*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.

Fuchs' heterochromic cyclitis OD

Fuchs' heterochromic cyclitis OD

The patient was a 42-year-old Caucasian male whose left eye was completely normal. The iris of the left eye was homogeneously brown. The right eye demonstrated Fuchs' heterochromic cyclitis: the eye was quiet; the posterior surface of the cornea had a scattering of fine KP - not seen in the photo. However, there is a question of 1 KP off the pupil margin at 3 o'clock in the photo. The iris has extensive but patchy iris atrophy areas. There are immature cataractous changes in the lens - right eye only.
