Formerly President of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, Dr. Smith served for more than ten years on the Academy Board of Trustees. He received numerous awards, including being named among America’s Top Doctors; being acknowledged by the Academy with its Life Achievement Honor Award; and being selected for the Johns Hopkins Society of Scholars.

Dr. Smith died from bladder cancer on Monday, March 17, 2014. Ronald E. Smith, MD, was a giant in the field of ophthalmology.  He will be remembered for his many outstanding qualities, including the trust he so capably established with patients, colleagues, and friends the world over.  He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Suzette Smith, his previous wife, Dr. Sara Watt Smith and their daughter Kelly Smith Parker, her husband John, and their two sons, Cole and Austin; their son Dr. Matthew Pierce Smith, Matt’s wife Tirza, and their two daughters, Sophia and Catalina; and his brother Dick Smith, Dick’s wife Ann, and their two sons, Mike and Mark.

Marissa Goldberg, COO, CFO for Doheny adds, “The Doheny Eye Institute family is deeply saddened by the passing of our friend and colleague Dr. Ronald E. Smith. Ron helped create what Doheny Eye Institute is today – a world renowned eye institute. He cared passionately about patients, faculty, residents, and staff. Ron was excited about Doheny’s new affiliation with UCLA and was the first faculty member to resign from USC to join Doheny-UCLA. In Ron’s memory, we are more committed than ever to ensure the success of our new affiliation and Doheny’s mission — the conservation, improvement and restoration of human eyesight.”

The Ronald E. Smith Endowed Chair & Memorial Fund directly supports the Doheny Eye Institute.
