The definitive resource on reconstructive and aesthetic oculo-facial surgery

Oculoplastic Surgery, Third Edition by Brian Leatherbarrow, reflects more than 25 years of experience and multidisciplinary collaboration in treating patients with a wide spectrum of oculoplastic, orbital, and lacrimal conditions. The third edition builds on the highly acclaimed prior editions, with expanded coverage of oculo-facial surgery procedures and management of complications.

The book is pragmatically organized in seven sections and 29 chapters, starting with basic and applied anatomy, followed by procedure-specific sections on eyelid surgery, cosmetic surgery, orbital surgery, lacrimal surgery, anophthalmic socket surgery, and trauma. Updates include an expanded applied anatomy chapter, prevention and management of dermal filler complications, a new approach to the management of patients with acquired blepharoptosis, and the surgical approaches to optic nerve sheath fenestration.
