex, Cooper, Noah and Francesca Fox.
Chad Huck, O.D.
Born and raised in Indianapolis, Dr. Huck attended Indiana University from 1977-1985, where he played quarterback for the Hoosiers. In his final year of optometry school at Indiana University’s School of Optometry (1984), Dr. Huck joined Dr. Grossman’s practice, which allowed Dr. Grossman to continue his specialty interest in cataract surgery. Dr. Huck became board certified in the developing field of medical optometry, which focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of eye disease, with emphasis on the pre/post-surgical treatment of cataract patients.
During his nearly 30-year career at The Eye Center, Dr. Huck has been intimately involved with the clinical components of cataract surgery. Cataract surgery has evolved into a menu of highly technical options. Most of his day is spent evaluating and counseling people about which option may be best for them. He also serves as Clinic Director, which involves managing the clinical protocols, surgical planning, and employees of the practice.
Part of Dr. Huck’s role at The Eye Center has been to help coordinate between our patients’ hometown eye doctors and the eye surgeon through co-management of post-operative surgical care. In addition to this, he serves as an adjunct faculty member for Indiana University School of Optometry. Dr. Huck is married to Dr. Patricia Henderson, who is also an optometrist for Indiana University’s Community Eye Care Center. They have two children, Andrew and Elizabeth. In addition to playing dad and coach, Dr. Huck enjoys woodworking and golf.
Steven Holbrook, O.D.
Dr. Holbrook is a native of Hammond, Indiana. He graduated from Indiana University School of Optometry in 1985. During his clinical training, Dr. Holbrook had the unique opportunity to train under some of the most renowned ophthalmologists in the country. Through this experience, he became one of the first optometrists to pursue post-graduate training at the renowned Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, Florida, where he spent two-and-a-half years studying advanced ocular disease along with medical and surgical treatment of the eye.
Dr. Holbrook utilized his unique credentials and helped establish a new concept for optometry: an optometric physician in partnership with surgical specialists providing specialized surgical care of the eye. The Aran-Holbrook referral center was established in 1989 in Miami and grew into one of the most successful practices in the South. Even with his tremendous success, Dr. Holbrook longed to return home. He came to The Eye Center of Southern Indiana in 1997, where he works as a key partner in providing quality LASIK services. In addition to LASIK, his clinical interests are glaucoma and medical retina.
He and his wife, Beth, keep busy with their three sons: Cliff, Patrick, and Jacob. The Holbrooks enjoy hiking, camping, and sports.

Dr. Chang was raised here in Bloomington. He graduated from Bloomington high School South and earned a degree in biochemistry from Indiana University. He received his medical degree from Harvard Medical School, and he went on to complete his ophthalmology residency at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, one of the most highly-regarded eye institutions in the country. He then completed a two-year fellowship in eyelid and eye socket reconstructive surgery at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, Florida.
After two years in private practice on the East Coast, in April of 2000, Dr. Chang returned home to Bloomington to join The Eye Center team of physicians. Having trained in three of the very best medical programs in the country, Dr. Chang truly lends a world class reputation to The Eye Center of Southern Indiana. Dr. Chang’s clinical and surgical interests are diverse. Although he is uniquely well-skilled in eyelid and eye socket surgery (Ophththalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery), he performs many other surgical procedures including many types of laser, glaucoma, and cataract surgery.
Dr. Chang enjoys spending time with his three young children: Caitlyn, Caroline, and Christopher.
