*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.
Expulsive choroidal hemmorrhage that occurred during cataract surgery in Gaya, India
Expulsive choroidal hemorrhage is a calamity that can occurr during cataract surgery. Rarely, it may follow the surgery by hours, days or weeks. Remember this basic caveat when contemplating cataract surgery on the remaining second eye: " The second eye has a tendency to behave like the first eye when the same procedure is performed on it."
