The second edition of this excellent text on plastic surgery of the ocular adnexa has been considerably improved and expanded. The techniques of dressings, particularly the application of satisfactory pressure dressings, is dealt with in a new chapter, and this is sufficiently detailed and illustrated that it serves as a bedside manual. The illustrations are particularly good throughout the book.

While in itself the book is complete as a text on reconstructive surgery of the eyelids, it would be a further improvement if a chapter on reconstruction of the orbit were included in future editions, since many of these procedures naturally follow orbital exenteration.
