Ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery represents one of the most rapidly evolving ophthalmic subspecialties, with a recent profusion of relevant articles in general ophthalmic publications, and the publication of several textbooks of oculoplastic surgical technique. What has been lacking until recently, however, is a well-organized and comprehensive textbook summarizing state-of-theart concepts in the diagnosis and management of oculoplastic and orbital disorders. Dr Hornblass has made a major contribution to the field of ophthalmic plastic surgery in this regard with the publication of Volume I of Oculoplastic, Orbital and Reconstructive Surgery.

"What has been lacking... is a well-organized and comprehensive textbook summarizing stateof-the-art concepts..."

Volume I of this two-volume set is dedicated to disorders of the eyelids. It consists of nine sections comprising 76 chapters. It was prepared by 92 contributors drawn from the specialties of ophthalmology, ophthalmic plastic surgery, dermatology, pathology, psychiatry, otolaryngology, and general plastic surgery.
