This new edition of Blaskovics' textbook of ophthalmic surgery has been thoroughly revised. While the previous editions served the needs of undergraduates and of those who were preparing for ophthalmology, this edition treats mostly of those procedures which are used by the author, as is stated in the preface, and the opinion is expressed that it is better to describe fewer methods in a thorough manner than too many.
Blaskovics is well known as the originator of several new methods in ophthalmic surgery and has improved a number of operative procedures, especially on the eyelids. This explains why he devotes one third of the book and nearly half of the illustrations to the description of operations on the eyelids. The text and the illustrations of this part are excellent, especially those illustrations showing his well known and widely used operation for ptosis.
