With great sadness, we announce the passing of our colleague Tony Tyers

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we must let you know of the passing of our colleague Tony Tyers.

As many of you will know, Tony bore a progressive illness over the past few years with characteristic strength, resilience, and commitment both to his family and his work. He was a great teacher, a towering authority in ophthalmology, and a true friend to us all.

Amongst his many contributions, Tony will be remembered for his colour atlas of ophthalmic plastic surgery, which reached the fourth edition, and for his exemplary thoroughness, quiet and thoughtful attention to detail, and kindness. He had been an inspirational President of ESOPRS and BOPSS, and a strong and unfailing support to the UK’s National Health Service and the Order of St John, and his selfless contribution to all these organisations over the years is an inspiration to us all.

As a friend, colleague and teacher, he will be deeply missed, and our thoughts and best wishes are with his wife and family at this time.
