The Deen-Gross Eye Centers Team

"The whole experience has been nothing short of exceeding my expectations."

"I was referred to Dr. Gross for Lasik and the whole experience has been nothing short of exceeding my expectations. Dr. Gross and his staff were straight to the point,... I wish I would have had the procedure done sooner because it's been life-changing and I have no regrets whatsoever." Molly Chavez

We Make Treatment Affordable

Don't let the cost of care make you lose sight of what's important: protecting your vision. Our practice accepts most vision care plans to help cover at least a portion of the cost of treatment. Our friendly staff is happy to review your plan to ensure you are maximizing benefits. For those without insurance, or for those who want treatments insurance doesn't fully cover, we offer CareCredit® financing. CareCredit financing breaks your cost into low-interest monthly payments for up to one year. 

Our Featured Ophthalmology Procedures Both Surgical and Non-Surgical Options

We offer both surgical and non-surgical treatments for common eye disorders and diseases. Our experienced Indiana-based doctors will examine your vision and eye health to accurately diagnose your eye condition and provide the medical care that will best suit your needs.


LASIK surgery can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism by reshaping your cornea with a laser. This laser surgery can give patients back their 20/20 vision and eliminate their need for contact lenses or glasses. Our Merrillville practice offers LASIK screenings to determine if you could be a good candidate.

Glaucoma Treatment

Glaucoma is a group of eye disorders that puts pressure on your optic nerve. Glaucoma is a serious medical issue that, when left untreated, can lead to permanent vision loss. While the disease cannot be cured, our procedures can help prevent it from stealing your sight. Your treatment could include eye drops, prescription medicine, laser treatment, and surgery. Each eye exam at our Merrillville practice includes a Glaucoma test so we can diagnose the condition and provide treatment as early as possible.

Cataract Surgery

A cataract occurs when your eye lens becomes clouded and impairs your vision. Cataracts typically develop as we age, but thanks to modern technology and procedures, our ophthalmologists can remove your clouded lens and replace it with a state-of-the-art IOL to eliminate blurred vision and improve your eyesight. Our ophthalmologists have performed over 30,000 cataract surgeries to restore their patients' vision and prevent the cataract from causing permanent vision loss.
