Surgical Anatomy of the Ocular Adnexa is a beautifully and thoughtfully illustrated anatomical text that provides the ophthalmic surgeon or any surgeon working in the eyelid/orbital region with detailed yet concise, easy to read and understand descriptions of the anatomy in any particular region of the eyelid, orbit or nasolacrimal system. Throughout the text are clinical pearls and vignettes to help the reader appreciate why certain anatomical features are important to understand. Key anatomical concepts are highlighted and easy to visualize with real cadaver photos as well as the artists rendition of the same region. This book: - Develops a thorough understanding of the anatomy in the eyelid, orbit, nasolacriaml and periocular regions. - Fosters an appreciation of how knowledge of the anatomy leads to a better understanding of the pathophysiology of various disease processes involving the eyelid, orbit, nasolacrimal and periocular region. - Conveys the importance of anatomy in the surgical approach to various disease processes in the eyelid, orbit, nasolacrimal and periocular regions. This second edition will be an invaluable guidel to all those working in the eyelid, orbital, and nasolacrimal areas including residents, fellows and staff in ophthalmology, otolaryngology/head and neck surgery, plastic surgery and neurosurgeons working in and around the orbit.

A guide to the relevant literature on a wide variety of clinical diseases of the optic nerve that will give the clinician a handy reference to assist in both their diagnosis and management. It provide a succinct, yet comprehensive review of optic nerve disorders commonly encountered in clinical practice, briefly reviews the anatomy and physiology of the optic nerve, and outlines those techniques of particular importance during clinical testing of optic nerve function. Chapter 1 reviews the major anatomic aspects of the optic nerve at both a macroscopic and a microscopic level, and discusses the critical role of axonal transport in optic nerve physiology. Chapter 2 takes the reader back to basics, emphasizing the importance of obtaining a detailed patient history and performing a careful ophthalmologic examination. Chapters 3 through 9 cover the major clinical disorders affecting the optic nerve: papilledema, optic neuritis, ischemic optic neuropathy, compression of the anterior visual pathways, developmental and hereditary optic nerve disorders, toxic and nutritional optic neuropathy, and traumatic optic neuropathy. The last chapter, Chapter 10, summarizes those optic neuropathies that cannot easily be categorized, but that frequently confront the general ophthalmologist in clinical practice.
