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.
