Peepers Family Eyecare

In 1992 Dr. Erick Gray, opened his first Peepers location in Bowie, MD.  Dr. Gray’s philosophy has always been to provide high-quality, private-practice eye care including state-of-the-art equipment and distinctive eyewear.


In 2000, Peepers expanded by opening another office at the Village of Waugh Chapel, in Gambrills, MD.  This office also met with success, enabling Dr. Gray to open his third office in Mount Airy, MD, in 2006.


In 2007, Dr. Gray partnered with Dr. Norman Fine, an experienced practitioner, who owned successful practices in Greenbelt and Columbia, MD.


Peepers welcomed Dr. Patel in 2011. Dr. Patel interned with Dr. Gray from age 15 until he graduated optometry school. Peepers is proud of his accomplishments. Dr. Patel now owns the Peepers Gambrills and Peepers Bowie locations alongside his wife, Dr. Veera Patel.


In 2012, Dr. Gray expanded again, this time into Towson and Catonsville, MD.


Dr. Gray’s formula for success is the same, he believes in maintaining a strong core of co-workers who act as a team, and, together, give each patient their best care.  Dr. Gray believes in the small business philosophy and urges his patients to shop local. Peepers practices have won “Best Of” awards multiple times.
