Dr. Lubow was honored to be in the first graduating “class” of neuro-ophthalmologists.
Martin Lubow grew up in New York City and moved to California when he was 16. After graduating from UCLA, he went to Medical School at UCSF. He completed an ophthalmology residency at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Following residency, he served in the Army as a physician.
Dr. Lubow was honored to be in the first graduating “class” of neuro-ophthalmologists. When the first neuro-ophthalmologist fellowship class graduated, they were dispersed throughout the USA to teach this new sub-specialty. He was recruited by Ohio State University in part because Dr. George Paulson, founding chairman of the OSU Department of Neurology, recognized the advantage of having a neuro-ophthalmologist for OSU.
After 30 years of clinical practice and teaching hundreds of medical students and many residents, Dr. Lubow retired, but continued vigorously working with rheumatologists and pathologists around the globe.
