Since the appearance of the first edition in 1988, Mark Levine’s Manual of Oculoplastic Surgery has become a widely usedand highly respected source for the basics of oculoplastics, and is arguablya classic in the field. This third edition, published in 2003, continues thetradition of short chapters, clear and concise writing by multiple authorswho are leaders in the field, and clear illustrations without photographs.Over the last few years, several outstanding books have been released thattarget the same audience. In reading this book, I was wondering whether itcontinues to be the best inexpensive and well-written manual of oculoplastics.The verdict is mixed.
