*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.

Milia of skin of upper lid

milia of skin of upper lid

from Yanoff and Fine, Ocular Pathology:
" Milia are identical histologically to epidermal inclusion cysts; they differ only in size, milia being the smaller; they may represent retention cysts, caused by the occlusion of a pilosebaceous follicle or of sweat pores, or benign keratizing tumors, or they may have a dual origin."
