 This textbook is relevant to readers preparing for the EBO-ESOPRS examination, but will also be of interest to residents and fellows in ophthalmology, plastic surgery, dermatology and all specialists with an interest in oculoplastic, lacrimal and orbital surgery.

Volume 1 is divided into three sections: the first section includes chapters on functional eyelid disorders, the second section examines rejuvenation of the periorbital region and the third is on lacrimal disorders.
