Drs Dyer and Lee are to be thanked for updating Dr Dyer's Atlas of Extraocular Muscle Surgery, the first edition of which was published in 1970. The first edition was a very approachable atlas, with a major focus on the clearly executed diagrams, followed by a concise text summarizing Dr Dyer's personal recommendations. The second edition has the same format.
