We wanted to share a very special story featuring one of our partner doctors, Christine Sindt. Dr. Sindt was one of the very first eye care professionals to study and champion our Tangible® Hydra-PEG® coating for contact lenses, and her pioneering and inventive spirit is beautifully captured in this piece from the September issue of The Ophthalmologist.
You can read the story here.
The article tells the story of a young woman experiencing multiple eye and health issues, and how Dr. Sindt invented a new process to restore her vision.
What we particularly liked in this article was Dr. Sindt’s philosophy:
“My patients aren’t eyeballs in a chair, they are people…what they want to do
– their goals in life – will determine what choices we make together.” It’s this
focus on the patient and giving them the life they want that we share.
We salute Dr. Sindt and her tireless work to solve patients’ eye care problems. Thank you, Dr. Sindt, for everything you do for patients and for everything you’ve done to help us bring Tangible® Hydra-PEG® to them to make their lives better.
