They are both "light" microscopes. The main difference is that a dissecting microscope is always binocular, so that the image can be seen in 3D, which is required for accurate dissection. Dissecting 'scopes have a lower magnification (usually a maximum of about 20X ) than what you refer to as a "light" microscope (frequently a maximum of about 1000X ).
