*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.

Notching of upper lid margin with trichiasis - result of trauma

notching of upper lid margin with trichiasis - result of trauma

As the surgeon enters into the sanctity of the lid margin, his responsibility ever increases. The photo shows the results of lidmargin repair following a laceration of that area. Healing has left a notch in the margin with an accompanying trichiasis. Surgery was done in the 1940s. With modern oculoplastic techniques, this type of margin deformity is much less likely to occur.
