The authors' stated goals for the second edition of Colour Atlas of Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery are unchanged from the first. Namely, they have aimed to produce an atlas with sufficiently realistic surgical photographs "so that the anatomy can be recognized at operation and each step of the procedure understood." The authors further hope that their atlas will allow "more direct access to the field of ophthalmic plastic surgery for those with limited experience and provide a sound basis on which to build as experience grows." Finally, the authors hope to stimulate interest and improve surgical standards in ophthalmic plastic surgery.
