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.
Traumatic rosette cataract - a perfect example
A special type of anterior or posterior cataract is seen frequently following trauma. The lens opacities take the form of petals, usually ten, in the anterior or posterior cortex, and clinically are called rosette or flowerlike cataracts.
