[Histonet] eye-processing

From:"Hans Ooms"

Dear fellow histofreaks !

For we see eye's rarely in daily routine we normally send these specimens to specialised labs. This has to be STOPPED !
So could anyone help me with the next questions please ?

What's the best way of fixing a whole eye for routine sectioning and keeping morphology and cutting capabilities of high standards ? Does anyone have any experience with fixative-injection in the enucleated eye ? (no, not in vivo.......thanks Heaven).
My experience is that when a tumor, growing from the retina towards the corpus vitreum and both are attached, the latter tends to fall off during staining and take tumorparticals with it. 

Thanks again.
