*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.

nasal pterygium, partial arcus senilis, and iridoschisis superiorly

The iridoschisis is seen at 11:00 o'clock as a veil flapping in the anterior chamber and at 1:00 o'clock as a shredded wheat effect. Slit-lamp and gonioscopy give a much better view of this pathology. The eye should be followed for glaucoma.
