Dr. Louis Lipschultz
Dr. Lipschultz is a product of our community. Born in Chicago, and raised in Glenwood, he attended Brookwood Grade School, and Bloom High School in Chicago Heights. He then attended Eastern Illinois University majoring in chemical engineering and the pre-medicine track of coursework. He received his Doctor of Optometry degree in 1986 from the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago, and promptly acquired Dr. Rocke’s successful practice (at the time was located in Homewood), and settled into a home in the Beverly neighborhood in Chicago.
After 14 years in private practice, Dr. Lipschultz left full-time practice in 2000 for Atlanta to assume the position of CEO of Pulse Data International, Inc. He coordinated a series of acquisitions which resulted in a new name: HumanWare. He left HumanWare in late 2003 to form several new companies focused on the vision impairment industry and accessible web application design.
Dr. Lipschultz continues to allocate a significant portion of his patient care hours to general care, contact lens, and pediatric vision care. However, he continues to work with industry leaders to spearhead new products and procedures to help visually impaired individuals.
Dr. Lipschultz splits his time between his home in Southern California and our Olympia Fields office. While in California he manages his several technology companies, and enjoys time with his wife, Dr. Susan Cotter, a professor at the Marshall B. Ketchum University.
