Abstract

Biopsy is surgical removal of a tissue specimen for histopathological evaluation of the clinical lesion to arrive at a confirmatory diagnosis. Most of the ocular and extra ocular lesions are diagnosed by a good history and clinical examination and confirmed by non-invasive investigations. However, there are certain situations that warrant a definitive indication for a biopsy to confirm the clinical diagnosis and plan further management as relevant. The role of ophthalmologist in making a prompt clinical diagnosis and planning the further management along with a pathologist is crucial in saving the patients vision and the eye. Excision biopsy provide both diagnostic and more often a therapeutic benefit to most of the benign conditions and clue to prognosis and further treatment in salvaging the vision and the eye in malignant lesions of the eye.
