This chapter provides basic and useful information about handling and processing eye specimens as well as diagnosing common diseases encountered by ophthalmic pathologists. Each section is devoted to a specific part of the eye (cornea, conjunctiva, iris and cilliary body, choroid, retina, vitreous, and the optic nerve), providing useful pearls about the basic anatomy, disease processes, special staining, and tissue processing.
