Ocular Pathology

Ralph C. Eagle, Jr., MD Chief, Pathology Service

The Ocular Pathology Service at Wills Eye processes one of the largest volumes of ophthalmic specimens in the world. Under the direction of Ralph C. Eagle, Jr., MD, the specimens are examined grossly and microscopically by staff ophthalmologists who have specific fellowship training in ophthalmic pathology.

Wills Eye residents, medical students and residents from area hospitals rotate through the Ophthalmic Pathology Department and actively assist in processing and reading slides. Wills Eye residents at all levels have the opportunity to utilize the pathology facilities to work up specific cases and to complete clinicopathologic research projects.

This unique resource not only gives pathologic diagnosis of diseases but also is an integral part of research and ophthalmic education.
