Histologically, the conjunctiva is composed of a stratified squamous non-keratinized epithelium, and it is part of the functional unit of the ocular surface together with the cornea, limbus, eyelids, lacrimal, mucous, and  Meibomian gland More Detailss.[1] Goblet cells represent 10% of all conjunctival epithelial cells, and the MUC5AC mucin can be found in its secretory granules.[1]

Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) is a technique for obtaining high-resolution images of biological and non-biological samples.[2]

Our objective is to present the image of a goblet cell using the Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) technique [Figure 1].
