Ophthalmic Pathology

Ophthalmic pathology includes disorders of the eye and associated structures. This can include examination of biopsies from the conjunctiva and cornea but most of the specimens we receive are whole eyes, which are most often removed either because of a painful, ‘dead’ eye (for example, following penetrating eye injury and/or infection) or because of a tumour. The most commonly encountered tumours are ocular melanoma in adults and retinoblastoma in children.
