Fifty-six international specialists contribute 49 chapters to a reference text offering practicing ophthalmologists, residents, and fellows expert advice, preferences, and opinions on challenging clinical questions commonly associated with oculoplastics. Structured around the informal, concise, to- the-point, "curbside consult" that typically takes place between practitioners in clinic hallways, over the telephone, at lunch, or by email, the material is presented in a Q&A format. Each chapter opens with the question(s), followed by a response from an oculoplastic specialist. The 49 chapters are organized into sections on upper eyelid malposition and related disorders; lower eyelid malposition and related disorders; eyelid neoplasm; orbital inflammation and infection; orbital neoplasm; trauma; evisceration, enucleation, and the anophthalmic socket; lacrimal drainage system; and cosmetic oculofacial plastic surgery. Illustrated throughout with full-color and b&w photographs and diagrams.
