Rosenbaum, former vice chair of ophthalmology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and chief of pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus at the Jules Stein Eye Institute, died June 22, 2010.

He was among the first investigators to explore the use of Botox injections to correct eye-muscle misalignment in strabismus, and he performed more than 300 eye-muscle correction surgeries a year, pioneering many surgical techniques still applied today.
