*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.

Chronic dacryocystitis with draining fistula

chronic dacryocystitis with draining fistula OS -  #2 - another case

This female patient is a candidate for a dacryocystorhinostomy. Observe the peculiar linear reflexes surrounding the opening of the fistula. Similar but much less conspicuous linear reflexex are seen in the previous monocular photo of a draining fistula. As an added note: a vast majority of patients who have tear drainage problems are females over 40 years of age.
