Jeffrey Nerad has produced a practical, comprehensive text on oculoplastic
and orbital surgery, written for residents, fellows, and general ophthalmologists
who wish to evaluate potential surgical patients and perform common oculoplastic,
lacrimal, and orbital procedures. The author easily articulates the learned,
often unconscious, approach of a skilled oculoplastic surgeon to patients
with eyelid, lacrimal, and orbital diseases. Dr Nerad takes the reader from
patient evaluation by medical history and physical examination, through disease
classification, to surgical execution. The text, which is filled with personal
experiences and practical advice on the treatment of patients with eyelid,
lacrimal, and orbital problems, emphasizes functional oculoplastic surgery
rather than aesthetic surgery.
