The subspecialty of pathology and ophthalmology known as ophthalmic pathology focuses on disorders of the eye and the tissues that surround it.

To accurately diagnose the illness, ophthalmic pathologists examine tissues removed by ophthalmologists. Both macroscopically (by physical examination) and through light microscopy, the diseased tissue is analysed. Additionally, there are situations when other methods like electron microscopy, molecular testing, and immunohistochemistry are used. The disease’s diagnosis is crucial to the treatment of the patient. A tissue diagnosis as well as details on the aetiology, pathophysiology, and prognosis of eye disorders are available from ophthalmic pathologists to practising ophthalmologists. Ophthalmic pathologists are essential to academic medical institutes because of their extensive understanding of eye diseases. By instructing ophthalmologists and ophthalmology students

Ophthalmic pathologists are essential to academic medical institutes because of their extensive understanding of eye diseases. They help to keep the standard of eye care high by instructing residents and medical students as well as practising ophthalmologists. In the USA, there are many ophthalmology training programmes. John G. Clarkson acknowledged the significance of ocular pathology in education in an editorial titled “Pathology of the eye


Ophthalmic diagnostic tools come in a variety of shapes and sizes:

  • The most typical approach is to apply solutions topically to the eye.
  • Lightly brushed over the eye with strips to stain it.
  • Intravenous injection into a vein in the upper arm, allowing the dye to go through the bloodstream and into the eye.

The following are some applications for ophthalmic diagnostic agents, most frequently in conjunction with ophthalmic anaesthetics:

  • diagnostic ophthalmic exams
  • minor operations on the cornea or conjunctiva, two of the eye’s superficial tissues (the membrane that covers the eye and the inner surface of the eyelids)
  • removing foreign objects
  • Taking out the sutures
  • A diagnostic technique called tonometry measures the pressure inside the eye (intraocular pressure)
  • Ophthalmic angiography uses an intravenous injection and a specialised camera to check the retina and macula of the eye as well as the state of the blood vessels in the eye.
  • For the deeper layers of the eye, use ophthalmic anaesthesia

Who needs to report pathological samples from the eyes?

It may be suitable for the specimen to be reported by a pathologist who specialises in a separate but related field of pathology (and who participates in the applicable EQA system), such as dermatopathology or neuropathology, depending on the kind of tissue.

Good clinical practise calls for pathologists to report specimens when they have the necessary specialised knowledge, abilities, and experience.
