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.

Following a surgical incision at the limbus, a dehiscence may occur in the wound. Instead of a frank prolapse of the iris, a dew-drop lesion - a cystoid cicatrix - may develop.
