*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.

The patient's surgically aphakic heterochromic OD is bluish while the normal OS is brown. A peripheral iridectomy was performed during the intracapsular extraction on the OD. Notice the distichiasis coincidentally apparent in the left lower lid margin.

Distichiasis - apparently unrelated to Fuchs' heterochromic cyclitis - is evident in the photograph in the left lower lid. The lashes of the upper lid appear trimmed.
