Luis Tiant and Sunridge International Partner to Provide Medical Relief in Cuba: Former Star Pitcher for the Red Sox and Yankees Leads the Fight Against Glaucoma
Date:2/2/2010

FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sunridge International (OTC Bulletin Board: SNDZ), an innovative developer of safe and noninvasive therapies for glaucoma, proudly announces its partnership with Luis Tiant and Scientific Social Solutions Charitable Foundation (S3) to provide medical relief in Cuba. Tiant, a Cuban native and former starting pitcher for the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, will work in conjunction with the Scientific Social Solutions Charitable Foundation and Ophthalmic International (www.oi-pnt.com), a wholly owned subsidiary of Sunridge, to help Cubans fight glaucoma.

Sunridge will send a medical team to Cuba to train doctors and treat patients, followed by a shipment of supplies to a distribution center to help patients after the team leaves the island. Glaucoma is the 2nd leading cause of blindness in Cuba, an issue Mr. Tiant will promote as the spokesperson for this charity drive.

Ophthalmic International has pioneered Pneumatic Trabeculoplasty (PNT), a two-minute, noninvasive, cost effective, alternative treatment for glaucoma. This treatment is ideal for Cuba and other countries' national health care systems because PNT is safe; and the treatment lasts 3-4 months before another round of care is necessary.  

"I'm very excited about being a partner with Sunridge and Ophthalmic International in this medical relief program for Cuba. I know that glaucoma is an incredibly serious problem not only in Cuba but everywhere, and it is always good to be able to give something back," states Luis Tiant.

Credibility and Success Worldwide: Sunridge International in Action

Sunridge International continues to champion PNT and combat glaucoma. "We're extremely pleased with our involvement with Luis Tiant and this project. It will not only help the citizens of Cuba, but will most likely start a domino effect in the Caribbean, because of the fact that 'PNT' provides a safe, affordable and effective treatment for glaucoma patients everywhere," says G. Richard Smith, President and CEO of Sunridge International.
