EyeRounds Online Atlas of Ophthalmology

*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.
Prolapse of the iris following cataract surgery
The iris prolapsed through the entire temporal half of the 180 degree limbal incision. Immediate surgical repair (excision of the prolapsed iris) was indicated. This was a bugbear for cataract surgeons prior to the Kelman small-incision era.
