Ophthalmoscopy

 

a method of examining the interior, or fundus, of the eye. Ophthalmoscopy requires a magnifying glass, a light source, and an ophthalmoscope, which is a mirror with a hole in the center for directing a beam of light within the eye. Complex electrical ophthalmoscopes are also manufactured; these are equipped with their own light source and optical systems.

All patients were conducted the history taking, common ophthalmological examination (visual acuity test, biomicroscopy, direct ophthalmoscopy, tonometry, perimetry), objective examination (decrease or absence of the tear meniscus at the eyelid margins, presence of conjunctival mucous secretions in the form of threads, local swelling of bulbar conjunctiva with superimposing on the free edge of the eyelid, flaccid conjunctival hyperemia, inclusions polluting the tear film).
This technique is well tolerated in awake patients most likely since the light intensity used is often well below that which is used in standard indirect ophthalmoscopy," Mukai said.
