Dr. Grigsby provides consultation services to patients with difficult issues relating to eye disease, diabetes and refractive surgery and he is a frequent lecturer to clinicians on these issues.

A desire to help those with diabetes and eye problems changed the course of Dr. Grigsby’s career. He completed a Master of Science in Biology from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, doing research in collaboration with Dr. Andrew Tsin at the University of Texas at San Antonio.

Dr. Grigsby divides his time between seeing patients and research. He has published original research in several international eye journals, presented research at international meetings, and recently has written a chapter in a book for eye doctors and researchers entitled ‘Diabetic Retinopathy’. Dr. Grigsby is the founder of Redwine Eye Research LLC, an organization dedicated to solving the puzzles of diabetic eye disease.

Dr. Grigsby served on the Board of Directors of the Texas Optometric Association (TOA) for 10 years. He has chaired or served on 18 different TOA committees. In 2002-2003 he served as President of the TOA, at that time the first West Texan in 25 years to do so.

The pandemic of coronavirus (COVID 19) continues to spread endangering many of us who call Midland/Odessa home. While the number of cases in Texas is growing rapidly, so far there are few cases in our area. At Vision Health Specialties it is our goal to keep it that way.

Because eye care by necessity requires close contact between workers and patients, the Center for Disease Control along with other eye care specialty organizations recommend that during this critical period eye doctors suspend routine vision examinations. In complying with this, Vision Health Specialties will terminate routine eye care beginning Monday, March 23‎rd until Monday, April 20th. We will be open from 9:00 till 4:00 PM during this period of time with a small staff to handle urgencies such as red eyes, corneal ulcers, uveitis, abrasions, sudden increases in floaters, or flashes, and foreign bodies in the eye. Please call our office before coming in. Furthermore, those who have traveled to China, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Iran, or the state of Washington, California, New York, Louisiana and/or other affected areas, as well as those who have respiratory disease, and/or fever, will be referred to the emergency department of Midland Memorial Hospital where they are equipped to handle those at risk of coronavirus.
