Description: This surgical atlas for the orbit, eyelids, and lacrimal system provides logical evaluations of disease processes and outstanding descriptions and illustrations of surgical techniques.
Purpose: The purpose is to explain and illustrate the approach to orbital, lacrimal, and eyelid surgery. It does an outstanding job of meeting these objectives.
Audience: It is basic enough for beginning residents, but is comprehensive and detailed enough to benefit the most experienced fellows, general ophthalmologists, and practicing oculoplastic surgeons.
Features: The book discusses the evaluation of and surgical techniques for eyelid reconstructions, eyelid malposition, lacrimal abnormalities, and orbital surgery. It also covers cosmetic rejuvenation considerations. It combines a comprehensive organization structure with contributions from world class authors to provide an outstanding reference for an ophthalmologist of any practice level. The illustrations comprise an excellent reference to aid in comprehension of the surgical techniques discussed.
Assessment: This book stands strong with any of its peers in the surgical descriptions and techniques of orbital, eyelid, and lacrimal surgery.
