This brief review of ocular histopathology with clinicopathological correlation of common ocular lesions is divided into three parts. Part I focuses on processing the pathology specimens, while part II covers the most commonly encountered diseases and is divided into pathology of the lid, conjunctiva, cornea, lens, uvea, retina, and orbit. The final part briefly discusses cytopathology of the eye, AIDS-associated ocular disease, frozen sections, and telepathology. The most informative section is the first, which covers the fixation, grossing, and sectioning of ocular specimens. The tiny specimens that are common in this field present unique processing challenges and this section of the book is particularly useful. Admittedly, the book is meant to be an overview, but the depth with which each disease is covered is too shallow to be of much use to anyone actually practicing ocular medicine.
