Todd Lynch, OD ’07, has built many parts of his life upon one foundation: an enduring love of basketball. He believes that the teamwork, trust, and sportsmanship intrinsic to the game have made him a better man. Dr. Lynch applies basketball fundamentals to optometry, fatherhood, and his secret (until now) passion: writing. He has completed three books in what will be a six-book fiction series about basketball players, coaches, and fans.
Dr. Lynch co-owns T.S. Advanced Eye Care, Inc., a practice with two Costco locations near Madison, Wisconsin. There, a trio of ICO alumni offer “integrity-driven, empathetic care to a diverse group of people from infancy through adulthood.” Dr. Lynch is an active husband and father, carving out time to write between business ownership and children’s activities. The stories he authors are about teamwork, growth, courage, and, of course, basketball. We followed Dr. Lynch for a day as he balanced work, family, and his journey to getting his hoop dreams published.
