*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.
Amaurotic cat's eye OU - an ultimate tragedy
This photo of an unforgettable Indian boy who was brought to The Kurji Holy Family Hospital Eye Clinic speaks for itself. The photo was taken by Dr. Caccamise during the eye operating season (January, February, March, and early April) of 1962.
The same young boy with the photo lightened through computer manipulation.
Another Indian child with amaurotic cat's eye reflex in his left eye. All retinoblastoma cases were examined by indirect ophthalmoscopy under general anesthesia. Almost without exception lesions were found in both eyes.
