Techniques of Anophthalmic Cosmesis

Edited by Pierre Guibor and Published by Stration Intercontinental Medical Book Corp. Marsha Guibor (6) 381 Park Avenue, South, New York.

This book is a collection of papers, and dis­cussions from the Seventeenth Annual Meeting of the American Society of Oculists held at Dallas, Texas. The contents have been classified into six sections, i-Lids, ii-Orbits, iii-Facial and systemic tumours, iv-Free papers, v-Workshop (complications of enucleation) and vi-scientific exhibits. Each chapter in the book emphasises that the subject of ophthalmic cosmesis requires a scientific approach and with the cooperation of the ophthalmologist and oculist, lot can be done for these patients whose psychology is shattered and who have great social handicap because of cosmetic disfigurement. The problem of ptosis over artificial eye has been beautifully presented by Dr. Lee Allen. The methods of reduction or correction of ptosis by size of pros­thesis, the use of shelves or crutches and shaping of plastic eyes have been stressed. He stressed the importance of adequate knowledge of anatomy of the orbit and mechanical principles by all oculists. Dr. Tenzel felt that 90% of ptosis over the artificial eye can be corrected by an ocularist. Only 10% of cases would need opera­tion. It is possible to correct many cases of entropian, ectropian and sagging of the lower eye lid by physically manipulating the tarsal plate and other tissues after lower eye lids with the shape of prosthesis. The various aspects of management of an ophthalmic enophthalmos have been discussed with clinical tips of great value. All other chapters have also been dis­cussed and illustrated in order to help oculist and ophthalmologists to understand the prob­lem and their management. The book is reco­mmended to all ophthalmologists, plastic surgeons and ocularists.
