*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.

adherent leukoma with aftercataract and with needling scar at limbus at 6 o'clock.

The patient had a perforating injury to his cornea. This injury was accompanied by an adherent leukoma and a secondary cataract. The cataract was later needled. The point of entrance of the discission knife can be seen as a scar at the limbus at 6 o'clock. An aftercataract occupies part of the pupil.
