Eye examination. Ophthalmologist uses a head-mounted ophthalmoscope to examine the eye of a man. This is also known as "indirect" ophthalmoscopy. In the background a slit-lamp, another type of ophthalmoscope, is seen. At left, the ophthalmologist looks into the eyepiece of his portable illuminating ophthalmic microscope while holding the patient's eye open. The conjunctiva, iris, cornea and internal lens of the eye can be examined to detect eye disorders.
