Ever since the publication about 50 years ago of a technique for establishing an anastomosis between the lacrimal sac and the nasal cavity, mounting interest in the anatomy, embryology, physiology, and pathology of the lacrimal system has been a natural consequence. Although the various components of the lacrimal system have often been treated in the past as separate entities, this monograph approaches the entire lacrimal system as a single unit. The author pays special attention to treatments and surgical procedures that have proved sound. The illustrations and photographs are informative and helpful and make the book a welcome addition to a practical, work-a-day medical library.
