I wrote my first book with Herve and had the pleasure of knowing him for many years during our ophthalmology careers.

He was a power in Ophthalmology and contributed much to the field of Practice Management.

He will be missed by all who were fortunate to know him.

Please accept my condolences.

My deepest sympathies to the Byron family. I had my first appointment with him at 12 years old in 1970 and continued to see him until he retired.He was a very kind man.He will be greatly missed.

It is with deep sadness, but also great gratitude and a smile, that we should mark the passing of Dr. Herve Byron. The most fortunate of us, who a generation ago were young and coming up through the ranks of ophthalmology, had an opportunity to be touched by Herve.

Herve kindly handed off his longstanding post as OSN's practice management columnist to me. In the years before this, he helped me frame up most of my early work exploring practice economics and especially issues surrounding the ophthalmic personality and work-life balance issues. Close readers of my OSN columns and books have been getting "Herve-by-Proxy" for all the years since then.

My last phone conversation with him was a few weeks ago. Herve was voluble, gently feisty, but frustrated by his declining energy. (Until the most recent years, his handshake--even from a wheelchair--was still crushing.)

Herve's constant admonition to anyone who would listen was that we should "retire the word 'retirement'." He lived that credo personally, winding down his New Jersey practice much later than most, and staying involved as a kind of Ophthalmic Godfather to the many surgeons and industry participants he mentored through the years.

We often talked about reincarnation, something he was quite certain of. With luck, he'll come back soon and make wonderful contributions to the province of ophthalmology once again. Look in a few years for a new intern to show up in your office with a certain twinkle in his eye. And an amazing handshake.

I remember coming to the house on Grand Ave in Englewood many times to discuss his insurance. He was one heck of a great doctor and businessman and taught me a'lot.
