This contribution provides an overview of diseases of eye and orbit and their appearance on magnetic resonance imaging. In recent years the diagnosis of eye and orbit pathology has profited significantly from increasingly sophisticated technical developments in the field of tomographic methods. Due to the small size of the examination area the improvement in spatial resolution and soft tissue contrast leads to an increase in image quality. In most clinical questions concerning eye and orbit pathologies magnetic resonance imaging is superior to computed tomography and should be early performed.
