Ocular Pathology

Ocular pathology is an integral part of the final MRCOphth / MRCS. However, most candidates probably have never seen a single histopathology slide until a few months before the examination. It is recommended that you should start examining the slides four to six months before the examination to get use to using the microscope and analysing the slides. Most teaching centre have a collection of ophthalmology slides for examination and the pathologists are usually helpful and imaginative (for example who else would have incorporated the following figure into their work?
