The field of oculoplastic surgery is fortunate to have an abundance of well-written texts dealing with various aspects of the subspecialty. This book finds a niche as a concise guide for ophthalmologists familiar with the anatomy and principles of oculoplastic surgery. It is not intended as an exhaustive text, but rather emphasizes a number of techniques in a step-by-step fashion.
The book consists of 39 chapters written by a group of 50 experienced oculoplastic surgeons. This large and accomplished group of authors provides a diversity of perspective. Many of the chapters are written by recognized authorities on the particular subject. The book is divided into sections dealing with anatomy and anesthesia, trauma and lacrimal surgery, ptosis, eyelid malposition, eyelid reconstruction, and orbital surgery.
