This image depicts the hands of a clinician, retracting the lids of both eyes of a 7-month-old child, who had been operated on at age 3-days, for the purpose of correcting a condition known as congenital glaucoma, due to a case of congenital rubella. Note that the baby’s left eye also displayed the cloudiness associated with a congenital rubella cataract, and can be compared to the normal appearance of the infant’s right eye. See PHIL 15399, for a closer view of this child’s ophthalmic condition.
