The Lewis Rudin Glaucoma Prize

Current & Previous Recipients »


The Lewis Rudin Glaucoma Prize of The New York Academy of Medicine was established in 1995 in honor of Lewis Rudin, the New York City real estate developer, and is funded by the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation with additional support provided by Mr. Jack Rudin.

This $50,000 prize is awarded for the most outstanding scholarly article on glaucoma published in a peer-reviewed journal during the previous calendar year. Nominations are solicited from leaders of the ophthalmologic community and solicited through notices in the Journal of Glaucoma and other publications.

One prize winner is recommended for ratification by the Academy’s Board of Trustees by the Lewis Rudin Glaucoma Prize Selection Committee, a group of nationally recognized experts in glaucoma research chaired by David H. Abramson, MD of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Weill Medical College of Cornell University.
