EyeRounds Online Atlas of Ophthalmology

*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.
Evisceration with lucite ball implant
This teenager had an evisceration followed by a lucite ball implant. The cornea was retained during the evisceration. In the post-operative phase, he presented with this primary position. Because of a remote posibility of sympathetic ophthalmia in this operation, all other eviscerations were performed without retention of the cornea and without an intrascleral cavity implant. Evisceration (simple type) was done on all panophthalmitis cases.
