What is an ophthalmoscope?


This is an instrument used to examine the inside of the eye. There are two types, Direct and Indirect.

The direct ophthalmoscope enables the optometrist to examine a smaller area of retina at a time. The indirect ophthalmoscope enables a greater area of the retina to be viewed at a time but at a lower magnification.
