This is a Manual of experiences in management of disorders in the field of Oculoplasty, Orbitopathies and Dacryology since 1960. Emphasis is on quantitative and qualitative assessment of anomaly, both clinically and/or with objective diagnostic procedures as per present-day imaging techniques, then to plan the course of management, by medical, surgical or other modalities, and their proper time schedule.
This manual is not intended to be a traditional textbook, but a practical way of looking at a problem, then devising a plan of management best suited for that situation and for that patient, innovatively, with our background of morphological, genetic, physiological and pathological knowledge and its variations, besides the personal experience and the solution best suited to appease the psyche of the patient
With an Atlas of personal experiences for observations, analyses, pitfalls and remedies, subject matter presented in this Manual pertains to the second most common type of patients seeking Ophthalmic consultation in various clinics and eye centers. Of course, the first is correction of refractive errors.
