Over the past several years, there has been a considerable increase in the number of ophthalmic subspecialty books published. The field of oculoplastics is no exception, as I can think of at least a dozen books in this field that have been printed in the past two or three years. The text reviewed herein is the sequel to a book written in 1976, Practical Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, by Drs Merrill J. Reeh, Charles K. Beyer, and Gerald Shannon. Dr Kohn is a professor in the Department of Ophthalmology at the UCLA School of Medicine in Santa Barbara, Calif.
