About this book

Lacrimal disorders are one of the very common conditions encountered not only by the oculoplastic surgeons but also by the general ophthalmologists in their daily practice. Written by global experts in the field of dacyrology, this book is a comprehensive, updated practical guide on evaluation and management of patients with lacrimal diseases. This up-to-date reference work covers all aspects of the field including the basic anatomy and underlying pathology, evaluation of a patient, and all surgical procedures currently used in managing various disorders in an organized fashion. Surgical modalities including the endoscopic approaches are thoroughly and succinctly reviewed with ample illustrations for better understanding. Since familiarity with a surgical technique is incomplete without the knowledge of risk factors and red flags, an emphasis on dealing with surgical complications and failure has received priority in this treatise. Controversial topics and treatment dilemmas have been discussed in detail with the objective of reviewing the present consensus among the experts.

Reviews

“This book sets out to explain all aspects of the lacrimal system from embryology and pathological processes to imaging modalities and treatment options. … This book is written for ophthalmology residents interested in doing advanced lacrimal and orbital surgery, namely, those pursuing an oculoplastic fellowship. It is also a worthwhile resource for oculoplastic surgery fellows and practicing physicians.” (Marie Somogyi, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2015)
