*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 Indian adult male presented wih a normal, brown OS. However, the OD demonstrated patchy areas of blue due to patchy iris atrophy. There was a mature corticonuclear cataract. The typical findings withFuchs' heterochromic cyclitis were not present, e.g. KP distributed over the posterior surface of the cornea and a cataracta complicata characteristic of Fuchs' heterochromic cyclitis.
