Paper Abstract

Over the past years ophthalmic endoscopes with intraocular diameters as small as 0.89 mm have been developed for the observation of certain internal structures of the eye which cannot be easily visualized through conventional slit lamp/microscope arrangements. Unlike other observation systems, endoscopes feature a magnification factor that increases as their distal part nears the object to be observed. Consequently, an endoscope can also be of help as a high magnification microscope. Such an instrument has been enhanced for this purpose and is described.
