Dr. Kindermann developed a strong interest in cataract surgery during medical school. He first trained with his uncle in New York and later with Dr. Charles Kelman, the inventor of phacoemulsification and Dr. Turgut Hamdi, who participated in the implantation of the first intraocular lens in the United States in 1950.

Dr. Kindermann maintains a strong emphasis on cataract technological advancements, especially surgical instruments and intraocular lenses. He was a participant in the first clinical trial of multifocal intraocular lenses with the AMO corporation beginning in 1994. This lens, the "ARRAY" lens, was approved by the FDA and was the first certified intraocular lens verified to correct both near and far vision. Dr. Kindermann implanted hundreds of these lenses before this lens was discontinued prior to introduction of second generation products.
