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.

Acute meibomianitis marginalis
The closer the meibomian gland involvement is to the lid margin, the greater the surgeon's desire to avoid surgery. Hopefully this attack of an internal sty will abate under medical treatment. In operating near the lid margin, there is an increased potential for cosmetic blemishes, e.g. notching and trichiasis.
