*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 dermatitis frequently is associated with a cataracta complicata that comes to surgery. This patient's incipient cataract progressed rapidly to a stage that required surgery.
