Tadeusz Krwawicz (January 15, 1910 – August 17, 1988) was a Polish ophthalmologist. He pioneered the use of cryosurgery in ophthalmology. He was the first to describe a method of cataract extraction by cryoadhesion in 1961, and to develop a probe by means of which cataracts can be grasped and extracted.
The Tadeusz Krwawicz Gold Medal is awarded by the International Council of Ophthalmology Board every four years.
