Doody's review of the 2nd edition received 5 stars. Excerpts:
"The second edition of this book seeks to provide a truly comprehensive update of the entire field of oculoplastic surgery, incorporating up-to-date innovations in sufficient detail to become the standard reference. Although there are competitors, the objective is worthy and the authors are true experts in their field. The text meets its objectives as a standard reference, with sufficient detail in a one volume text to effectively supplement shorter texts.
This is the second edition of a classic reference in oculoplastic surgery which successfully incorporates up-to-date techniques in a field that has evolved substantially since the first edition. I would highly recommend it as a useful reference text for any specialist engaged in plastic surgery of the eye."
