*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.
Bell's phenomenon OD
The patient has a Bell's palsy. Due to the facial palsy, Bell's phenomenon is elicited when the patient is asked to close his eyelids. Bell's phenomenon is the upward and outward movement of this patient's right eye when he tries to close that eye. The patient has facial palsy with keratitis e lagophthalmos and a lateral tarsorraphy which is not visible in the photo.
