*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.

Smallpox - vascularized leukoma OD and adherent leukoma OS

Smallpox - vascularized leukoma OD and adherent leukoma OS

This patient escaped blindness because the left eye escaped the corneal ravages that destroyed the vision in the right eye. A large, heavily vascularized leukoma destroyed the vision OD - the result of an ulcus serpens. Fortunately, the same initial ulcus serpens in the OS resulted in a localized adherent leukoma with residual vision that was adequate for the patient's basic functions.
