The intent of this Color Atlas of Oculoplastic Surgery is to provide surgeons familiar with surgical anatomy with a broad survey of contemporary oculoplastic surgery.
The text illustrates and provides basic information on surgical techniques that are straightforward and reliable in managing many common oculoplastic conditions that a clinician may encounter in practice. The principal goal is to present the material with precision and clarity, with special emphasis on understanding the pathophysiologic mechanism of diseases. An integrated text, accompanied by color photographs and complementary line drawings, guides the surgeon through each procedure in a systematic fashion. Pertinent anatomy, surgical indications, important technical considerations, and complications receive appropriate emphasis in each chapter. The benchmark for a successful chapter is that photographs and line drawings will describe the technique without reading the text.
