The arrival of the second edition of Smith's Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeryis a welcome event. This prodigious volume is appropriately dedicated to the late Dr Byron Smith, a giant in ophthalmic plastic surgery and a friend and mentor to the book's editors. In his 1986 historical reflections on ophthalmic plastic surgery, Dr Smith acknowledged the enormous contributions of his oculoplastic mentor, Dr Wendell Hughes, and those of the father of oculoplastic surgery, Dr John Wheeler. Dr Smith also recognized the contributions of many different disciplines that have made possible the present status of ophthalmic plastic surgery. The second edition of Smith's Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeryreflects this evolution of the subspecialty.
