*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.

Sclerosing keratitis

sclerosing keratitis

Reference Duane/Fuchs: Textbook of Ophthalmolgy: " This has retained its name given byVon Graef, because at the spot where the infiltration is present in the cornea dense and white opacities are left which often look like sclera. Sclerosing keratitis occurs either alone (as in this case) or more frequently as an accompanying symptom of scleritis."
