EyeRounds Online Atlas of Ophthalmology
Contributor: William Charles Caccamise, Sr, MD, Retired Clinical Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry
*Dr. Caccamise has very generously shared his images of patients taken while operating during the "eye season" in rural India as well as those from his private practice during the 1960's and 1970's. Many of his images are significant for their historical perspective and for techniques and conditions seen in settings in undeveloped areas.
Acute phase of bee-sting
Please refer to other Atlas photograph of this patient whose cornea was stung by a bee. The white dot at 11 o'clock of the corneal infiltrate is the stinger. The other photograph shows the final corneal scar that resulted from the cornea's struggle with this insult. In addition, the eye was involved with severe anterior uveitis as a reaction to the bee-stinger.The uveitis and active keratitis responded to removal of the stinger, atropinization of the eye, and intensive topical sreroid-antibiotic drops and ointment.
