*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.
Immature cuneiform senile cortical cataract
The inferior nasal quadrant of the lens is the most frequent area involved in incipient senile cataract formation. Slit-lamp examination of this quadrant under full mydriasis will frequently reveal an incipient cataract that otherwise would not have been detected.
