Krupin, Dr. Theodore  
Dr. Theodore Krupin, 72, of Huntley, Illinois died peacefully on Wednesday, March 25, 2015. Dr. Krupin was an extraordinary physician, scientist, and Glaucoma specialist who made a long list of important contributions to the field of Ophthalmology. He was a world renowned leader in the research and treatment of Glaucoma. Theodore Krupin was born in St. Louis, Missouri on April 30, 1942, the son of Martin and Lillian (Lamberg) Krupin. He was a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis (BS) and St. Louis University School of Medicine (MD). He served in the U.S. Air Force as a Major at Sheppard Air Force Base from 1970-72. He completed his Ophthalmology residency and Glaucoma fellowship training at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri in 1976. Dr. Krupin's career spanned three major academic institutions: Washington University in St. Louis, The University of Pennsylvania, and Northwestern University in Chicago. After achieving the rank of Professor of Ophthalmology in 1982 at Washington University, Dr. Krupin moved to the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia in 1983 where he was interim Chairman of the Department and Director of the Scheie Eye Institute from 1986 to 1989. He joined the Department of Ophthalmology at Northwestern University in 1990 and held the distinguished title of "David E. Shoch Professor" of Ophthalmology. In 1998, Dr. Krupin co-founded University Eye Specialists and the Chicago Center for Vision Research. In May 2008, Dr. Krupin returned to the full-time faculty at Northwestern University as Professor of Ophthalmology at the Feinberg School of Medicine. Dr. Krupin authored more than 160 original scientific papers and is the author/coauthor/editor of nine Ophthalmology textbooks, including the "Atlas of Complications in Ophthalmic Surgery" and "The Glaucomas." He was the principal investigator for numerous research grants, including the lead role in the important Normal Tension Glaucoma study conducted in recent years. Throughout his career, he served on the Editorial Boards of various journals and publications related to Glaucoma, including the Journal of Glaucoma, Current Eye Research, and International Glaucoma Review. Dr. Krupin is also credited with important innovations (including the early Krupin Eye Valve) that are a critical part of the management of patients with Glaucoma. Dr. Krupin was a long-time member of the Board of Directors, Medical Advisory Board and Scientific Advisory Board at The Glaucoma Foundation (New York), and served on the Board of Governors of the World Glaucoma Association. Dr. Krupin was a Charter Member of the American Glaucoma Society (AGS) in 1986, and subsequently served as Secretary (1999-2006), Vice President (2007-2008), and President (2009-2010). Dr. Krupin has been the recipient of many distinguished awards from institutions such as Research to Prevent Blindness and the National Eye Institute. He was the guest lecturer for many professional meetings and universities around the world. In 1985, he received an Honorary Masters Degree from the University of Pennsylvania. In 2008, he received the Life Achievement Honor Award from the American Academy of Ophthalmology. He was the Honored Guest at the 2012 AGS Meeting. To those who knew him well, he was "Ted." Among this group are the more than 80 Glaucoma clinical and research fellows he mentored and trained, fondly referred to as Krupin Fellows. Professionally, Ted would be the first to say that his greatest accomplishment was teaching, inspiring and sharing his knowledge and skills with the young doctors who have and will become the future leaders in the research and treatment of Glaucoma. Dr. Krupin is survived by his beloved wife and soul mate, Medine (married July 5, 1996); his sister and brother-in-law, Jackie Kolker and Dr. Allan Kolker; and his brother, Harvey Krupin. He is also survived by his blended family that he loved dearly: Margot Davis, Victoria Kostak (Troy), Jennifer Carey (Mitch), Matthew Kowalczyk, and his grandchildren Jessica and Justin Kostak; and Jackson, Sienna, and Celeste Carey. He is preceded in death by his parents and his son, Daniel. The family would like to express our deepest appreciation and love to our special friend and honorary family member, Norma Parker, who loved and cared for Ted during his illness. Charitable donations for Glaucoma Research may be made in Dr. Krupin's memory to The Glaucoma Foundation, Attn: Scott Christensen (President/CEO), 80 Maiden Lane, Suite 700, New York, NY 10038.
