Dr. Larry Frohman's Testimony

We will never be able to replace our founder, Tom Carlow. Tom was an inspiration to many of us, most certainly including me. 

Tom was not the first neuro-ophthalmologist in the United States.  But he certainly had a vision of colleagues working (and playing) together as a means of advancing our specialty, helping each other practice, and ultimately, giving better care to our patients.

Besides his personal achievements, he did something that no other neuro-ophthalmologist can claim-he brought us together.  First for a meeting, and then as a society.  Without him, I am not sure our specialty would have survived.  Everything that NANOS does for its members can ultimately be traced back to Tom.

He was always very serious about our specialty and our Society.  He had a nice word for everyone, but if you did something that he believed could potentially harm our specialty or Society, you would likely hear about it.

I will always remember and value how he supported and encouraged me.

We will all miss him.  

Susan and Tom's family have requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to NANOS. We suggest that donating to the Thomas and Susan Carlow Young Investigator Award Fund to honor Tom's memory would be appropriate. Donations can be made here.
