Contact Lens Practice. 2nd ed. ) 5 Chapter 1 Part I: Examination and Grading feature of interest. Thus, the feature of interest is being illuminated by side-scattering of light from the optic section. e. parallelepiped or broad beam). Retroillumination This refers to any technique in which light is reflected from the iris, anterior lens surface or retina, and is used to backilluminate a section of the cornea, which is more anteriorly positioned.

The linked illumination/ observation system can be moved about independently of the head position, and a fixation target is provided to assist eye positioning and help the patient keep his/her eyes still. The entire head mount and linked illumination/observation system are contained on an instrument table which can be adjusted in height – as can the practitioner and patient seats – to allow a comfortable posture to be adopted by both the examiner and patient. The slit lamp The illumination system is called the slit lamp – so called because of its capacity to project a slit of light onto the ocular surface.

The objective lens is brought forward until the gel comes into contact with the anaesthetized cornea (the objective lens never touches the cornea). The gel serves to optically couple the objective lens of the microscope to the cornea. As soon as the gel contacts the cornea, the computer monitor displays real-time images. The examination room is arranged in such a way that the operator can see the objective lens on the cornea and the video monitor in the same field of view. An automatic scan is then made through the anterior-posterior axis of the cornea.
