I have been doing a fair number of eyes lately but in paraffin. I find
that for optimal fixation it is helpful to inject the eye with fixative
shortly after the necropsy.

Dear Eye People,
It has been about 25 years since I processed eyes.  I just got some
whole rabbit eyes that I want to fix and process into GMA.  They came in
media with antibiotic in it one wet ice.  I assume that I put them whole
into cold formalin to maintain the shape, then at some point I will need
extract the fluid inside without collapsing so that I can process into
I am going to use graded changes of the GMA as my dehydrating agent
alcohol (this will be necessary for the final product which will contain
hydrogel implant which does not survive solvent processing, thus the
of GMA embedding).  I seem to remember using a needle and syringe to
some fluid and then replace it with the GMA in stages????
Thank you so much for your advise,
