*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.

Atopic dermatis with cataracta complicata

atopic dermatis with cataracta complicata

The patient has chronic atopic dermatitis - notice the scratch marks on her forehead. She is aphakic with a corneal contact lens OD and has a developing cataract OS. The cataract that was in the OD went into intumescence very quickly. All atopic dermatitis patients must be followed carefully for cataract formation.
