45th Anniversary Special Issue on Ocular Histology

Journal of Histotechnology's passion of advancing ocular histology can be dated back to its birth year, 1977 [1]. In addition to embedding medium and microtomy, many technical improvements have been made in the near half century. However, artifacts in ocular tissue sections such as deformation, detachment from glass slides, and retinal separation are still commonly seen in recent literatures. Maintaining intact morphology and tissue integrity on a glass slide for routine, immuno and molecular histology studies is very challenging since the cornea, iris, ciliary body and trabecular meshwork, and lens are more susceptible.

In its 45th anniversary special issue, JOH is seeking manuscripts that address scientific and technical advancements in ocular histology field.  A histological understanding of the eye helps us improve the diagnosis and enrich the therapeutic methods for ocular diseases. We are calling for detailed histopathological changes in all kinds of ocular related diseases, especially for ocular trauma, atopic keratoconjunctivitis, dye eye, glaucoma and so on.

The research established on animal models are welcome and any histopathological analysis based on clinical samples is highly expected. Particularly, JOH is seeking to collect histotechnological methods such as fixation, processing, sectioning, and other treatments that preserve the structural integrity of eyeball sections from various species for routine staining, immunohistochemical and molecular assays.
