EyeRounds Online Atlas of Ophthalmology
Contributor: William Charles Caccamise, Sr, MD, Retired Clinical Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry
*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.
Residuum of subconjunctivally injected long-acting steroid preparation
This photo was taken in 1966. At that time various steroid preparations were available for subconjunctival injection for various intraocular inflammatory diseases. That included long-acting depository type products such as the one used on this patient. The patient had received his injection several weeks before his initial visit to Dr. Caccamise's office.
