This book describes functional and clinically applied anatomy of the orbit and surrounding structures. The text is well written and understandable. Many of the illustrations are reproduced from other books and articles, and a number are relatively indistinct. However, the overall quality of the illustrations is quite good, which

A chapter about orbital dissection is enhanced by a series of color reproductions taken from Bassett's Atlas of Human Anatomy, with accompanying line drawings. Extensive and current references are provided for each section. It is surprising that there is not a chapter describing the clinical relevance of various surgical incisions around the orbit, but this is a minor deficiency in an otherwise useful book. This work will be particularly valuable for ophthalmology residents and reconstructive surgical subspecialists.
