Sight Eyecare - Sign Mockup (3).png


Our passion here at Sight Eyecare is giving sight to the entire family. Specializing in pediatric eyecare, we are able to do just that! Dr. Sechler obtained her fellowship in vision development to help further her love of caring for the youngest of patients. She specializes in full comprehensive pediatric eye exams and the management of amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (turned eye), as well as learning related vision disorders.

What sets Sight Eyecare apart from the rest? A focus on family. Exceptional care and service is top priority. Not only will you receive a state of the art ocular exam, but also feel like you were treated as a member of our family. Not to mention leaving in a really awesome pair of glasses to take on the world around you!

Syndi Whited, ABO


I'm Syndi Whited. I moved to Chattanooga when I was 18 years old from a small town called Jamestown, TN. I have 6 years of optical experience, including being ABO Certified. I am currently apprenticing to become a Licensed Dispensing Optician. I love helping people see their best and look their best! I take pride in my work and strive to meet every patients need whether it's finding the perfect frame and lenses or learning how to wear and care for contacts. 


I have 3 beautiful children and an adorable dog who take up my spare time. We love going to parks, going swimming and having movie nights.
