Ophthalmic pathology is a subspecialty of histopathology that deals with the diagnosis and characterization of eye diseases. Ophthalmic pathologists study tissues excised by ophthalmologists through evisceration, enucleation and other small biopsies.

The diagnosis of these lesions is based on the clinical as well as histopathological features.
This study was conducted to evaluate the histomorphological and clinicopathological spectrum of ophthalmic lesions at a tertiary care hospital.
