*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.
Intumescent traumatic cataract
Intumescent stage of a traumatic cataract with a persistent posterior synechia at 3 o'clock. There are pigment remnants on the anterior lens capsule. These represent the points from which other posterior synechiae tore loose under the influence of mydriatic and cycloplegic drops that were used to dilate the pupil.
