Ophthalmic pathology is a mainstay in ophthalmic practice. A deep understanding of ophthalmic pathology is essential to being a good clinician, since what is seen from other disease entities in ophthalmic practice is simply an interpretation of gross pathology and sometimes a microscopic evaluation of diseases.
Ophthalmic pathology is usually directed to ophthalmologists by general pathologists. Ophthalmologists are not used to identifying diseases at a histopathological or cellular level. The pathogenesis of diseases is dependent on ongoing changes over time, something that is difficult to illustrate in ophthalmic pathology reviews, since images only represent instantaneous two-dimensional events with no temporal consideration. This adds to the complexity of ophthalmic pathology.
In this review, we illustrate clinical and pathological entities by means of 3000 high-resolution original images. In order to assist the viewer's comprehension, ongoing changes in disease pathology are also demonstrated using over 300 video clips.
The CD comes with a comprehensive narrative, and the illustrations can be magnified. A search engine allows for easy navigation.
You now have the opportunity to listen, visualize, and write your comments in the accompanying book. Use this chance to assist yourself in the understanding of clinical pathology, which will help to make you a better clinician.

Ophthalmology is the only branch of medicine that strongly depends on the clinical skills of the practitioner
for making a sound diagnosis. In eye diseases, an ophthalmologist can simply 'see it all', starting from
the eyelid and ocular surface, and proceeding to the eyeball and intraocular structures up to the retina and
optic nerve. This makes ophthalmology a difficult science to master, since so much depends on the clinical
capabilities of the physician.
Ophthalmic pathology is a mainstay in ophthalmic practice. A deep understanding of ophthalmic pathology is essential to being a good clinician since what is seen from other disease entities in ophthalmic practice is simply an interpretation of gross pathology and sometimes a microscopic evaluation of diseases.
Ophthalmic pathology is usually directed towards ophthalmologists by general pathologists. The correlation between the gross and microscopic picture is poorly defined in currently available ophthalmic pathology reviews. Moreover, ophthalmologists are not used to identifying diseases at a histopathological or cellular level. This adds to the complexity of ophthalmic pathology. In addition, the pathogenesis of diseases is dependent on ongoing changes over time. Pathogenesis is hard to illustrate in ophthalmic pathology reviews since images only represent instant two-dimensional events with no temporal consideration.
The aim of this work is to present an easy-to-study, comprehensive and in-depth understanding of basic ophthalmic pathology, including its clinical correlation to practising ophthalmologists and pathologists. This will allow a greater understanding of the aetiology, pathogenesis and manifestation of, and complications seen in, various disease entities following a correct diagnosis. This will have a positive effect on all individual ophthalmologist practices.
Great effort was taken in the creation of the video clips and 3D animation, in order to ensure the accurate
demonstration of the pathogenesis of the various diseases. Appropriate attention was paid to the dimensions
and anatomical relationship of the various structures in order to show tissue interactions in the eye in real
The interactive DVD comes with clearly written instructions to assist the user in following the narrator and the illustrated pages with the minimum of effort. This is the perfect way to enhance your senses: by listening to the narrator, perusing the pages, following the instructions and noting down your comments, the information presented will be reinforced and more easily retained. We hope that you will find this useful for your practice.
