Unlike any other source on the subject, this broad-ranging guide discusses the pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of 120 eyelid disorders including benign lesions, malignant tumors, and acquired and congenital malpositions and diseases. Written by leading researchers practiced in the analysis and management of these conditions, this source is a must-have reference for all ophthalmologists, optometrists, dermatologists, otolaryngologists, and general plastic and reconstructive surgeons caring for patients with eyelid and ocular adnexal disease.

This book, with 288 pages and hundreds of illustrations, provides a compendium of information from both ophthalmology and pathology in a convenient single source of information….This atlas will be useful for anyone who sees and manages these conditions: Ophthalmologists, Dermatologists, Reconstructive Surgeons, and Optometrists….Although this volume is an outstanding atlas, it is much more than that. While most atlases catalog illustrations, this volume organizes thought. It is unique in this attribute, and will be a welcome addition to anyone in its target audience." —Russell S. Gonnering, MD; Milwaukee, Wisconsin (American Journal of Ophthalmology, May 2008)

"It is a quick and easy reference that allows the reader to look up eyelid malpositions and lesions alphabetically by pathology or simply browse through high-quality figures and photographs… .I definitely recommend this book to ophthalmology, plastic surgery, or dermatology residents who are studying eyelid pathology and to comprehensive ophthalmologists who would like a great clinical reference. This book is extremely well-presented and illustrated; it is to the point and pertinent. The authors should be particularly commended on the evaluation, the histology, and the descriptions of eyelid lesions." —Patrick R. Boulos, MD (Canadian Journal of Ophthalmology, 2008)
