The fundamental difference is that a dissecting microscope is used for relatively low power examination of three dimensional structures, but the compound microscope is used for higher power examination of relatively flat structures such as tissue sections. The objective lens of the dissecting microscope can be arms length from the specimen, but the objective lens of the compound microscope must be within millimeters at the highest magnification.
