At Deen-Gross Eye Centers, we are committed to providing our patients with professional, fast and reliable eye care services, along with relaxing consultations and examinations at our eye clinic. Our Ophthalmologists strive to offer the best patient care around, and our doctors are always available to discuss any medical concerns. We first opened our doors in 1973 and have since grown to have two locations in Merrillville, IN, and one in Hobart, IN . Our exceptionally well-trained eye surgeons have performed over 25,000 cataract surgeries while in practice and were the first to use IOLs in combination with cataract surgery

Our Specialties

State-of-the-Art LASIK

We have been performing Laser Vision Correction or LASIK, at the Deen-Gross Eye Centers for over 14 years. Laser vision correction is a proven method to get rid of glasses or contact lenses. We can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK is an outpatient procedure, usually only taking about ten minutes and both eyes can be done on the same day. Recovery is normally quite quick, allowing you to resume your normal routine in a matter of days.

I have been a patient of Dr. David Gross for over ten years. I’ve seen first-hand how he is completely dedicated to the preservation of sight and giving patients a more satisfying quality of life.

Premium Cataract Surgery

The Deen-Gross Eye Centers is proud to offer patients alternatives when it comes time for cataract surgery. Dr. Gross has been using lens implants correcting astigmatism and multifocal lenses for over four years. Cataracts are a progressive change in one's natural lens. They obscure vision, making performing daily tasks difficult from a visual standpoint. When they are significant enough to interfere with eyesight, the recommended treatment is surgical removal and placement of an intraocular lens.

Modern technology is available to use a TORIC implant, reducing astigmatism from within the eye. Patients are very happy with a tremendous improvement in visual quality. Dr. Gross believes in this technology so much, he even implanted this in his own father. Dr. Gross also implants the RESTOR brand of multifocal implant, results are very good with patients out of glasses 90 percent of the time after using this technology.
