*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.

Dermatochalasis with papillomata

dermatochalasis with papillomata

Typical " bags and pouches and lid growths " with aging in some patients.

Dermatochalasis must not be used interchangeably with blepharochalasis. The former is an aging change with cutis laxa senilis and redundant skin. Blepharochalasis is rare and usually occurs in those under 20 years who have had recurrent attacks of unexplained edema.
