*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.

It is estimated that 25% of ptosis patients have their ptosis bilaterally. As in all cases of a congenital abnormality, ptosis cases should be evaluated for other congenital defects and a possible relationship to syndromes that include ptosis among their grouped abnormalities.
