Cameras for Slit Lamp Microscopy

A slit lamp is a high-intensity light source often used in Optometry and Ophthalmology practices. It is often used with a biomicroscope to do an examination of the eyes. These lamps allow light to penetrate the eye and give the clinician or doctor an illuminated view of the anterior and posterior segments of the eye.

A slit lamp consists of a microscope with a very bright light and a digital camera. This allows the ophthalmologist to take high-quality pictures as well as to look closer at the different structures of the eye inside and outside. Dilating drops may also be used to widen the pupil for a better look at the back of the eye.

A high-resolution camera with an option to zoom in, the ability to distinguish color shades, and image sharpness is a critical component of a slit microscope.
