While there are books that review lacrimal surgery as a portion of occuloplastic practice, The Lacrimal System: Diagnosis, Management & Surgery, Second Edition, addresses the range of lacrimal disorders in one concise, practical volume. Building off of the success of the first edition, this text includes significantly updated information, as well as new chapters that are complete with high quality color images and illustrations.Lacrimal surgeries are among the most commonly performed ones in occulopastic surgery. The procedures range from unblocking tear ducts in small children with congenital dysmorphology, to correcting dry eye through surgery. As with many of these procedures, the disorders sound minor but the patients’ lives are seriously affected. By broadening the scope of the subject, the editors of The Lacrimal System, Second Edition meet the needs of oculoplastic surgeons, ophthalmologists, residents and fellows who are learning these special procedures.
