*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.

" The differentiation between anophthalmos or complete absence of the eye and extreme microphthalmos or a rudimentary small eye can only be made by the examination of serial, histologic sections of the orbit. The differentiation cannot be made clinically. The term clinical anophthalmos is applied to the condition where no eye can be found clinically. " from Yanoff and Fine: Ocular pathology.
