After an introductory chapter on anesthesia, on the preparation of the patient and a description of usual instruments, the author takes up the subject of the orbit with a brief description of the pathologic picture and the clinical symptoms of the usual diseases with their operative treatment and the plastic repair of deformities. Then follows material on the lacrimal apparatus and operations for enucleation, for evisceration and for contracted socket. The ocular muscles are fully treated, with a description of the underlying clinical principles and indications for operation. The chapter on plastic surgery (pages 193-233) is a revision of the author's recent book on this subject. The chapter on the surgery of the lids (pages 234-418) gives a complete survey of the many operations which have been devised for the removal of tumors, for correction of deformities, trachomatous conditions and ptosis and for reconstruction of the lid. A useful chapter
