Article overlooked Cantor contributions

May 16, 2015

Over the years I have become familiar with the work of Dr. and Mrs. Cantor in establishing the Glick Eye Institute. The IBJ [May 11] article ignores the fact that there would probably be no Glick Eye Institute, or the $30 million of research benefits, except for the work of the Cantors. The Cantors have worked tirelessly to help create a world-class research institute here in Indianapolis.

Many of the contributions to the institute have come from the Glicks and other patients of the Indiana University Department of Ophthalmology who appreciate the care they have received at the hands of Cantor and other physicians.

Mrs. Cantor gave up a law practice to help her husband raise the funds necessary to establish and run the clinic. The passion they share in the institute [is] both personal and professional.

The success of the institute and the benefits of the research it will carry out will help not only Indiana but also the rest of the world. I think the Cantors deserve our appreciation for making Indianapolis the home of a world-class eye research center which will benefit many Hoosiers.
