*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.

Slit-lamp examination revealed an intumescent cataract and atrophy of the entire pigment ruff that normally rims the pupil. The iris appears transparent where the ruff has disappeared. The patient had a history of bouts of anterior uveitis in the right eye.
