Burton lamp A number of manufacturers make a special hand-held magnifying device for contact lens work. , USA). 00 D housed in a broad frame, within which is mounted a combination of 4 W white light and ultraviolet light fluorescent tubes, each 11 cm long. The operator can switch between the two light sources for white light and fluorescein stain examinations. A key advantage © 2012 Elsevier Ltd of this instrument is that both eyes of the patient can be viewed simultaneously, which facilitates interocular comparisons in the course of contact lens fitting.

21 The Topcon 3D OCT-2000 Optical Coherence Tomography instrument. ) The technique uses Michelson interferometry to compare a partially coherent reference beam to one reflected from tissue. The two beams are combined and interference between the two light signals occurs only when their path lengths match to within the coherence length of light. 11 A tomographic image is generated by simultaneously displaying 100 adjacent scans, whose A 14 B The aim of corneal topography (or keratoscopy) is to describe accurately the shape of the corneal surface in all meridians.

The illumination beam is placed at a separation of 40–60° on the side of the microscope corresponding to the section of the cornea to be viewed. Increasing the angle of the illumination arm increases the depth of the optic section in the cornea, but the same amount of light is spread over a greater depth of cornea, which reduces brightness and contrast and makes the deeper corneal layers in particular more difficult to visualize. Because the light beam is so thin, the illumination must be turned up to maximum brightness.
