  • Cross-Section of Enucleated Specimen

    May 18 2020 by McGill University Health Centre

    The eye is an organ with 3 layers (from the outermost to the innermost): fibrous layer (sclera and cornea), uveal tract (iris, ciliary body, and choroid), and retina. The lens divides the eye into the aqueous chamber (filled with aqueous humor) and vitreous chamber (filled with vitreous humor). The iris divides the aqueous chamber into anterior and posterior chambers. This image illustrates the aqueous chamber (1), posterior chamber (2), and vitreous chamber (3).

    Condition/keywords: aqueous chamber, cross-section, enucleation, posterior chamber intraocular lens (PCIOL), vitreous chamber

  • Enucleated Eye Showing Choroidal Melanoma

    May 18 2020 by McGill University Health Centre

  • Enucleated Eye with Cataractous Lens

    May 18 2020 by McGill University Health Centre

    The cornea is transparent and thin. The lens is cataractous. The ora Serrata (arrow) demarcates a transition zone in the uveal tract between the pars plana of the ciliary body and the retina.

    Condition/keywords: cataract, enucleation

  • Magnification of Enucleated Eye and Iridocorneal Angle

    May 18 2020 by McGill University Health Centre

    Image showing a higher magnification of the iridocorneal angle of the same specimen. The anterior chamber (1) is separated from the posterior chamber (2) by the iris. The zonulae (3) hold the lens in place. Note the pars plicata of the ciliary body (arrow).

    Condition/keywords: anterior chamber, enucleation, iridocorneal angle, pars plicata, posterior chamber intraocular lens (PCIOL), zonulae

  • Magnification of the Eye Wall from an Enucleated Eye

    May 18 2020 by McGill University Health Centre

    Magnification of the eye wall showing the neurosensory retina (1), the retinal pigment epithelium (arrow), a thin layer overlying the choroid (2), and the sclera (3).

    Condition/keywords: choroid, enucleation, neurosensory retina, retinal pigment epithelium, sclera

  • Enucleated Cataractous Lens Seen Through the Pupil

    May 18 2020 by McGill University Health Centre

    The anterior view of enucleated eye shows a cataractous lens seen through the pupil.

    Condition/keywords: cataract, enucleation

  • Posterior View of Enucleated Eye with Extraocular Extension of an Intraocular Tumor

    May 18 2020 by McGill University Health Centre

    Posterior view of enucleated eye showing the extraocular extension of an intraocular tumor and extensive areas of hemorrhage, including a subdural hemorrhage.

    Condition/keywords: enucleation, extraocular extension, intraocular tumor

  • Enucleated Eye: Phthisis Bulbi

    May 18 2020 by McGill University Health Centre

    The enucleation specimen shows an atrophic eye (< 16 mm in its largest dimension) with complete disorganization of the posterior structures.

    Condition/keywords: enucleation, phthisis bulbi

  • Magnification of Enucleated Eye: Phthisis Bulbi

    May 18 2020 by McGill University Health Centre

    Higher magnification of enucleated eye with phthisis bulbi revealing bone spicules (arrow) corresponding to ossification due to metaplastic changes of the retinal pigmented epithelium (RPE) cells toward osteoblasts.

    Condition/keywords: phthisis bulbi

  • Enucleated Specimen with Pseudo-Retinal Detachment

    May 18 2020 by McGill University Health Centre

    In (A), a pupil–optic view of an enucleation specimen shows pseudo–retinal detachment. Note the absence of fluid beneath the retina (arrow). In (B), high magnification of a pseudo–choroidal detachment shows the bare sclera separate from the choroid and retinal pigmented epithelium.

    Condition/keywords: choroidal detachment, enucleation, retinal detachment

  • Iridocorneal Endothelial Syndrome Enucleated Eye

    May 18 2020 by McGill University Health Centre

    This case of iridocorneal endothelial syndrome shows cupping of the optic nerve consistent with glaucoma (arrow).
