*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.
Foreign body - rust deposit in cornea at 7 o'clock overlying the iris frill in that region
This rust deposit can be treated easily: Instil a topical anesthetic drop. Lift out the foreign body with a moistened Q-tip or f.b. spud. Use an electric handheld motorized dental drill to cleanout residual rust-stain and leave a completely clean corneal area.
