Lacrimal system surgery is among the most common procedures performed by oculoplastic surgeons. Surgical intervention ranges from probing and intubation of blocked nasolacrimal ducts to endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy. There are few recently published textbooks dedicated to lacrimal surgery. The editors have chosen, in The Lacrimal System: Diagnosis, Management & Surgery, to address the complete range of lacrimal disorders in one concise, practical volume. By broadening the scope of the subject, the editors hope to meet the needs of ophthalmologists, otolaryngologists, oral maxillofacial and plastic surgeons who perform lacrimal procedures, oculoplastic fellows who are mastering the nuances of these procedures, and experts interested in learning about the most recent modifications in techniques. .
